Have you ever played bowling? If you play bowling for the first time, perhaps you will get confuse about its score regulation. Bowling has its own score system which you cannot find in other type of sports. If you want to have a perfect game, you have to get 12 strikes (strike is hitting those 10 pins in the same time) in a row. 9 strikes in 1 – 9 frame, and 3 strikes in 10 frame. If you cannot get a strike, you will have a chance for getting a spare (spare is hitting 10 pins in two occasions in one frame). By getting a strike or spare, you will have a bonus point which will be added at the end of the following frame.
