    269. I remember it because it was my birthday 3 years ago.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
    9/ X X X X X X X X 9/X
    20 50 80 110 140 170 200 229 249 269

    Best series ever was 668 scratch, different day.

    I've also got a 200 and a 600 patch from state tournaments a few years back and a Dutch 200 patch.

    State tournaments!!


    My highest score was 239, I think. I remember scoring my 2nd highest game on the same day......around 220. It was also my birthday, which made it all the more amazing. :)

    I think the gap between 170 and 200 is huge. A player who regularly bowls 140 on average can easily get 170, but the game has to go a certain way for you to get over a 200.

    My best game (not best score) was when I bowled 8 strikes. Yes, that's 8 strikes in one game, which was quite amazing for me. My score wasn't really on the board yet because I never bowled an 8 or a 9 or something in order for my score to be calculated. Anyway, I only scored around a 170 that game. What happened!!

    In the game where I scored 239, I got 5 strikes and just had a lot of spares, and got 239. It was weird, because I had so many strikes that one time, I thought it was going to be an all time high for me.

    That's why you have to have a 200 average to turn pro. Trivia - 140 is the blind score.

    Closing frames is good and all, but stringing them together is what really explodes scores. As you probably know, it's possible to put up a 200 game with only 1 strike. I'll take a clean game anyday.

    Do you have a custom equipment, or do you just use the what the house has?

    My high is 212 I believe and I have only 2 or 3 career 200 games. Wii Sports bowling is a different story though :p 269

    I don't bowl. :p

    When I was 10 or 11, I used to go with my dead-beat dad. I had an average of around 150-160. :cool: I have stopped bowling entirely since then, but on my 22nd birthday, my friends and I went bowling, and then I just bowled strike after strike like a machine. So right now, if I went bowling, I'd get anywhere between 110 to 200, depending on the game. :eek:

    Well, that depends...

    ...if we're talking about Wii Sports Bowling it's a 210 ;), but if we're talking about REAL bowling it's more like a 150.

    Yeah, I'm not much of a bowler...

    Growing up in the Mid-Atlantic, my family was into duckpin bowling, if anyone knows what that is. My average, back when I bowled, was around 115, and my high score was a 173. A really good duckpin bowler averages 125-140, and games over 180 are kinda rare. The best game I ever saw in person was a 240. 300 games are virtually unheard of in duckpins, but it has been done.

    I've only bowled tenpins a few times. The 2nd time out I bowled a 600 set, with two 200+ games and one game around 180. I thought it was easy. I don't think I ever bowled over 175 again in tenpins.:p

    In Wii Sports, my high is 242, and my rank is hovering around 1325.

    My best game ever is a 268 for regular bowling and a 299 for no-tap, although my average is 193.

    176.

    God I was a hero ... I was carrying a 134 average and, for that brief, Michelob Light infused moment, carried my team to a startling and rare victory.

    I miss bowling.

    I used to associate bowling with Al Bundy, so I didn't want to be associated with that sport, but now that thedude110 wants to do it, I'm in.

    i haven't been bowling in forever, and i really want to go again soon...but back on topic, my highest score was around 130 or so, in my bowling class at college.

    that was the best class ever. :p

    194.

    First 5 frames were strikes. Complete fluke. The last 5 frames were embarrasingly poor.

    My next highest score ever was 128. Yeah.

    Not sure but somewhere between 140-170 I think.

    Trouble is I always forget how to bowl, and by the time I remember my right wrist is screwed and the second game usually ends up being even worse. :(

    that is very close to me. best is 212 and only a few games over 200 in my career.

    but i just don't bowl enough to get really high scores. one day i'm gonna join a league though.

    it appears if i bowl on my birthday then i have a better chance of getting a personal best :p

    I bowl very infrequently, but enjoy it when I do. I'm not very good, and tend to bowl in the 130's or so. I've hit a 170-something once before, but don't remember the exact score.
