Real (wo)men play candlepin bowling. It's so hard that in the 127 years it's existed, no one has scored a perfect game. The current record is 245 points for a single string. Of course, it'll be hard to find a candlepin lane outside of New England, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Wyoming, Ohio. It's INCREDIBLY hard.
