Stagger the pins as if you were building a pyramid. One in the front, followed by two behind it, then three behind that, the four in the last row will complete your tenpins setup!

Standard palcement is as follows: (Triangle formation) 1 pin in front, then 2 in next row, then 3 in the next row, with 4 in the back row, totaling 10 pins. All sides of triangle shape will have 4 pins, with 1 pin directly in the center.
