The player or team with their ball closest to the boccino wins the round and scores a point for ball closer than the nearest ball of their opponent. The player or team to reach 13 points first, wins the game.
Draw a shooting circle in the sand approximately 5 to 8 feet in diameter. If you are not in the sand, you can use markers such as a rock or stick to mark the shooting circle.
To Decide Who Throws First
Any player stands inside the shooting circle and throws the boccino out away from the shooting circle. Each player tosses one of their ball at the boccino. The player with the ball closest to the boccino throws first to begin a round.
Once a round begins, the player or team trailing tosses their balls until landing one of their balls closer to the boccino than the nearest ball of their opponent. The round ends when all the balls have been thrown.
The winner throws to begin a new round. The winner can throw from the original circle or by drawing a new circle at the boccino’s location at the end of the previous round.
The game ends when a player or team reaches 13 points or any point total you have decided on.
