Jack Balls

Author:  Polecat blog

A rough and tumble takeoff of "boulles".
Each player gets 2 balls of a unique color or marking.
Croquet balls or painted golf balls work nicely but use your imagination, pinecones, rocks or shoes might do.
The winner of the previous game tosses a white target ball out from where the last game ended.
The scouts try to put their ball as close as possible to the target.
The previous winner gets the privilege of throwing the last ball.
There are no out of bounds, keep the rules simple, if scouts can put the target ball up a tree, in a hole or behind a stump it makes the game more interesting.
A short range game is more interesting than a long throw where chance determines the winner.
