Effectively, there are three kinds of marks given in a score; a strike (all ten down in the first ball), a spare (all ten down by the second ball), and an open (one or more missed pins still standing after the second ball).

Henry VIII also famously banned bowling for all but the upper classes, because so many working men and soldiers were neglecting their trades.

In Germany the game of Kegel (Kegelspiel) expanded.

This consists of getting 12 strikes in a row in one game (one strike each in frames 1–9, all three possible strikes in the tenth frame), and is also known as a perfect game.

In 1934, British anthropologist Sir Flinders Petrie, along with a team of archaeologists, discovered various primitive bowling balls, bowling pins and other materials in the grave of a protodynastic Egyptian boy dating to 3200 BCE, very shortly before the reign of Narmer, one of the very first Egyptian pharaohs.

The bowler is allowed one shot at a new rack of ten pins if s/he fouled on the first roll of a frame, and if all ten pins are knocked down on this shot, it is scored as a spare.

Behind the foul line is an "approach" approximately 15 feet (5 m) long used to gain speed and leverage on the ball before delivering it.
