Random Scores

Random scores are useful for testing and verifying the event policy and chart setup prior to running an event. You can also get an indication of how many rounds it is likely to take.

Setup

Random scores are controlled within Scoring policy available in the Settings sidebar. Enter a value that reflects the maximum score plus an optional modifier, "d" for draws, "s" for singles, e.g.:

  • 25 Scores no greater than 25. No draws will be generated.
  • 17d Scores no greater than 17. Draws may be generated in pool play.
  • 21s Winning scores is always 21, e.g. bowls singles 21-shot game.
  • 17d,11 Generates an additional 'ends' score for bowls pool play, e.g. 11 end games.

Specifying draws doesn't guarantee you will get any. You may have to enter them manually.
