What is boules?

The game of boules is fun.....fabulous.....french and is otherwise know as petanque. If you've ever been to France I'm sure you've seen little groups of people gathered on patches of dirt ( the local bouladrome) playing boules. Boules is similar to English Bowls, but is played with metal balls ( boules) and a jack ( called the cochonnet) and is played on a patch of gravel and sand rather than grass. There is also no dress code.
