The sun is up a little longer in the sky, when the weekend comes around you are itching to get outside, so now is the time to check out the latest and greatest tailgate games. Do you have a small portable cornhole set? Or have you picked up a Frisbeer set yet? Maybe you already have your games and you just need to pick up a beer pong table or some beer pong balls. Please check out our new line of gear.
This game is one that you may have never heard of. It’s called FRISBEER. You throw the ultimate disc in between the sticks and try to knock over a can. There is a little more to it than that obviously so you can dig into the site to find out more!
The Super Bowl is today and people should be out tailgating in full force. What is better than playing tailgate games while waiting for the grill to heat up and filling up those little square in your Super Bowl pool. What games should you be playing today? How about some bocce ball. Not sure what size bocce set to use? Check out this sizing chart which should help out in your bocce decision making.
The size of a bocce ball is measured in millimeters (mm) and across the diameter. They come in all sorts of sizes but the most common are 73mm, 90mm, 100mm, and 107mm. The professionals use 107mm but those are pretty bulky so most backyard players just stick with a 100mm high quality resin bocce ball.
What are these bocce ball things made of?
The standard material of a bocce ball is a poly-resin composite. Have you ever been bowling — its just like that bowling ball you sling down the lane. There are also steel bocce balls that are better known as petanque, and plastic sets that are great for kids or for the beach. Have you tried beach bocce? It rules.
BOCCE BALL LEAGUES:
Bocce leagues are also springing up all over the place. Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Portland, San Diego, Denver are just a few of the cities that offer great bocce leagues. The Day of Games has the DogDaze leagues which feature bocce games. Its a great way to meet other people in the area and a great excuse to get outside and enjoy some fresh air.
INCLUDED IN BOCCE SETS –
8 – Bocce balls (2 different designs)
1 – Pallino (jack)
2 – Can Coolers (koozie’s)
1 – Bottle Opener / Tape Measure
AREA OF PLAY –
Bocce can be played anywhere – Beach, Park, Backyard, Alleyway; pretty much any open area. It is not recommended that you use this set indoors, but feel free to play wherever you like. Just stick to the “Basics” and only throw Bocce Balls at the Pallino. Do not throw bocce balls at anything else.
COURT SIZE (optional) –
Most people just play Bocce in any open area. The Pallino is tossed and then the Bocce balls follow. If you are interested in building your own official backyard Bocce course, then the dimensions are as follows:
13 foot box, then a 65 foot rectangle, then another 13 foot box.
There are boundary walls typically created around the entire court.
BOCCE BALL RULES PER THE DAY OF GAMES –
There are various ways to play Bocce and many ways to keep score. This is the Day of Games way. Bocce can be played 1vs.1, 2vs.2, 3vs.3, 4vs.4 or even 5+vs.5+ (if you have enough bocce balls). The rules below describe games played one team vs. another team. This can be 1vs.1, 2vs.2, or 4vs.4. If you would like to play Bocce Ball with more than 2 teams the rules are very similar but each person gets their own balls to play with rather than partnering up with a teammate. The rest of the rules are the same with regard to scoring, order, and how to play bocce.
Playing in an open area:
1) Decide which team will toss first.
2) This team will create a line in the playing field and this will act as the foul line. Nobody is allowed to walk past this line until all the Bocce balls are thrown. If someone crosses the foul line this will result in a negative point! (optional rule)
3) Team drawing the line will toss the Pallino into the field of play
4) This same team will act first and throw a Bocce ball at the Pallino. Teams then alternate throws.
5) Once all the Bocce balls have been thrown the scoring of this round takes place. Only one team is allowed to score in each round. A point is awarded for each ball that is closer to the Pallino than the closest ball of the opponents.
6) Optional Rule – Award 2 points to any ball that is touching the Pallino.
7) The game can be played to 11, 21, or any number you come up with. Win by 2 points.
Playing in a court with boundary walls: Same rules apply as above with these additions -
8 ) The Pallino cannot hit the back wall on its initial toss. It is allowed to hit the back wall during game play.
9 ) Thrown Bocce balls cannot hit the back wall. This is considered out of boundaries and the ball is dead.
Bocce Leagues for your enjoyment.
