In the dystopian future year of 2020...On an isolated Earth whose citizens never meet... Human contestants play a future-sport called B.O.W.L.I.N.G.For the entertainment of a maniacal computer.
"A hilarious experience that accurately captures the essence of bowling: drinking beers, trash talking with friends, and incomprehensible scoring."

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What on Earth am I getting myself into?
A funny game that captures the essence of bowling - that is, relaxed athletics, drinking beer and talking trash with your pals. Doesn't that sound kinda nice right now?
What's required to play the game?
Each player needs their own zoom-capable computer or tablet (very preferably a computer and not a tablet or phone) an individual zoom login and we highly recommend an external mouse (versus a trackpad or touchscreen). This game requires your skill and manual dexterity, as well as your charm and creativity. Better to save yourself the frustration of discovering this late and prepare early for the best possible experience.
Why does each player need their own computer?
The short version is - quality. With up to 75 folks in the game things can get pretty hairy and efficiencies like this keep everything running smoothly. Each player gets an individual chance to play, an individual chance to talk and individual chance to score points for their team. Thanks for helping us keep things fair, fast and fun.
Will I be to be on camera?
This game requires team cooperation and some very relaxed audience participation, so microphones are mandatory and most folks will be on camera. Feel free to disguise yourself with dramatic lighting and fake moustaches.
Can I be a total menace?
Nope. Everybody here is nice and you should plan to be nice, respectful and cool. Safety tools are in place. If you get rowdy, we might mute you. If you're unfriendly, we might boot you. And no refunds.
Is BOWLING NIGHT kid friendly?
Abso-maybe. Here's the thing, all our Live Action Attractions are family-friendly and workplace appropriate in their hosted content. However they're also fully interactive and attended by an adult audience who are encouraged to drink and carouse. No abusive behavior is tolerated, but folks can sometimes get rowdy when they're blowing off steam. We're happy to have older kids watch and even participate with an adult guardian present, but you as the parent must determine your comfort level with what they'll be exposed to.
All the computer talk sounds complicated! What if I need a little tech support?
The lobby (AKA your invitation link) opens 30 minutes before showtime for light tech support. If you're not 100% confident video calls and think you might benefit from just a little personalized attention - just come early. You'll be given a number in the order you arrive and served one-on-one in an orderly fashion. This show assumes a basic computer competency and reliable computer setup. When showtime hits, we're off like a rocket!
What if my computer is acting all weird?
Computers act weird. And when your computer isn't acting weird, Zoom might be acting weird because of an update. Or maybe lots of people in your neighborhood are watching Netflix right now so the Internet is weird. This is a fact of life currently and we know how frustrating that is!
We recommend this: update your Zoom, follow our recommended tech setup, arrive early for tech support, and then -- go with it. There will still be lots to enjoy and your score won't be penalized for tech malfunctions.
How long is the show?
The show starts promptly at your selected showtime and lasts approximately 90 minutes.
What if I'm running a little late?
Hooboy. It's hard to say no to you. But, if you're not confident you can arrive on time, perhaps select a better showtime before making reservations. The show starts promptly at your specified showtime and admission is locked precisely 5 minutes later. Out of respect for the audience and performers no latecomers can be admitted. And no refunds.
Do I need bowling experience? Do I need drinking experience?
Not one bit. You can be terrible at bowling and be great at this - zero previous experience is required. And drinking plays no formal part in the game.
