Duckpin bowling:

A different type of party

Duckpin bowling is a little known variation of the standard bowling game. The game utilizes a bowling ball that is about five inches in diameter and smaller bowling pins to match. Originated in Baltimore, this unique game has been around since 1900. As the game evolved over the years it gained popularity and even went on to become a favorite pastime of Babe Ruth.
