We just got word of a new petanque-game, for all of those of you with a PC. It's called "petank party", and looks quite unique...
The slogan is:"The craziest Petanque video game
in the universe lands on Earth this summer!
This summer is going to be hot! "
Featuring exploding boules (!), aliens, and so much other useless stuff that you will not believe it looks like it might be a lot of fun. And fortunately it also has a "classic" setting, so you can play regular petanque as well.
More info is on the petank party home page. When we get our hands on a copy of the game we'll post a review right here on petanque.org
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!

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?
