About This Quiz

You can trace bowling history all the way back to Ancient Egypt, which makes it one of the oldest games in the world. We're talking evidence from 3,200 B.C. Safe to say they probably didn't have that little hand blower next to their lanes back then. Even though it's never achieved the heights of football or basketball, it's still a very popular game played by literally tens of millions of people every year. So what's the appeal? 

Well, unlike many games, it doesn't require you to be in peak physical condition to not only play but excel at the game. It's very leisurely, it works at your pace, and you can even play it all alone. It's a perfect game for people who don't need all the strict rules and structure of team sports but who want a challenge that still requires skill and discipline.

Bowling is by no means an easy game to master, but some of us do pretty well. Maybe you do pretty well yourself. Why not answer a few questions about yourself and your game, and we'll guess just how good you are and what your all-time best score is? Just spare us a minute - worst case scenario we hit the gutter.
