Even trickier if you score Candlepin, where you throw three balls.

One of those is correct.  careful handling strikes with spares  smiley

Playing Candlepin seems fun enough but the scoring is very different 



Almost similar to Duckpin (which is much easier to score) but you still throw three balls.

Do you get to play the wood in Duck Pin?  There is one Duck Pin alley in my state, but it's a little over an hour away.  I've been tempted to drive down there to try it out.

My Dad bowled. He also bowled duck pins. Then my parents curled, then lawn-bowled. The bowls are oval, with a bar through the centre that's wider at one end than the other, thus the ability to curl the ball to the target. You'll see the occasional lawn bowling club, but, I'm sure, fewer than there used to be.

There's plenty around here and they play indoors in the winter. Further north the green is often a crown green.

Another type of ‘bowling.’ Got a couple new lathe tools making this my new favorite time waster…

My niece is a college freshman this year and is a pretty damn good bowler. She finished 2nd in the high school nationals before the pandemic (as a sophomore). And best of all, she's very level headed about it, like a champ should be!

Candlepin Bowling originated in Worcester Massachusetts, the town where I grew up. When I was a kid you couldn't toss a bowling ball without hitting a candlepin lane. They were every where. Dozens of dedicated alleys, many bars had 2-4 lanes, some people had lanes in their homes, some businesses had lanes for their employees, and even my church had 6 lanes. Today there are very few. The last alley in Worcester closed a few years ago. There is one still operating in Webster Massachusetts. Even 10 pin is only a fraction of what it was in the 50's - 70's.
