Bocce ball as my friends and I know it is a laid back outdoor drinking game. While this statement may offend serious experts and professionals in the sport, I believe that the entire philosophy surrounding the game, and this league, is one of relaxation and fun.
The original idea behind bocce goes back to Egypt circa 5000BC when the game was played with polished rocks. According to some, bocce is the oldest game known to mankind. The game, like everything else, was stolen from the Egyptians by the Greeks and then from the Greeks by the Romans who then coined the current name of Bocce from the Latin bottia, or boss.
It's pretty easy.
Basically, the essentials for bocce are: something to sit on, something to drink, something to listen to, and the bocce balls. You find a flattish place to set up camp, queue the perfect playlist, then start playing.
