Trying to get together a 1st Thursday of the month bowling side pot bonanza and looking for side games to add to the night.
Here are some side games I can think of..

High game and high series side pot
Mystery doubles
Most strikes in a row from the beginning of each game
mystery strike frames.. pull three or four frames out of a hat and put in an envelope.. at the end of the game open the envelope and if anyone has strikes in all of those frames they win the pot..if no one does then it rolls to the next game..
clean game pot

have any others??
18 mph,350 rpm,PAP 4 3/4 x 1/4 up, 15 deg axis tilt, varied rotational axis deg.. usually 45+

Book Average 220

We have Eliminator which is a head to head, loser is out, then rematched.
Also, Survivor where bottom half of entrants are eliminated each game. Last game, high game wins.
Skins pot, example would be on a lane, there are 5 bowlrs, each put in a buck or 10 cents per frame each, 50 cents er frame total. The bowler who is the only one to strike wins the frame. If there are ties, the pot carries over. Must get a winner in tenth frame. Go to multiple balls or best countto decide.

The hard one is controlled by the House, a Strike pot. Must get strikes in frames 1-3 in first game, 4-7 in second game and 8-10 in third game. This is open to every bowler in every league. It carries over if not won. Last winner won $19,000 which carried over for years.
