                                Bowl, Spell and Score Rules

Object:  To roll the bowling dice ball to reveal a letter, number or                            symbol  to determine the amount of letter tiles to flip over               in attempt to spell a word to score points.
                                                                                                                                                   
Contents: 1 wooden character bowling dice ball
                 100 bowling letter pin tiles
                  1 score pad
                  1 rule sheet

ages 8 to adult
2 to 4 bowlers or play up to four teams

Setup:   Write all players names on the score pad. Place ten pin tiles                     face down to match the diagram of the bowling pin setup. 
             Place all remaining tiles face down in the box top.                                     Tiles may be stack on each other but must be face down.

Play:   First player takes the dice ball and must shake in his/her palm
           then roll the dice ball on the table. (Place a cloth on the table        
           if its a glass table.) Do not roll the dice ball at the pins.......
           Each player gets one roll of the dice ball unless they roll a  2x            or a frown face. (see below).

            If a letter appears on the roll then the player must flip        
            over four tiles and combine them with the letter on the
            dice ball to spell a word containing at least three letters
            and the word must contain the letter on the dice. If a word                 is made then record the score under the players frame on                    the score pad. The values of each letter is shown on the                         tiles. The value of each letter on the dice ball is worth one                   point.

           If a number appears on the roll then the player must flip over                that amount of tiles and try to spell one or more words that                contain three letters or more.

            If the lucky symbol appears on the roll then the player must
            flip over the tiles in the 1, 7, and 10 position and then choose
            any letter verbally from the alphabet to try to make a word.    
            If the three tiles the player turns over already spells a word                  then the player still can choose a letter to make the word                   bigger and gain an extra point. The letter verbally chosen
            only has one point value.


            If the split symbol (•│•) appears on the roll then the player                         must flip over all the pin tiles except the two tiles in the 7 and                    10 position. This is a 7 and 10 split just like in bowling.     

          If the frown face symbol appears on the roll(this is a gutter ball)                 and that player must roll again but if another frown face appears               then his turn is over and that player gets a 0 for that frame. 

         If the 2x symbol appears on the roll then that player has a chance            to double their points on their next roll. The player must roll the                dice ball again and will get double points for any words spell on          that turn. *But if the frown face symbol appears then the double               point opportunity is cancelled out but the player still gets to roll                  roll again.     

         *The letter O on the dice ball should not be mistaken for number               0 .There is no number 0 on the dice ball.                                                                                                                                                             Letters: After each player spells a word the letters used in the word are                discarded from the game and new letters are taken from the box              to fill in the empty spots in the bowling pin tile diagram. When a                player is unable to spell a word then the letters are flip back                      over in its original place. If letter tiles run out return and shuffle                the discarded tiles back in the box face down.   

Wild Letters: Wild letters can be used as any letter and the point value                           is on each wild letter.               

 Words: Legal words must consist of three letters or more of the same                  language. No names, abbreviations or slang words not found                    in a dictionary are allow. Each player will get no more than three                minutes to spell a word after selecting the letters tiles.

Game over: The game is over after the last player rolls the dice ball                             in the tenth frame.  Players only roll once in all frames                               except when rolling a 2x or frown face.                                                                                                                                                        Winner:   The player that has the highest total points wins the game.
