The three games of bowling I am about to mention are wonderful, fun versions of the game. They are, as all variations of bowling are, in fact, similar to the basic, most commonly known version of ten-point bowling with which we are familiar. Nine tap bowling, or 3-6-9 bowling, or low ball bowling and more are all versions of the game you may really begin to enjoy on a regular basis. Perfect for family fun, check out some of these games for your self.
First I will discuss 9-pin bowling (otherwise called the “nine tap” version.) There are more ways to enjoy the sport of bowling that you probably know about, because it is such an old sport with a long history. The basic concept of the sport of bowling has been through a series of adaptation and evolution through the times, and, certain variations tend to settle the cultures of the people who play the game.
Nine-tap bowling is virtually identical to our favorite: basic ten pin bowling. Nonetheless there are two exceptions. A spare, or, the knocking over of nine pins counts as a strike, not a spare. The second exception is that some “splits,” without a head pin will count as a spare in certain pre-determined cases.
Another way of bowling is also popular with kids – but there is certainly no age limit on having fun! This is called the 3-6-9 bowling method. When you bowl a 3-6-9 game the setup is exactly the same as the regular, ten-point system. However, you automatically put strikes in the frames 3, 6, and 9. My dad used to play with us, letting us use the 3-6-9 rule, even though he would not. Letting kids win is fun sometimes, I suppose.
There is another form of bowling called Low-Ball Bowling, as well as a type of bowling called Beruit Bowling. These both are types of bowling that differ slightly from our most common methods, but that are nonetheless incredible fun. Do you love bowling for recreation? Try new types of bowling.
