1. The single pin knock down – knock over one pin, and you score the number on that pin.
2. The multiple pins knockdown – knock over several pins in one throw, you score ONE POINT for each pin knocked down. Once again, it's one point per pin knocked over – you do not add the numbers on the pins! E.g; if you knock down the 5 and 3, your score is just two points – not eight points!
*no lazy pins*
A pin must lie completely flat to be considered knocked down – that lazy pin leaning on one of its mates doesn't count! For example in this image two pins have been hit and are no longer fully upright, but only the 8 pin is lying flat, so the score is eight. Whereas, if the 3 pin was also lying flat, the score would be two. These "lazy pins" simply get stood up again for the next throw.
A game can only be won by reaching exactly 50 points. If a player/team accidentally goes above 50 points, their score drops all the way back down to 25 points. For example;
If a player is on 45 points, and is trying to hit the 5 pin to reach 50, but instead actually hits the nearby 6 pin, their score would become 51, thereby busting 50 and bringing their score back down to 25.
