Scoring occurs at the end of each round and only the team with their ball closest to the pallino earns points; one point for each ball that is closer to the pallino than the closest ball of the opposing team, two points if a ball touches the pallino. If both teams’ balls are the same distance from the pallino, no points are won. The game continues until one team reaches a set point total.
By the way, the game is bocce, never “bocce ball.”
