edit History and Differences
It was developed in 1880 in Worcester, Massachusetts by a local bowling alley owner, Justin White, some years before either the standardization of the tenpin sport in 1895, and the invention of duckpin bowling . As in other forms of bowling, the players roll balls down a wooden pathway (known as a lane ) to knock down as many pins as possible. The main differences between candlepin bowling and the predominant ten-pin bowling style are that each player uses three balls per frame (see below), the balls are much smaller (4.5" diameter) and do not have holes, the fallen pins (known as 'wood') are not cleared away between balls during a player's turn, and the pins are thinner, and thus harder to knock down. Because of these differences, scoring points is considerably more difficult than in ten-pin bowling, and the highest officially sanctioned score ever recorded is 245 out of a possible 300 points Candlepin bowling balls are 4.5 inches in diameter.

Candlepin lanes in Massachusetts Comments There's no way to explain this to people outside of Mass. I have tried and people think your wicked weird. leo bendinelli on February 10, 2004 10:50 PM I have great memories of watching Candlepin Bowling every Saturday with my Gram. Remember Don Gillis? Shari on February 22, 2004 06:55 AM I thought Candlepin Bowling was invented in Whistah, not Boston cyndi on March 1, 2004 02:10 PM The first time I happened into a Candlepin bowling alley I thought there was something really wrong with the bowling alley. The bowling alley manager explained it to me, and I could not believe how much harder Candlepin bowling was than ten-pin bowling. I have since really gotten to like it. Oh, and yes, Candlepin was invented in Worcester by Justin White, try for a great history of Candlepin. Amanda on March 13, 2004 08:20 PM

Candlepin Bowling
New England has a unique tradition called Candlepin Bowling. Unlike traditional bowling, it involves the use of a small, light ball and candle-shaped pins. The bowler gets three tries at knocking the pins down, and can use the fallen pins to whack those pins that are still standing.
We first discovered the fun of candlepin bowling on vacation in Maine - and it was one of the first times that Tommy actually PLAYED a game without melting down or walking away. When we started vacationing on Cape Cod, we always made time for the game.
So... this fall, with some trepidation, we signed Tommy up for the junior league at a friendly local bowling alley. This is one of those situations in which we felt that Tom really OUGHT to be involved in a sport (just like everyone else). In part, I'm sure, this is a matter of peer pressure (pressure from OUR peers, not Tom's). But I'd tried Tom in team sports like soccer and baseball, and even when it was a "special" program, he found it very anxiety-producing. The need to track other players, follow their actions, and then jump in accordingly was, quite simply, too much.

Candlepin History Basics The great thing about candlepin bowling is that anyone can play and have fun! Our orange and green balls are only 4 inches in diameter, and weigh less than 4 pounds. The pins are always in play even after they fall down, and the bowler gets three chances to clear the deck as opposed to only two in ten-pin bowling. We use "traditional scoring", which means you get a pencil and a scoring sheet and keep track of the scores yourself - a great chance to brush up on your arithmetic skills! Bowling Fees To simplify things, we charge a flat rate of $25 per hour per lane.You can have up to 6 people bowling on one lane. If six people bowl for one hour, it only costs $4.20 each!

    Brian "Krow" Aker's Idle Thoughts - Candlepin Bowling?
    Page Summary
    Candlepin Bowling?
    One of the neat things I did this week was I went Candlepin bowling.
    Sheeri had first mentioned this to me at a conference last year and
    since then I have been interested in seeing what it was.
    You can read more details about it on Wikipedia but in short it is
    bowling played with a very small ball that you roll down the lane to
    hit pins with are more narrow and tapered at the top and the bottom.
    The ball fits in the palm of your hand and weighs a bit more then two
    pounds. The first game I did quite poorly but by the second game I
    got my score up to 92. The throw is entirely different and it takes a
    faster pitch to really knock down the pins.
    Since the pins are not swept after each throw you have to spend some time before rolling the ball to determine where the best spot to hit the pins is. Having pins left in the lane means you can consider ricochet in your strategy.

    candlepin bowling I had a paper route when I was 10 and I delivered the newspaper to a candlepin bowling alley. I had no idea there was another type of bowling and in addition to playing many video games I bowled there quite often. I would usually score in the 80's to 90's and would sometimes break 100. I don't remember what my highest score was, but I think it was around 121. I liked how you had to learn how to score your own card, instead of having it automated because it forced me to understand the game. I enjoyed watching the State Bowling Tournaments on TV to see if I could glean any pointers from how they bowled. It wasn't until I went to Utah for college that I discovered that no one in the Western United States knew what candlepin bowling was. After doing further research I found that while the New England area had both candlepin bowling and ten-pin (or duck-pin) bowling, no one else did. The International Candlepin Bowling Association web site has more details about how the game is played as well as a very complete list of rules and records.
