A "turkey" or a "gobbler" consists of throwing strikes in three consecutive frames
A turkey is bowling lingo for three strikes in a row. Probably, the most famous score for amateur and professional bowlers alike. This is partly due to the fact it has an unusual name, and partly because even a beginner can get one. The term dates back to before the turn of the 20th century. In those years, scoring was much more difficult and to get three strikes in a row was quite an achievement. During Thanksgiving or Christmas week, the proprietor would present a live turkey to the first person on each team who scored three consecutive strikes.

In bowling, 'scratch' means without the handicap added in. A scratch game is the actual score of the game, whereas a handicap game is the scratch game and the handicap added together. So 'high game scratch' would be the highest game a person in the league or tournament bowled without adding in the handicap. For example, someone with a 12 handicap bowls a 249. The 'scratch' score is 249, the handicap score is 261.
There is a very high number of bowling rules, for a list of these rules one can visit the Unites States Bowling Congress website and locate the rules there. Bowl.com is the name of the website.

Tenpin bowling is played all over the world. It is most popular in the US and UK, but is very popular in Asian countries as well. It is the most popular indoor sport in the world.
