Word Bowl. In a Word Bowl the ten circles represent ten bowling pins. Your job is to spell words from the letters on the pins. You can spell more than two words but you can use each of the ten letters only one time. If you can spell one ten-letter word using all the letters on the pins, you have scored a strike, which gives you a total of twenty points, the highest possible score. If you can spell two words that use up all ten letters, you have scored a spare, which gives you a total of fifteen. If you don’t get a strike or spare, you get one point for each letter of the word or words you spell, for up to nine points.

SCORECARD
Words Points
Strike: assortment \begin{align*}(20\;\mathrm{points})\end{align*}
Spare: See below. \begin{align*}(15\;\mathrm{points})\end{align*}
Other word or words: (Up to \begin{align*}9\;\mathrm{points}\end{align*})
