- This person continues to throw until they have the closest ball.
- Balls are thrown in this order until all balls are thrown.
- The blue player starts the second end by throwing the jack and first ball.
- Players score by having the closest ball to the jack and receives one point for each of their balls closer to the jack than the closest ball of their opponent’s.
- Scores are totaled at the end of each match, if tied a “single ball tie-breaker” will determine the winner.
