It is the jeu de choix for octogenarian French folk – so clearly a game for all ages.

Why we love it
It smacks of balmy evenings in the Jardin des Tuileries, and those boules make such a satisfying ‘clunk’ when you make a lucky strike. Don’t expect quite the same dignity with toddlers in charge.

The downside
A pétanque on your toe is a truly painful thing. 

Our favourite
Jaques Chrome Steel Boules Set  from John Lewis. 

Credit crunch option
Throwing rolled up socks of different colours at a target. The perfect renaissance for all those odd stray socks.
