Here's something that I have NEVER EVER SEEN in QB:

A bowling game!

So here's the skinny: I'm challenging you all to write a bowling game in QB! No coding limits whatsoever...use all the assembly and libs you want, any graphics mode, etc. But make a bowling game! I'll give till the end of January to make a bowling game, and I'll give a free domain name to the winner. So...anyone up for it?

(I was thinking about this tonight while standing in line at Wal-Mart, playing Bowling on my Nokia...lol)

I've never played to a bowling game. Can someone explain how is it? I mean, the game mechanics.

I don't really know how to play either, but you roll a somewhat heavy balll down the lane. You have to knock over i think 9 pins, in two throws. The more pins you knock over and the least amount of throws it takes gives your more points. The person with the highest score wins.

Plain old bowling is pretty boring, but not if you add some flair... Like, maybe if you launch a cannonball and see how many pins you can destroy!  :lol:


Anyway, here's a Flash game...

I meant in a videogame. You know, you can't throw a ball to the screen... Well, you can, but you shouldn't.
