Ten Pin Bowling

How to score*

A game consists of 10 frames. A maximum of two deliveries is made in each frame except in the 10th frame, when three deliveries are made if the player has scored a strike or a spare in that frame.

A strike is scored when all the pins are knocked down by the first ball rolled in a frame. It is marked with an X.  Because a strike earns 10 pins plus a bonus of all the pins knocked down by the next two balls, no figure is entered until the next two balls are rolled. A strike in the 10th frame earns two extra rolls.

A spare is scored when all pins are knocked down with two deliveries. It is marked with a /.  Because a spare earns 10 pins plus a bonus of all the pins knocked down by the next single ball, no score is entered until the first ball of the next frame is rolled.  A spare in the 10th frame earns one extra roll.
