We played in the dark at our campground. These aren't the italian balls mentioned in a previous comment, but they are great fun. You can get them and the really nice italian balls at http://www.playaboule.com

If you love bocce, you’ll love our site: http://www.bocce.ca. More importantly those ‘pretty’ balls you reference are in fact ‘made in China’ crappy Sportscraft balls. The best balls money can buy are the ‘made in Italy’ Perfetta sets. We sell them at: http://www.bocce.ca/merchandise.html
Happy bocce to you and yours, Jason.

Other 2 are the classic “Raffa” and another version named “Volo”.
In Italy about 4-5 millions (at the 2nd place after soccer) of people play bocce.
But many others think that is a stupid game, to me is very cool, I restart to play it (Raffa version)after 14 years and I like it more than before.
All apologies for my english, I hope you understand me.
For any question, mail me.
Bye all.

We really enjoy playing it at family gatherings. It’s a great game!

A group of distinguished old men, in three piece suits, the sun setting behind them as the toss the bocce balls. Beautiful!

We brought our first back with us from there as children. It is still a family favorite.

It’s awesome. You might want to try Kubb – It’s a swedish game as well. It’s a lot of fun. Great sites in America so you can save some money.

My nephew threw one at my son at a b-day party, and I swear he grew a 2nd head. IT is a great FHE game, we do it all the time!

I’m all about competition…and a few simple balls and actually any size yard is all you need. Oh and people to play. Lots of fun!

My brother and I did enjoy the occasional game of croquet when we were little. There’s something so relaxing about those old yard games!
