Flick the pendulum and watch while the Shot Maker Machine determines the result of your 'shot'. There is a magnet under each possible answer and also one in the pendulum. You never know where it will land.
Possible answers are Strike (2 places), 9-spare, 8-spare, and 7 pin split. If you roll the 9-spare you would record your frame as first ball a nine and second ball made the spare. Similarly withe 8-spare. if you roll the 7 pin split, you must roll again. If it lands on one of the 2 spaces that have "spare" then you made the split. If not, you have an open 7 frame.
Keep score frame by frame on a manual score. We will provide some, but they are readily available on the internet. (search for "bowling scoring template")
This is a great item to take to the lanes on league night. Everyone puts down a small wager and flicks the machine after each frame of bowling. Winner at the end of the game gets the pot.
Note, this item can be personalized at no added cost. I make these to order, and you get to name the Lanes. The pictured one shows "Spring Hill Lanes" as that is where we bowl, but you can name it whatever you'd like. See the text block below. If you don't input anything , I will just laser it as the "Bowling Shot Maker Machine"
