Bownling on your nokia symbian mobile

What is Bownling?

Bowling is a game in which players attempt to score points by rolling a bowling ball along a flat surface either into objects called pins or to get close to a target ball. There are many forms of bowling, with one of the most recent being ten-pin bowling and the earliest dating back to ancient Egypt. Other places where bowling was first seen were ancient Finland and Yemen, and in 300 A.D. in Germany. The first standardized rules were established in New York City, on September 9, 1895. Today, bowling is enjoyed by 95 million people in more than ninety countries worldwide.

Installation.

To install this application you should synchronize the "GrandBowling.sis" application to your device.

Game scoring

It may seem to many of us that scoring a tenpin bowling game is about as difficult as hang gliding backwards but never fear! Below is a guide to how to score a game of tenpin bowling, including the meaning of the symbols used. By the way, a 300 (the highest score possible) is achieved by bowling twelve strikes in a row in one game. From the information below, you can work out how a 300 is achieved. Unfortunately, knowing how to score doesn't make it any easier to score 300.

First, let's look at a game of tenpin bowling:

The numbers in the top row are the frame number, the second row is the pins knocked down (pinfall) and the third row is the actual score. Now, let's look at what all of the "x"'s and "/"'s mean:
1. A Strike (X) is worth 10 pins plus the number of pins knocked down on the next two balls.
2. A Spare (/) is worth 10 pins plus the number of pins knocked down on the next ball (one ball only - not frame)
3. An Open Frame (one where not all pins are knocked down after both balls have been bowled) has no bonus score.
4. If a Strike is bowled on the first ball of the tenth frame, the bowler receives two extra balls.
5. If a Spare is bowled on the first two balls of the tenth frame, the bowler receives one extra ball.
6. There is a maximum of three balls in the tenth frame so the score in the tenth frame is simple totaled and added to the score from the ninth.
7. Note that the circle around the 7 in the sixth frame indicates a split. A split can also be denoted by the letter "s" as in the examples below.

Note that scoresheets can come in a variety of display formats, but they all mean the same thing.
