Mixed Up Bowling
Sent in by: Maria of Breaux Bridge, LA

Gutter, spare, strike or ZOOMer?

This game is for 2 or more players and should be played outside or in an open area.

To play you need 12 soda bottles and two foam balls.

Players split up into two teams.

To make your playing field, stand the bottles up and arrange them into two bowling triangles, each with 6 pins. Each pin represents a player from the opposing team. When the ZOOMers played, there were two pins for every player.

The object of the game is to knock down the players (pins) from the other team. Teams take turns trying to do so. So, if both little Francescos are knocked down, then Francesco's out. Here's how it works:

Team 1 goes first. Player 1 from team 1 throws a foam ball at the pins.

Then team 2 goes. Player 1 from team 2 throws a foam ball at the pins.

Team 1 goes again. Player 2 from team 1 throws a foam ball at the pins.

Keep playing until every player from each team has gone.

The first team to knock down all the pins wins.
