What is Bowling?

The player rolls a ball to knock over as many pins as possible.

Ten-pin bowling is a sport in which a player rolls a bowling ball down a wooden lane with the objective of scoring points by knocking down as many pins as possible. You have two attempts to knock down 10 pins, and the total number you knock down is added to your score. You then have 10 opportunities to get as high a score as possible.
