The scoring system in the game
For each handled pin you get one point.
On a spare and a strike, you get an extra score as follows.
Spare - earns an addition that includes the number of pins knocked down in the next shot after this game, i.e. doubles it.
Strike - earns extra points which includes the number of pins knocked down in the next two shots after this frame.
For example, if in the two shots after the strike 5 and 3 pins were knocked down respectively, then the player will win 10 points for the strike, 8 for the two shots and another 8 bonus points - a total of 26 points

"There were no paved roads for hiking. Those who wanted to hike had to cross the sands to the seashore, or take the rickety, dusty and hot "road" to the German colony of Sharon. A place where one could find a bottle of beer in a cozy little inn as well as hearty food, also a track for the cone game was in Sarona, and the German consul would often invite me to visit this game place."
