View Full Version : I went bowling today! I got 290!

Ok, by 290, I mean my total combined score of all three games. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/redface.gif
It was a work thing, we all went, and I have to shake my head in disgust at my pitiful effort.
When I was first told about it, I told the head Chef as a joke that I was the Under 18's State Champion, and he believed me, and he told everyone that I was awesome, and so when I got up there and guttered it almost every time it was a big let down to my work mates.
Still, we had fun. ;) And I did fluke one strike. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/jumper.gif
Is anyone much of a bowling champ? http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/privateeye.gif I need tips for the next time. :(

Hi Andromeda http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

I've only bowled once and it was a disaster. Your score is not bad ( even givin the fact that it's a combination of 3 ). http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

Have you ever played the online game 'Gutterball'? It's quite entertaining because you are insulted if you don't do well. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

Good work And'
Prolly better than I could do http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/redface.gif
I used to do bowling as a "Saturday sport" when I was young and energetic. Can't remember if I was good or not, I think O won a tiny plastic trophy as a consolation prize ;)

Grant: Dont worry, I only ever got those black participation ribbons in the events I went in at school. :( Consolation is one step above participation. ;)

i love bowling though i suck at it...
i usually throw gutter-balls at the beginning off the session. my excuse: "I'm warming up." And i'll spend about 4-6 games 'warming up". my score would average about 40-60.
after tht the strikes and spares start coming my way and usually end up in the 90s...yet to breach 100 pts but someday...after sufficient warming up...maybe...

Hi Andromeda http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

Here is a link to the game. You can play the online version or try the free demo. The demo version is much better :D Enjoy http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif
