It’s over. Relax, not the game. Just the frame. Anytime the “LWB” leaves the court you simply start that frame over. Go pick up any thrown balls and the “LWB” and the person who originally threw the “LWB” starts again.
That frame is declared a tie and nobody scores a point.
Any part of the line is “in play.” Even if the “LWB” or any of your balls are barely touching the line on the outside of the court, that’s good and they are “in play.”
It works like this. Whoever scored points in the previous frame starts the next frame. Why? In theory it gives the other team a chance to go second, which should be an advantage. Emphasis on “should be.”It’s just our BocceNation.com custom of beginning each match. It’s kind of like billiards. Players from each team will roll a ball simultaneously, trying to get as close to the mid-point line as possible, without going past. Whoever is closest begins play. If both players roll past the mid-point then repeat the “roll off” until you have a winner.
Simple, just go and replace that throw with your proper colored ball, without moving any other balls. No harm, no foul – only a color issue. Just try not to make it a habit please.
