CuBOULES at the Michigan Cuboules Club !
Never ones to sit on our hands, The MPC and DPC have searched the globe for obscure sports, and now we're playing CUBOULES. The sport of Cuboules originated in the hills of France where Les Boules Carrees have been played for decades. The sloped terrain didn't allow for regular (sphere) boules to remain in place, so cubed pieces of wood were used instead. Most of the rules for CuBoules are the same as Petanque except: You stand in a square (not a circle); You play to 16 points (that's 4 squared); If a CuBoule lands atop
another CuBoule (or the CubeCochon) it's an instant win for that match. As a sideline amusement for the Members of the Detroit and Michigan CuBOULES clubs, we also Square-Dance before and after each game.
We invite you to come down to our square-piste, to play CuBoules with a bunch of squares like us.
