Petanque games

Petanque is a game of southern France, which is played with metal balls that are quite heavy. You can play in teams or every player for himself.
At the start of a game, you are behind a line and you start by throwing a small wooden ball called a jack. Then, the first player throws the first ball. It should be thrown as close as possible to the jack.
Other players play in turn and each throws a ball. The winner is the one who's closest to the jack. If a ball touches the jack, it marks bonus points.
