Puzzle N° 3

Last one before I leave for Provence.

What do you think this stone is used for?

I saw it at a club in Arlès, a few years ago.

To help you a little: there are 3 rows of indentations where the players put their boules.

But can you guess why?

    As there are 3 indentations in each row I think it’s where players leave their boules when not playing, possibly while they have a pastis or play a game of cards.

    • Hi Trish,

      You’ve obviously played in France if you associate cards and pastis with pétanque!

      A good guess but it’s used more after they’ve finished playing cards.

      Try again.

    For reserving your place in a queue to play.
    Seen similar at golf clubs by first tee.
