Games are played one-on-one or with two teams of two people. All members play from the
same side of the board and remain there for the duration of the game. Games are played for 10
“frames” at which time the individual or team with the most points is declared the winner.
The game can be played following "Short Foul Line" Rules (which is most commonly used) or "Long Foul Line" Rules (rarely used).
Following "Short Foul Line" Rules, the pucks are considered in-play when they are on the board and past the foul line closest to the shooter.
Following "Long Foul Line" Rules, the pucks are considered in-play when they are on the board and past the foul line on the opposite end of the board as the shooter.
How to Play
The initial startup for shooting and puck color are decided by the opponent players flipping a
coin (one flips, other calls heads or tails). The winner of the flip may elect to choose to shoot
first or second; if playing teams you can select to shoot 1st/3rd or 2nd/4th. When color and
shooting order are decided, the fun begins!
Using the provided triangle, set up the pin formation near the back of the opposite end of the
board. The player designated to shoot first will throw all four pucks, one at a time, in an
attempt to knock down all 10 bowling pins. At the end of the player’s four throws they will
count how many pins were knocked down to determine their score. Players continue to
alternate shooting until all 10 frames have been completed and a winner is declared!
Before a player shoots, the player can dust the board if dry spots are showing.
Shooters must have one foot behind the playing surface while they are shooting.
Hitting or shaking the table is never allowed.
