Just been 10 pin bowling at bandar in Maadi - complete disaster - machine kept going wrong - we moved on 4 different lanes. :-(

Never again - every time we go it plays up, but today was the straw that broke........... :-(

We used to play 9 pin bowling at the Swiss club in Alex. It had a "manual reset" so nothing to go wrong. Loved it :)
9 pin = skittles in the UK - pins in a diamond and a smaller wooden ball:clap2:

none of this American teco-crap

last time i played was at a Village show, on grass, with Hay Bails at the end. Glorious days:cool:

I've played bar skittles - on a table with a ball on a piece of string - good fun.

I've also played Shove ha'penny on a slate table

Feel for you. We went there two weeks ago. Computer reset after I got a strike, and ignored my strike, then the lane went down and we had to move. Second lane had to be reset several times, again messing with the points...now, if you get a strike every second ball, o/k, but if you play like me that strike was kind of IMPORTANT!:eek:

Electonic scoring - mind you the bowling is supposed to be electronic as well
