Funny you say that, I just broke out the bocce set last weekend.

I can't wait for the weather to get nicer.

Do you play 'anything-goes, mongol horde style' bocce, or 'on the pitch' sissy bocce? We have a rule that everyone has to drink whenever somebody's score adds up to an odd number.

About three hours! I was hanging around getting p!ssed off about being censored! lol

Anyway, Mongol Horde Anything Goes rules (MHAG) is when you can throw the 'p' or object ball anywhere. The only rule is if the resulting round is going to cause damage to something (Ask Sasquatch about my eaves-troughs, no sh!t!) Of course the drink on odd score rule applies as well.

Kinda sounds like Full Contact Bocce we play at the firehouse . . . throw the 'p' over the firehouse (3 storys) and then play from there . . .It's usually better for us to start the game in the parking lot. Oh and if you arent paying attention the other guys are allowed to smack ya . . . where ever they make contact is the rule.

Okay, no, we play pretty close to the book. I don't need my neighbors beating my ass when a bocce ball splatters thier kids head!
