Bowlliards is a cue game played on a Pool table, using 10 object balls plus 1 cue ball. Bowlliards uses the scoring concept of ten pin bowling, and can be played solo as a useful training game, or competitively against an opponent.
Bowlliards can be played solo as a very useful training game.
At the start of each "frame"the ten object balls are racked in a triangle with the front ball placed on the foot spot.The first player then breaks. After the break the player gets ball in hand and tries to pocket as many balls as possible until missing. This is considered the first innings of the frame, If there are still balls left on the table after the first attempt, the player gets another try.
Clearing all the balls on the first inning is called a strike, clearing the remaining balls on the second innings is called a spare. There are 10 frames per game.
If playing Bowlliards solo, the game object is to score the perfect score of 300 in 10 frames. When playing in competition, the game object is to score a higher point total in 10 frames than your opponent. For details on scoring see the scoring section for Ten-Pin Bowling.
