Pogo™ Bowl provides a simple but powerful interface to make your shots. Start out by moving the mouse left or right to get the ball into the desired position. Once you have the ball where you want it, click on the ball to set the position. While holding the mouse button down, drag the mouse up into the lane area - you will notice a pointer being drawn as you do this. Move the pointer to the desired location and release the mouse button to initiate the throw. The faster you move the mouse and release the mouse button, the faster your throw will be. If you pause before throwing, the pointer will "cool" down (denoted by the change in color from red to yellow) and your throw will be slower.

You can bowl a maximum of two balls per frame from frames 1-9, and a maximum of three balls on the 10th frame. The following results are possible:
  • If you knock down all of the pins on your first throw, you get a Strike. A Strike is worth 10 points plus whatever you bowl on your next two throws.
  • If you knock down some (or none) of the pins on your first throw and knock down the remaining pins on the next throw, you get a Spare. A Spare is worth 10 points plus whatever you bowl on your next throw.
  • If you knock down some (or none) of the pins on your first throw and are unable to knock down the remaining pins on the next throw, you are considered to have bowled an "open" frame. Bowling an open frame hurts your ability to get high scores, but you can usually recover by bowling Strikes and Spares.

On the 10th frame (and only on the 10th frame), it is possible to throw three balls instead of two. If you Strike on your first throw, you will get two more throws; or, if you Spare on your second throw, you will get one more throw. The maximum score you can reach in one game (also known as a "Perfect" game) is 300 points. At the end of each game, the number of pins you knock down is converted into Tokens at a 1:1 ratio. On top of this, you can earn more Tokens for knocking down bonus pins or winning the Strike it Rich bonus. You can read more about these in the other sections of the help file.

Here are some additional pointers designed to help you become a more advanced Pogo™ Bowl player.

To get consistent scores, try to find a shot that knocks down most or all of the pins each time you throw the ball. If you can recreate a good shot, your chances of getting a high score are very good. You can also help yourself by leaving simple spares. Complicated spares occur when the ball "gets away" from you. It's almost impossible to avoid these moments, but try to keep them to a minimum if you can.

Although you do not have to apply spin to bowl well, Pogo™ Bowl simulates part of real-life Bowling by allowing you to add spin to your shot. However, unlike real Bowling, you can impart spin on the ball at any time after you've thrown the ball (but before it impacts with the pins).

Once you have released the ball, you can click and hold the left or right mouse buttons to add spin to the ball. The left mouse button imparts left spin (which makes the ball eventually curve to the left) while the right mouse button imparts right spin (which makes the ball eventually curve to the right). Depending on the speed of the ball, the spin may take effect sooner or later and may be more or less exaggerated - you'll have to experiment with the direction and speed of your shots as well as the amount of spin to perfect your throws, but it can help you get more pin "action" on impact or, even more importantly, alter the path of a poorly thrown ball.

Pogo Bowl • Re: Can't Chat In Pogo Bowl-merged topic

Chat is working.
Are you using the Firefox browser?
If so, that's a common problem with the Firefox browser and it could happen in any game.

Look above the chat box, directly above the word SEND, and you will see an arrow. Click on that arrow until you can't click anymore. That will bring your chat back into view.

You could also place your mouse pointer in the scroll box, click once, and pull the black bar down until it reaches the bottom.

When you play in Non Club Member rooms you will get an intermission while non Club members view ads.

You can avoid that by playing in Club Member Only rooms.

Pogo Bowl • Game problem just now

By stormbolt7l » June 11th, 2018, 3:57 pm

Hello;

Hoping this gets to proper attention.

I could hear normal action in back ground.
When count finished.
It had me at frame 7.
Frame 6 having been lost to time out count.

Not sure large issue.
Yet still wanted to mention it

Your rank can be found by clicking on your screen name and then profile in the Who's Here list.

You can also see your current rank and how close to the next rank you are in the middle of the game by clicking on the rank icon at the top right.

You can also see your current rank and how close you are to the next rank at the end of the game by looking below the scoreboard.

Oh my gosh! I'm so glad people are posting about this! Folks are coming back at me in the room like I'm rude because I can't thank them. Please, Pogo - I know this is on your low list of priorities because it's not an HTML game, but please fix it.

Pogo Bowl • Re: pogo tour on my league

By Mod_Aby » June 3rd, 2018, 11:07 pm

My League Tournaments are handled by the My League Sites. The best way to get in touch with My League Tournaments that Pogo members play in would be to do a web search for My League Tournaments on Pogo. That will give you the information you need.

When bowling for the past few days, the games freeze, and then I get removed from the game. This is very disruptive!

I never said there was a tab called Current Challenges in Pogo Bowl.

I said: Click on the Challenges tab underneath the game and look at the section called "Current Challenges In Pogo Bowl."

If there is a small green checkmark in the upper right corner of the daily challenge box, then you did get credit for the challenge.

Also know that you should not leave the game until after the jackpot spin.
