Crofts Rule

Have you ever attended an event where one game seems to go on for ever and 90% of the players have to sit and wait for a slow game to grind on to its inevitable conclusion?

Yes – So have we. Today while waiting 40 minutes for a presentation ceremony and watching a game that wouldn’t affect anything crawling to a finish we invented the Croft rule.

It states that “When in a Petanque event you find your game is the last one on the terrain the next end is the last end.”

In real life it means that when you are the last game on the terrain everyone knows that the next end is the last end and they can redraw for teams and get on with life.

The corollary to this rules states that ” If the players don’t abide by this rule any super hero in the vicinity can shoot them all to hell.” This is optional.
