Rules of Bowling

A game of bowling consists of ten frames. In each frame, the bowler has two chances to knock down as many pins as possible with the bowling ball. If a bowler is able to knock down all ten pins with the first ball, he is awarded a strike. If the bowler is able to knock down all 10 pins with the two balls of a frame, it is known as a spare and bonus points are awarded for both of these. If the bowler knocks down all 10 pins in the tenth frame, the bowler is allowed to throw 3 balls for that frame. A perfect game would have a maximum score of 300 points.


In general, one point is scored for each pin that is knocked over. When a player fails to knock down all ten pins after the second ball it is known as an open frame.
