Ten contestants play this game at once. Before starting, they all pick a card each at random, numbered from one to ten. This tells the contestants which pin position they will take. The higher the number you pick, the further to the back of the group you are, with the ace being right at the front.
All the contestants are dressed as a giant bowling pins and have their legs tied together, to make standing upright harder. Once they're in position on the alley, a giant bowling ball is rolled down a ramp towards the contestants.
Any contestant that gets knocked over has lost the game, but anyone who manages to stay standing wins.
