How do you get that? I thought if you got all strikes you got 199 making that the highest score!

The highest possible score in a game of bowling is 300, which is only achievable by bowling all strikes. Bowling has a wacky scoring system which I have never bothered to figure out, but I'm sure you can find a website somewhere out there which explains it.
Thank you for reminding me that I need to play the bowling game we have and get my high score back!

there's like, when ever you get a strike you it adds the next score to your last one, and if the next is a strike, then you have to keep waiting until you either win or simply get less than a strike. i forget exactly how it works, but it does somehow. i learned it in Gym a couple years back, and it does have something to do with the adding last score onto new score somehow.

Yeah the high you can get is 300 in bowling.
Um yeah the bowling scoring system is weird, but I'll try to explain (I just started bowling in a league so I'm still not too sure how it works.)
When you get a spare(which is when you miss some pins on the first throw and get the rest on the next) you get ten points. Now you'll notice that when you look at the score under each frame there won't be a score where you just got the spare this is because on your next throw the # of pins you knock down will be added to the spare frame you just got.
ex: you get a spare in the 5th frame then in the 6th you knock down 7 on your first throw of the frame, the total of the 5th is 17, and lest say you get just one the next throw, the 6th frame score would be 8.
Now when you get a strike( when you knock down all the pins with one shot) you get ten, but just like the spare, you won't see a score under the frame you got the strike in right away. When you get a strike you get ten points then you add the next TWO shots that you get.
ex: you get strike in the 1st frame then strike in the 2nd and 3rd the score will finally pop up under the 1st frame will be thirty.
ex: you get a strike in the 1st and get a spare in the 2nd your score in the 1st will be 20
I'll even try to score a full game for you;
9th- 6- 3
I tryed to put the scores across the screen but it didn't come out right.

That was a pretty good explanation, you made it pretty simple for anyone to figure out. I used to bowl quite a bit and the scoring is actually pretty simple, just takes a couple games to get used to it.
