Bowling

Score a bowling game.

Bowling is game where players roll a heavy ball to knock down pins arranged in a triangle. Write code to keep track of the score of a game of bowling.

Scoring Bowling

A game consists of 10 frames. A frame is composed of one or two balls thrown, with 10 pins standing at the start of the frame. There are three cases for the tabulation of a frame:

Here is a three-frame example:

Frame 1 Frame 2 Frame 3
X (strike) 5/ (spare) 9 0 (open frame)

Frame 1 is (10 + 5 + 5) = 20

Frame 2 is (5 + 5 + 9) = 19

Frame 3 is (9 + 0) = 9

This means the current running total is 48.

The 10th frame in the game is a special case. If the player throws a strike or a spare, then they get one extra throw called a fill ball. Fill balls exist to calculate the total of the 10th frame. Scoring a strike or spare on the fill ball does not give the player more fill balls. The total value of the 10th frame is the total number of pins knocked down.

For a 10th frame of X1/ (strike and a spare), the total value is 20.

For a 10th frame of XXX (three strikes), the total value is 30.

Requirements

Write code to keep track of the score of a game of bowling. It should support two operations:

Setup

Go through the setup instructions for JavaScript to install the necessary dependencies:

Making the Test Suite Pass

Execute the tests with:

1
jasmine <exercise-name>.spec.js

Replace <exercise-name> with the name of the current exercise. E.g., to test the Hello World exercise:

1
jasmine hello-world.spec.js

In many test suites all but the first test have been skipped.

Once you get a test passing, you can unskip the next one by changing xit to it.
