Draw lots in order to
determine which team will throw the Mollet first. Before that a circle of 50 cm in
diameter should be drawn. Each player must step inside that circle when ready to play. The player has three tries to
throw the Mollet to a distance between 6 and
If unable to do so, the other team will then begin play.
game Begins: Having both feet
inside the circle, the Pointeur (Roller) of team A
whohas just rolled the Mollet rolls the
Mollette to be as close as possible to the Mollet. The player’s feet cannot
leave the circle until the Mollette has touched the ground.
Then it is team B’s
turn to do better by placing the Mollette closer to the Mollet. If successful,
team A plays next.
At the end of each
round, points need to be counted. The team whose Mollettes are closer to the
Mollet scores points.
If a team has three
Mollettes closer to the Mollet it scores three points.
If it has only one
Mollette closer, it only scores one point. To start
the next round, the team who won the last round gets to throw the Mollet.
The first team to reach 11 Points wins that game. Then a second game can
be played and a third game if necessary to determine the overall Winner.
