    Team Alchemical Bowling May Tournament


    When: Monday 05/19/2014 - 8pm est.
    Where: The bowling alley is located just outside the east gate of Luna.
    Length: 30 minutes - 1 hour
    Prizes: An assortment of items will be locked down. The bowlers of the three top teams can choose an item, first choice going to the top scorer of the winning team and on down.

    Two Person Teams: Pick yourself a bowling partner, a team name, and even matching outfits if you so desire.

    Description: Each bowler will have TEN attempts per game to try to knock down all SIX pins in their lane. Each bowler will bowl a THREE game set and the team with the highest combined total score wins. A tie will be decided by a one game bowl-off. (Note: the three game set rule is tentative)


    Game-play: The bowling will be done using alchemical symbol tiles and pins (carpet squares). The bowler steps onto a tile at the head of the lane (a roll) and is randomly transported to one of six on the other end, all with pins on them at the start of the game. When a bowler lands on a tile with a pin on it, the pin shall be removed. If a bowler lands on a tile where the pin has already been removed, it is a gutter ball. After each roll the bowler returns to the head of the lane and prepares to roll again until the game is completed.


    Scoring:
    Each pin within the game is worth ONE point.
    A STRIKE bonus of THREE points is awarded for successfully hitting the head pin on the FIRST attempt.
    A SPARE bonus of TWO points is awarded if a bowler knocks down all SIX pins in a game, plus ONE point per attempt they did not need to clear the lane.

    (Example) A bowler knocks down 5 pins using all 10 attempts without a strike.
    5(pin points)= 5 point game

    (Example) A bowler knocks down all 6 pins using 8 of 10 attempts without a strike.
    6(pin points)+2(spare bonus)+2(unused attempts)= 10 point game

    (Example) A bowler knocks down all 6 pins using 6 of 10 attempts and had a strike. PERFECT GAME!
    6(pin points)+3(strike bonus)+2(spare bonus)+4(unused attempts)= 15 point game

    Now to eat my waffle.

    It's thick =) If we had some to put out, it might draw Spelosty back to it where we could catch him!

    Thanks all for coming out to bowl, hope you had fun.
    A big thank you to Jasmynn McNuge and Uriah Heep. They do all the work.
    Congratulations Alice! Your champion plaque now rests amongst the other greats on the Bowler Wall of Fame.
    By the way, the TEAM bowling fell by the wayside... we played singles instead
