The aim of this game is to score as many points as possible by knocking down the pins. Each player plays 10 frames - in the two player version the players take it in turns to play a frame. For each frame the 10 pins are set up in a triangular configuration at the end of the bowling lane, and the player(s) has two balls with which he attempts to knock them down. One point is awarded for each pin knocked down. If all 10 pins are knocked down with one ball the player scores a STRIKE. If it takes two balls to knock down the pins, then a SPARE is scored. Bonus points are awarded for both a STRIKE and a SPARE.
