B-Round Reinvents Toppling Pins for a Grass-Friendly Game

 - Feb 13, 2012
There are plenty of lawn and dirt-based ball games that involve knocking things over and navigating obstacles, but the indoor favorite has been readapted to become B-Round, a new type of bowling for out of doors.

François de Martrin-Donos first created a base for his precarious pins so that they could remain steady when set in place. He decided on the shape of a circle since, in your backyard, players need not be restricted to an alley approach.

Small divots for seven pins were molded into the stand, and another sneaky trick was also in integrated. The B-Round bowling pins take on a fresh candle-like shape and are secured into the base by means of elastic strings. If knocked over, one simply needs to press a button with his foot to tighten them back into upright positions.
