In bowling, how many consecutive strikes are needed to achieve a perfect game of 300?

# 12 [Twelve]

Answer: A game of bowling consists of 10 frames, in which a bowler has two chances per frame to knock down all ten pins. The highest possible score in a single game is 300, achieved by bowling 12 strikes in a row in a single game: one strike in each of the first nine frames, and three more in the tenth frame. Because a strike counts as ten pins plus any pinfall in the next two balls, 30 points are possible in a given frame. Bowling’s perfect score, a 300 game, represents 12 strikes in a row–a total of 120 pins knocked down.

Bowling refers to a series of sports or leisure activities in which a player rolls or throws a bowling ball towards a target. It is one of the major forms of throwing sports. In pin bowling variations, the target is usually to knock over pins at the end of a lane. When all the pins are knocked down on the first roll, this is a strike. In target variations, the aim is usually to get the ball as close to a mark as possible.
