Elf Bowling: Bocce Style is the fifth game in the Elf Bowling series. In this one, you play an European game called bocce. In the game a random player sends the jack, also called a pallino or boccino, represented here by a penguin, down the lane by setting him in the lane left to right with the mouse, and then aiming the candy cane by moving the mouse up or down. When the green "power indicator" arrows are where you want, press the mouse button to kick. You must get the penguin beyond the blue line but not all the way to the back of the lane. Next, the player that got the penguin into the designated area sends an elf down the lane, trying to get as close to the penguin as possible. Now the other player sends an elf down the lane. Whichever player is now closer to the penguin in "in", the other player is "out". The player that is "in" keeps sending elves until they send four or one they sent is not closer than the opponents. The player whose elf is closest to the penguin, wins the round and gets points for all elves that are closer to the penguin the the opponents closest elf.
Play continues, round after round, until one player reaches the winning score, which can be set to four, seven or twelve points. In addition to selecting one player versus the computer or two player, you can play as Santa, Dingle Kringle, Mrs. Kringle or Ellyfay Elf. You can play at the North Pole Sleighport, an iceberg, Santa's Toy Factory or Elf Village.
