Bowls Puzzle

Eliminate all bowling balls.
The board shows a randomized setup. Up to 64 bowling balls are shown. Each one is partially covered with an intricate pattern. Click a ball, then click a second ball in the same row or column, but with a complementary pattern. Both balls disappear. You win if all balls have disappeared.

You can undo your first click (of any two) by clicking the same ball again.
All setups are solvable!
If you find the default variant too easy, try the other variants, which are increasingly difficulty because they use fewer and fewer types of balls.
You can reset the game to its original randomized layout by clicking the "reset" button.
If you would like to have another randomized setup than the one given, choose another challenge first, then select the current one again. The setup will be different.
This game was originally published as the Zillions games "Bowls" by the same author.
