New Age Petanque balls - 12 balls in four colours and 2 white jacks
Indoor Petanque is played on all kinds of floors - wooden, tiled, carpeted - as the soft balls of synthetic leather will not damage the floor. The balls can also be used outdoors on flagstones and asphalt. Similar to the game Boule and Boccia, the game is about placing your own balls as close as possible to the target ball called the “jack”.
A player from the starting team now throws the jack out onto the course. A player from the same team throws the first ball - and tries to get as close to the jack as possible.
A player from the opposing team now tries either to throw a ball closer to the jack - or to shoot the first ball out of the away. The team that is not closest to the jack carries on throwing until one of their balls lands closest to the jack. After this, the other team has a turn.
When a team does not have any balls left, the other team throws the remainder of their balls.
When all balls have been thrown, the points are counted. Only one team gets points in each round. A team receives as many points as it has balls closest to the jack than those of their the opponent. The team that was the closest and won the round, marks a new throwing field and starts the next round.
The winner is the team that reaches 13 points first.
