At Parkhurst Petanque in Johannesburg, we developed a new game called Petanque Pinball.

We started a mega game with 4 players in each team, each with 3 boules. When we started playing there were some stumps on the piste and we decided that if the boules touched a stump, then they would be out (the coch was allowed to touch it). This made for an exciting game where about a quarter of the boules are removed during the game. It also minimises the role of the shooter and so is great where there are beginners playing who don't see all their boules being shot out all the time.
We have done some redesigning here, and things are starting to look a bit more like 2013. The last change was back in 2005, and that was our 5th redesign. So here we are in the middle of our 6th change since 1996.
FInally there is a petanque-app for the android-users out there. And it is free. The perfect xmas-present perhaps?
We have set up a system that will publish 2 new postcards to twitter every day from petanque.org. It will not work forever of course, in only 2,5 years we will start with re-runs of cards we have already previously published on Twitter . We do have a lot of petanque-postcards here.
We have a very nice collection of postcards here on petanque.org, and all of them are about petanque of course. Currently we have more than 1750 postcards available for your enjoyment.
