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.

I don't know. I haven't heard about that. All I heard is people say I wouldn't like it. I am still not rank 80. I just got to rank 74.

You said that the error message says some device is missing - can you recall what that device is?

Okay, this is Kaiko's husband typing. None of these options changed anything. The browser ad blocker has always been there before this issue began. We use AVG for anti virus and it is set to provide the option to allow content, and that was also the case before this issue. Microsoft Edge was attempted before and it gave the same issue. Nothing has changed in three months.

The issue is definitely at your end. Please examine and rectify.

Pogo Bowl just got 10 new ranks when it was Game of the Month in November of 2017. It will likely be a long while before more ranks are added.

Both challenges are in your latest Mix and Match Badge Album.

Click on BADGES at the top of the page.

Near the top left side of the next page, click "My Collection."

Scroll down on that page and open your Mix and Match Album # 9 and you will see the badge challenge.

Click on it and then click "Activate."

Pogo Bowl • Purchased Mix and Match badges

On 3/26/2108 I purchased the We Challenge Thee badge and the Dead Eye badge. I immediately activated the We Challenge Thee and have successfully completed it. The Dead Eye badge does not show up anywhere to activate it. Any ideas? Neither one show up in the challenges on the Pogo Bowl page now.

If the award pop up appeared and it shows a green check mark on the Daily Challenge when you use the Challenge tab below the game, you've won it. Doesn't matter what the Home Page says.
