Boules in Marseille

A 6 min. clip of a typical neighborhood game in Marseille.
The guy with the Levi's t-shirt is hilarious: he can't stop talking, knows it all, and - of course - argues about the score.
It's a pretty bulky file so depending on your connection it may be best to let it load first and then watch it without interruptions.

Rolling distance : 21 feet from player to the base of the board.

Team of 4 or 5 players. Each player thrown 3 pétanque ball with a rolling motion.

trumps order : spades, clubs, diamond, heart and no trump.

If the ball fall in a hole of the same trump, you double the count. Each hole has a trump and a value.

Fun to play
