HCG Pro Bowling Board Game

Enjoy the excitement of the professional bowling tour on your table top. Play an entire tournament or a single match between today’s top bowlers or dozens of all-time greats using dice, charts, and player cards.

 

Each bowler is rated based on his or her performance in a particular season. Today's top bowlers like Sean Rash and Jason Belmonte will reach match play more often and win more tournaments than lesser bowlers.

 

Bowlers are rated for strike%, one-pin conversion%, spare conversion%, and performance in qualifying play and match play.


Each tournament is rated for scoring difficulty.

 

Qualifying rounds are conducted using a quick-play format. Match play is conducted using a roll-by-roll format. This enables tournaments to be played swiftly.


The ratings of bowlers included in the all-time great bowlers sets are normalized to produce averages of today's bowlers.


The ratings of bowlers included in the past season sets will produce the averages of those eras. 

The following card sets are available:
