Reviewed by:

Coax the kids to turn off the TV and play outside with promises of backyard bowling.

Birilli, played with nine wooden pins, is very similar to bowling but is played on green turf, not hard maple alleys. Unlike bowling, Birilli has an extra-tall centerpin and taking it down earns extra points for the player.

This handcrafted set includes nine pins, two lacquered wooden balls and playing instructions.

  • Birilli Set, #762682, is $69 (March 2006).
