Classic lawn bowling or traditional English skittles can both be played with this beautifully crafted solid hardwood game. The set contains 10 hardwood skittles or pins that are 9" tall and 3" wide and 3 solid hardwood balls that measure 3.25" in diameter. Play is simple, just arrange the skittles in either a triangle or diamond pattern and then 1 player tosses all 3 balls at the pins to knock them over. If the player gets all the pins down before using all 3 of his balls then the pins are set back up. This means a max of 30 points per player is possible if the player knocks all 10 pins down with each ball. You can play either a set number of rounds like bowling, or you can play to a set score in order to win. Fun for the entire family and plays well indoors or outside.

How To Play
Lawn bowling or English skittles can be played in various ways depending on where you live geographically. This is a very historic game. The instructions here are just a general guideline and we encourage you to make your own rules up or play the traditional ways. To begin, arrange the pins or skittles into a triangle or diamond shape. Each player gets to toss each of the 3 balls to try to knock down the pins. A max of 30 points can be reached per turn if the player knocks down all the pins with each of the 3 balls. You can play individually or in teams. The player with the highest score after a certain amount of rounds is the winner. Or you can choose to play where the winner is the first to reach a set number of points. Usually 50 or 100 for longer games.
