A strike gives you ten points and the score of the next two balls. So at a minimum it will give you ten points and best case thirty points.

There is a site for all bowling rules in the links section below. You throw the ball down the lane and hit as many pins as you can. if your foot crosses the black line at the beginning of the lane it is a foul and you get 0 points for that frame. If you get a Spare(/) then you get 10 points plus however many are scored in the first shot of the next frame. If you get a strike(X) it is 10 plus however many points you get total in the next frame, but, if you get 2 strikes in a row then it is 20 points plus however many you get in the frame after that. For example, if you get a strike in the 5th frame, a strike in the 6th frame, and 9 pins in the 7th frame. you will get 29 points for the 5th frame, 19 points for the 6th frame, and 9 points for the 7th frame.

Do you mean "strike"? A strike is worth 10 pins plus the pins on the next two deliveries. So, if a bowler gets a strike in the first frame we can't assign a score until he bowls again. If he gets a spare in the second frame (i.e., 10 pins on two balls), then he would get a score of 20 back in the first.

A turkey is three strikes in a row. In ten-pin bowling, this results in an increase in scoring for the initial strike to the maximum of 30 points (10 points plus 10 for each of the two succeeding balls thrown, which are strikes).
