Pétanque is a wormy adaptation scheme of the boules sport type named Pétanque. The gameplay is similar to Darts scheme.


  • Place your worms in the BOXES (Worm 1 - area #1, Worm 2 - area #2,...).
  • Using the rope and the pneumatic drill, try to get as near the JACK as possible (when you are on rope, choose the pneumatic drill, swing, touch the thick wall and press enter -> fly).
  • Never press the space when you are drilling.
  • After 5 turns, count your points (the worm which is nearest to the JACK acquires the count of points accorded to the number of players in the game and the worm which is furthest the JACK acquires 1 point).
  • The player with the maximum of the points wins.


  • You can select a playing worm (it's because of the fact, that the player playing earlier may be in an advantage).
  • When you do a cowish turn (you don't fly from the thick wall, don't use the pneumatic drill or press the space while drilling), you acquire the least of the points (1 point).


The original map release dates 7th August 2009 on WMDB. The map along with the scheme was uploaded by admi.
