Typical 300 ring (this one is awarded for a USBC-certified 300 game).

A perfect game is the highest score possible in a game of bowling, achieved by rolling a strike during every frame.<ref name="Bowling Terms">{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref> In bowling games that use 10 pins, such as ten-pin bowling, candlepin bowling, and duckpin bowling, the highest possible score is 300, achieved by bowling 12 strikes in a row in a single game: one strike in each of the first nine frames, and three more in the tenth frame. Because a strike counts as ten pins plus any pinfall in the next two balls, 30 points are possible in a given frame.

In five-pin bowling, the highest possible score is 450, as a strike is worth 15 pins. It is rare to bowl or witness one. The Canadian Five Pin Bowlers Association approves from 10 to 40 perfect games per year.
