RESIN BOCCE BALL
Professional grade bocce balls.
Throw your bocce balls closer to the pallino than your opponent.
Advanced Game Tip:
Using your bocce ball to hit other balls or the pallino into a more favorable position is allowed and encouraged in advanced play.
Whichever team has a ball closest to the Pallino is the “In” team, and they are the only team that scores that round. The “In” team earns 1 point for every ball that is closer to the pallino than the closest ball of the opposing (or “Out”) team. The “In” team can earn 1-4 points per round.
If balls from opposing teams are the same distance from the pallino, it is considered a draw and no points are awarded for these balls.
The “In” team (or winner) of the round starts the next round (or a coin toss for a draw). Play continues in rounds until one team reaches 12 points.
Red has the closest 2 balls to the Pallino. Team 1 wins this end and receives 2 points. Team 2 scores 0 points, and the other points do not affect the score.
Team 1’s yellow ball is the closest to the Pallino. The next closest ball is team two’s blue ball. Team 1 has won this end and receives 1 point. The blue ball serves as the defense, scoring 0 points but preventing green from getting more. The other balls do not affect the score here.
Team 2 has the closest 3 balls to the pallino. Team 2 has won this end and receives 3 points. The red ball serves as a defense, scoring 0 points but preventing Team 2 from scoring a fourth.
