The Sims 2: NightlifeEdit
Bowling alleys are objects introduced in The Sims 2: Nightlife. Sims can play solo or in groups. They may bowl autonomously, and may autonomously join a group. Sims with higher body skill bowl better. Bowling builds body skill. If The Sims 2: Freetime is installed, it also raises enthusiasm for the Games hobby. In practice, however, the length of a bowling alley tends to make bowling a community lot activity.
During a game, a Sim will bowl 10 times, matching the standard 10 frames of a real-life game. Sims who are waiting to bowl will use any nearby chairs, and will socialize while waiting their turn.

Bowling returned in The Sims 4: Bowling Night Stuff. Bowling alleys can be used by children, teens, young adults, adults and elders. Bowling is a new 5 level skill in the stuff pack, its ideal emotion is focused. When children use the bowling alley, gutter bumpers are automatically enabled. Moonlight bowling is also available in the pack after hours, illuminating the entire bowling alley in bright and flashing cyan/blue colors. However this is purely cosmetic and has no additional gameplay.
Getting a strike will give Sims the playful emotion. However, Sims will become angry if they get too many gutter balls. An extremely rare feat, known as a perfect llama, is achieved when a sim bowls ten consecutive strikes in a single game. A perfect llama is also a new in-game achievement, worth 125 points (the most of any other achievement in The Sims 4), and gains the sim access to a new trophy in build mode.
