It's a game that has transcended cultures, generations, and borders, having been played by kings and citizens alike. George Washington had a court at his home in Mount Vernon in the 1780s, Galileo was obsessed with it when he wasn't gazing toward the heavens, and Augustus even adopted it from his Roman countrymen who played since the 3rd century. This game, of course, still played by millions and considered the third most popular sport, is bocce ball. And with this Classic 8-Ball 2-Color Bocce Ball Set from Yardgames, you too, can enjoy the rich competition of bocce in your own backyard. Bocce ball, also referred to as bocci or boccie, is easy to play and everything besides an open space to play is included in this set's large, convenient carrying case. 4 red balls and 4 blue balls, each with 2 different patterns to seperate teams easily, measure 100mm in diameter are inside, as well as a white pallino ball, or jack, to get the game rolling. The poly-resin construction of the balls ensure they will last as long as the game itself has. Easy to play at parties or picnics, you can start by making 2 separate teams of 1 to 4 people and flip a coin to see who will throw the jack, or small, white pallino ball, across the court to begin the game. The jack can be thrown anywhere in the yard if you aren't playing in a defined court, but far enough to add some difficulty and strategy to the game. Another reason why it is a great lawn game for all ages, after the jack is thrown, the rules of a bocce ball game are straightforward. The team who threw the jack will toss the first ball from the same spot and try to get their ball as close to the jack as possible. Alternate between teams until all the bocce balls are bowled. Scoring is based on which team's ball ended up closest to the jack. The team with the closest ball will receive 1 point and the other team will not receive any. If the team who has the closest ball has 2, 3, or 4 balls closer than the other team, they will receive that amount of points points. After adding the scores, repeat the the process until a team earns the traditional 12 points - or pick a winning score that lets you play this classic yard game until the sun goes down. Generations of family fun is all inside this 8-Ball Bocce Ball Set from Yardgames.
