Although the tradition of this game is popular all across the Basque Country, some of their forms are disappearing over time. Goierri still shows love for this practice, especially in Zerain and Segura.
An expert player -bolari- will show you the keys of this traditional game and the basic technique to play and bump all the skittles down. As the tradition says, after playing a little bit and warming up, you must participate in a competition: it’s all about having fun, so don’t worry if you lose the game!
