BOCCE Rules

The Dillon BOCCE Courts are located along Tenderfoot Street just off Lake Dillon Drive. Anyone can play Bocce – it’s fun for all ages. Bocce Ball sets are available for rent just across the street at Lake Dillon Liquors.

The rules of bocce are relatively basic, and allow you to start playing within minutes. ?
Bocce is played with eight large balls and one smaller ball (called the pallino).
The game can be played with 2, 4, or 8 players.
Divide the two colors of bocce balls evenly between the number of players.
At random, choose a player to throw the pallino. After the pallino is thrown, the same player throws his first bocce ball. The purpose of the game is to get your bocce balls as close as possible to the pallino.
After the first player has thrown his first bocce ball, he is considered "inside" because his ball is closer to the pallino than any of the competitor’s balls.
All other players are considered "outside." Whenever a player is considered "inside," he will forfeit his next turn throwing bocce balls.
All "outside" players take turns throwing their bocce balls until they get closer to the pallino than the "inside" player.
After all players have thrown their bocce balls, the player that is "inside" will be awarded points.
One point will be awarded to this player for every ball that is closer to the pallino than his closest competitor's ball. After the points are awarded, the frame is completed.
Start a new frame by electing a new person to throw the pallino and to throw the first bocce ball. A game is won when a player reaches 13 points. Play as many frames as necessary until a player reaches this point level. Of course, this point level can be be decreased or increased depending on time constraints between players.
