Cinque Bowling is an indoor sport that was invented in 1909 by Thomas F. Ryan at the Toronto Bowling Club. It is a variation of the most popular, ten bowling game. Both 5 pin and bowling games are available in most pins in Canada.
In 5 pin bowling, the pins are 25% smaller than ten pins. The bowling ball is hand-sized, completely without holes and is easy to roll. At the end of the bowling alley, five pins are arranged in a V shape. The aim of the game is to roll the ball to the bottom of the track and knock all the pins down.
Points are awarded based on the hit pins. The central pin is worth five points, the two pins on both sides are worth three each, and the pins on the outside are the work of two each. Each player receives three attempts to knock down all five pins. Up to four people can play at one time and each player receives ten spins to get the highest possible score. The person with the highest score wins.
5 pin bowling was originally invented in response to complaints that the bowling bowling ball was too heavy. 5 pin bowling is very popular with children and is an easy introduction to bowling. A perfect bowling score is 450, which can be achieved by combining more than one hit. A strike occurs when the bowler knocks down all five pins with a bow, and this is worth 15 points. The next two balls of the subsequent frames are added to the strike score. Basically, they doubled in score.
If the player takes two balls to knock down all the pins, there is talk of an escort. The first bowl of the next frame or attempt is worth double. If the pitcher has two shots in a row, the first strike is worth 30 points, plus the score from the next attempt or frame. If a player has three hits in a row, this is called a turkey or triple. The bowler receives a score of 45 for the first hit.
A 5-pin bowling game is easy to learn and offers the opportunity for strategy. Physical strength is not as important as bowling. A strategic player can achieve greater success in this type of bowling.
