Mini-Boules in Melissa's Living Room

When winter hits in Michigan, the petanque playing doesn't stop - it just shrinks down to 1/3 scale and we play in our friend's homes! Wednesday night, twenty of us packed into Melissa's apartment and we played a series of doublettes, and triplette games amidst all of the festivity revelers. The surprising thing is that the mini-Boules (Mar-Boules) play pretty close to the actual sized boules... we were able to point, shoot even (I did a Tir-au-Fer!) - and of course the strategy is the same. I think, at the evening's conclusion - we had another 10 new converts!
