Let's Go Bowling

Here's a little experiment in scoring random bowling games. Each throw consists of a random number between 0 and the number of pins remaining. This is not even remotely close to modeling the actual physical aspect of knocking pins down, but nevertheless I was curious how a point distribution may look.

A side goal of this experiment was to be more pragmatic in my coding. I've written bowling scoring logic dozens of times, each an attempt at making the code clearer and more readable. I decided to throw all of that out the window and just get it done(TM).
