How to Score - High Scoring String
This example string is to display how a "high scoring game" is scored. The intent is to display how double and triple strikes are scored. All though this is not a typical candlepin bowling string, it is very possible to score a game this high or even higher. There have been many instances of games exceeding 200. The Maine State record for the highest sting is currently held by Phil Bernatchez for the men with a 231 string and by Val Joy for the women with a 200 game.
