In 1879, Justin White created the candlepin bowling game in Massachusetts when accidentally one of the tenpins of tenpin bowling turned out into a shape like a wooden stick, yet, it looked more similar to a candlestick from afar when you are going to score.

Why is candlepin bowling a good sport? The candlepin bowling game is different from the rest of other types of bowling games, from the shape of the pins to the weight and size of the ball. The balls’ maximum weight is 2.7 pounds(lbs) with no finger holes, and its sizes are 4 ½ inches(in). In which not only the adults would play this game, even the kids at your home can carry the ball and hit the candlepins, which stands 15 ¾ inches(in) with tapers on both ends which makes them look more like candles.

To score the game consists of ten boxes, in which not more than three balls are allowed for each box. If all pins are knocked down by the first ball it is a strike and is marked with two shade lines, one in the upper right part and one in the lower left part of the box. If all pins are knocked down by the second ball it is a spare and is marked with a shade line in the upper left part of the box. If all pins are knocked down by the third ball it is a ten box and is marked by an X. Besides, a strike permits you to score ten plus a bonus of the pins knocked down by the first and second balls on your next box. Moreover, a spare permits you to score ten plus a bonus of the pins felled by the first ball on your next box.
The candlepin bowling game consists of ten frames wherein the player can score by throwing the ball to sixty (60) foot bowling lanes to slide and hit the ten (10) candlepins to score and fill it into the first out of ten frames.
