The pins are set in an equilateral triangle with the 7, 8, 9, and 10 pins spread out at the back end of the pin deck. All rows are numbered from left to right. Each row is centered across the lane. In front of the back row are the 4, 5, and 6 pins. In front of those, the 2 and 3 pins, and in front of those is the 1, or head, pin. The triangle is 3 feet from front to back and from left to right in the back row. The pins are 12 inches from one another equally.

Hi David,

One day I will try to record a game of WII Bowling. The thing is, it has to be a day when I am not running the AC and when I can get someone that will let me record them.

I can not start the game etc by myself. I need sighted help for that. I also can not play the game as well without sighted help. I do ok with throwing my first ball trying for a strike. But then I need someone to tell me which pins are left so that I can try to pick up the spare. I also need someone to tell me what my score is and which frame we are in. So it is a very fun game to play with a bit of sighted help. You still need to swing your arm, crank your wrist and release the ball in a consistent manor. Well I do often not crank my wrist so as to throw the ball straight at a pin for a spare. It also helps that I remember the location of the pins so that they can just give me the number of the pin that is left standing.

Just in case you do not know the set up of the pins, here they are.

7 8 9 0
4 5 6
 2 3
  1

I used 0 for ten just to keep the spacing. For the strike ball a right hander wants to hit the 1 and three pin equally. A left hander the 1 and 2 pin. The 7 is the far left back pin. the 10 the far back right pin on the lane. The 1 and 5 pin behind the 1 pin are in the center of the lane.

TGIF and BFN

My favorite color is red, black and chrome.
