Rules and Introduction



This is a three-game free sample for the Kindle book, Quiz Bowling: A Perfect 300 Game available for sale at Amazon.com.

Scoring: The game consists of four rounds. In the first round, there is no time limit, and each of the ten questions is worth five points each. In the second round, all answers are related to a single category and the ten questions are again worth five points each, but there is a 60-second time limit to answer all questions in the round. The third round is similar to the second. Again, there is a 60-second time limit, and the ten questions are worth five points each, but the answers are related by word structure and not by topic. The fourth round begins with five toss-up questions worth 10 points each. For each of the toss-up questions you answer correctly, you can earn up to twenty bonus points. (There are four bonus questions related to each of the toss-up topics, and each bonus question is worth five points.) A perfect game is worth 300 points: (1) 50 points for Round One, (2) 50 points for Round Two, (3) 50 points for Round Three, and, (4) 150 points for Round Four.
