So far we have not had any rules for the forum. But now we have one. It is very simple, and it is the relatively unknown Norwegian "Kardemomme law"
In norwegian it goes like this:
"Du skal ikke plage andre, du skal være grei og snill. Og ellers kan du gjøre som du vil"
As none of you understood a word of this, luckily we have an english version as well:
“You shall not be mean to the others, you should be kind and nice, otherwise you can do what you want.”
Another translation ends up like this:
"Treat others as you want to be treated"
Postings that do not follow this rule are likely to be removed from the forum, and the person posting will have his balls removed!
(the last part is a joke..)
For some reason the worl championship in petanque is held in the buzzling metroloplis of Tahiti this year! So pack your swimwear and go there at once!
Finally petanque has found a new home, as a bar game! Althought it might take a few years befor the darts-boards get the boot and petanque moves in everywhere it has started to happen
The Financial times has finally understood that Petanque is the game of the future, with our long time friend Mike Pegg, International umpire. "It may not be the sunny south of France but even on a chilly Devon day, British fans are warming to the charms of pétanque"
This is a product we have mentioned earlier, just because it is sooooo French. A Tour de France petanque-set! This is more French than a baguette!
We stumbled across a petanque-game for the andoid-system. From the produces description:"Petanque in St Tropez is a 3D bowls game, as played on the mediterannean coast." We do not have an android-phone to test it on, perhaps one of you can help us out?
