The object of the game is to slide your Ice Bocce Pucks closer to the Pick than the opposing team.
Playing Ice Bocce:
The game consists of 3 laps (down and back 3 times.) A frame starts with kicking the pick by a team member toward the opposite end of the lane. Each lane has a 6 inch deep hole on each end. The game (frame) is complete after the pucks have been slid and the points awarded.
Whoever wins the coin toss (using the Pick) will begin. If the pick is kicked out of the lane on the opening kick-off it will be re-kicked.
Once the pick is in position, the first team slides their puck, using the hole to push off of. Taking alternate turns, each team slides their pucks toward the pick to get their puck closest to the pick.
If the puck is not lying flat or has any part off of the lane it will be removed from play. If the puck goes in the hole it is in play regardless if it is lying flat or not.
In the event the pick is knocked out of play during the match, it will be dropped into the hole at the end of the lane being playing and the remaining pucks will aim closest to the hole.
If the pick is knocked out of play when a puck is already in the hole the puck will be picked up and the pick will be dropped in the hole. The puck should then be placed back in the hole the same way it was.
In each frame, only one team scores. One point is given for each puck that is closer to the pick than the opposing team’s pucks.
To break a tie ,“One End” (one time down the lane) will be played.
