How to Score
A game consists of 10 boxes, in which not more than 3 balls are allowed for each box.
If all pins are felled by first ball it is a strike and is marked with a double line.
If all pins are felled by first 2 balls it is a spare and marked with a single line
If all pins are felled by 3 balls it is a ten box and marked by an X.
A strike permits you to score ten plus a bonus of the pins felled by the 1st and 2nd balls of your next box.
A spare permits you to score ten plus a bonus of the pins felled by the 1st ball of your next box.
