You don't know (yet) if you'll like this game, or you need a bunch of boules for family & friends, then these are the way to go.
To keep life simple, all sets come with 3 plain boules, and 3 with circles. There's no need for each player to have his/her own design: one team uses the plain ones, the other team the circled ones.
6 chrome plated steel boules, in a zippered case + 2 red wooden target balls + a measuring string. Boules are approx. 73 mm, approx 720 grams.
The chrome will wear off over time, but that does not affect play.Note:
some stores sell 6-sets with 3 pairs of 2 boules. That doesn't work well ...
Two sets fit in a Flat Rate Priority Mail carton at $11.95 within the 50 states, but exceed the 20 lbs weight limit for shipment outside the USA.
