The Maltese Bocci games we saw employed a 'cylindrical' Roller. What are the dimensions, weight, material of these Rollers? They seem to fly in a very erratic manner do they have a deliberate weight imbalance?
How do the Rollers point score? Are the Rollers used optionally in any game and at any time (within a turn)? Does each team would have the statutory 4 balls, plus, optionally how many Rollers? We've seen two rollers per team on occasions. Perhaps a roller being used in the turn of a ball or in addition to?
Do the Rollers have to leave the hand in a horizontal cylindrical fashion or in any manner, even end-over-end?
