Black billiards


        Bowling was originally called the nine-column play, also known as the ground ball which is the predecessor of modern bowling. It originated in Germany before the 4th century. It was a ritual used by Catholics to measure the religious beliefs of the believers. Place 9 pillars in the corridor of the church like a pagan and evil. The stone ball represents justice, and the believers believe that using stone balls to knock down wooden pillars can eliminate disasters and atonement for themselves. If you can't hit it, you should be more religious.


        Therefore, for the people at that time, it is not so much a game, but rather a serious religious ritual that presupposes one's own destiny. However, the ritual of "attacking the devil" is undeniably fascinating when it comes to reviewing. Also, people can feel the result it belongs to their self by their control.​
