The Ultimate in Backyard Bowling

SET-UP

-       18 Feet is the distance from where you throw the bags to the front edge of the game.

-       When setting up pins, red strip must be on top for magnets to work. Back of board should be at least 6 inches from wall. 

GAMEPLAY

  1. Bags are to be thrown underhand from behind foul line. (the front of the board)
  2. Begin with two players from Team A and two players from Team B. 
  3. 3 bags are thrown per frame. Team A player 1 throws two frames per turn. Next, team A player 2 throws two frames per turn.  Then team B player 1 throws 2 frames.  Finally, team B player 2 throws their two frames. Repeat until all 10 frames are completed by each team. 
  4. Teams will alternate setting up the pins & keeping score.  For example: While team A players are throwing, team B players will reset the pins & keep score. This keeps the game moving along. 
  5. Once all ten frames are complete from players 1&2 on each team, then the remaining two players (3&4) from each team will begin(step 3).

TEN X

If you get all of the pins down in 3 bags: you score a 10. For paper scoring write an X in the box. You do not get any extra points for a 10.

SPARE

If you get all the pins down in 2 bags: you score a spare. For paper scoring, shade a triangle in the box. This completes your turn. On your next turn, toss 3 bags as usual. Enter the number of pins you knocked down on your first toss. Do not reset pins yet! Toss 2 more bags and add these pins to your first toss then enter the total on the next frame. This completes two frames (or turns).

STRIKE

Enter the number of pins you knocked down on your first 2 tosses. Do not reset pins yet! Toss 1 more bag and add these pins to your first two tosses then enter the total. This completes two frames (or turns).
