In a Nutshell
(a very brief outline)
The object of the game is to score more points than your opponent by rolling a ‘wood’ or bowl, closest to the target, a small white or yellow ball called a jack.
The bowl (or “wood”) is machined to a different profile on each side to produce the bias which causes it to curve slightly as it rolls towards the jack.
The game is played with one to four players in a team.
Play starts at one end by placing a rubber mat on the centre line and casting the jack towards the other end whilst standing on the mat.
Each team bowls one ‘wood’ at a time whilst standing on the mat, taking turns, until all ‘woods’ have been played.
Points are awarded for each bowl closer to the jack than an opponents bowl.
