The rolling-hit is generally considered a bit of a cheat, but as long as it works , do it. You aim at the opponents boule, and try to land a bit in front of it to make your boule roll into it and knock it away.

The shot suffers from the same weaknesses at the other rolling-shots, if the ground is uneven there is a high risk that the boule will loose it's original path and and up somewhere completely else. There is also the risk of hittig a small rock or a bit of soft ground and your shot is spoiled. If the ground is uneven the carreau is THE way of doing this.
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.
The world wide petanque and boule community, by and for users.
