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: Stalkers want our league room and tell us it is theirs

By Mod_Kyra » July 1st, 2015, 7:06 pm

Pogo doesn't sponsor leagues. Any member can use any room at any time. Any room assignments are strictly between league admins and league members and don't have to be honored by non league members. I've removed the names you posted; we don't permit accusations in Pogo's member forum.

If any member, league or not, violates Terms of Service in a game room, you'll need to use the in-game report system.

You may want to go through your league and see about a room reassignment.

Since we can't assist you here in forums, I'll lock this.

Pogo Bowl • Stalkers want our league room and tell us it is theirs

By jeffntricia » July 1st, 2015, 7:02 pm

We have a league in blocked lanes and there is a group of players on passes telling us this is their room. Right now the members can't get in the room to play. They other people sit there and don't play wanting us to give our league room up. We earned this room and have had it for 8 years. It's a nice league and has a lot of bowlers that have been in this league for years .. I have been in this league almost 5 years. We have all reported the people for stalking but nothing has happened. Please tell me what we can do other then just give in to them. They are going into Grandamas Teeth too and doing the same thing. I was in Grandmas Teeth the other day and saw some of the stalkers were there. A player said <removed by moderator> is mad at us because we don't kiss up to his friends. And I said is someone trying to take your room? They didn't answer but just a few minutes later <removed by moderator> came in and said : IS THERE A PROBLEM". Please help us we want to keep our league and league room together. This has been going on a month now.

Wow only 1 gold pin in 36 games, talk about a bad streak!

Didn't you try the "Silver pin strategy" above ?
Look in your badges and find one that asks to knock down SILVER pins and activate it at the same time, doesn't matter if you have already earned it.
You don't lose anything and well, IMO, it works, at least I have never had to play more than 8-10 games to get 1 Gold pin.

Pogo Bowl • Re: Gold pin games

By jim8165 » June 25th, 2015, 11:12 pm

When the badge is not Gold Pin I estimate you get one about 1 in 5 games.

Right now I am doing a Mix and Magic 15 Gold Pin in three weeks.

Right now I am in the middle of a miserable streak. I have not had a gold pin in 25 games and I have only had 1 gold pin in my last 36 games.

I have changed rooms, I have changed speeds and I have not missed one game in this series of misery. I play anywhere between 5 and 15 in a row then quit so its not a case of me missing the gold pin games while playing a session.

You won't have that problem if you play in Club Only rooms. Non Club members cannot play in Club Only rooms.
Club rooms are the rooms in the chat room list that have the letter P (in a circle) to the left of the name of the room.

If you wish to report the problem to customer support you can do that via the Help link at the top of your page.
This is a members forum and we cannot fix game issues.

Pogo Bowl • [Flash Games] Some users may experience difficulty loading

By Pogo_Cactuar » June 17th, 2015, 8:22 pm

Hello,

It appears that there have been several updates released both for Windows and many anti-virus software programs out there.

We have seen a trend of some users who aren't able to load our Flash games since these updates. It seems that the recent updates, especially to anti-virus software, have blocked computers from accessing all of our games.

If you aren't able to load our flash games, such as our Hidden Object Games or Mahjong Games, we recommend you visit: Answers HQ for a workaround to allow these games to load for you.

The game is working. Have you tried a different browser? Are you having this problem with other games? If so, which ones?

Are you playing in a fast room? If you choose a room rather than use the Start Game button, you can choose either Game Mode: Fast Rooms or Slow Rooms.
