Tu tires ou tu pointes???

Pétanque, aka boules. More commonly played in the south of France. Two main ways to play it: rolling the ball, or shooting it. The goal is to get your ball closest to the cochonnet, the smaller ball.
It is a men's game for some reason, you rarely ever see women playing it. Maybe they have better things to do. A shame.

I've seen it in several French blogs, but it is not played here.
