Picked up a Strikes 'N Spares out of long-term basement storage and thought I’d give it a facelift after shopping it out.
Not for the pinball purest but this is a fun game and adds some variety to a game room. It’s basically a one trick pony but with its familiar 10 frame bowling rules and simplicity, it gets a fair amount of play. I’m not done with the conversion yet but I’m pretty happy with the results so far.

Two of the pictures show a sheet metal lift channel I designed as the original lift channels for this game are no longer available or produced. And my design is a significant improvement over the original anyway. Just need to paint it black. (Thank you, Longmont Sign Company)

That’s an inverted Glare Guard attached on top to house and shield the LED strip shining down to illuminate the top marquee. (Thank you, Comet Pinball)

Like real bowling, it’s a beer drinking game.

Yeah- the makret for strikes and spares just went up 400%. I now want one badly. Thats amazing.

Curious if you would share any of the details as to how you did this.

Strikes and Spares Value has just skyrocketed

Whelp, there’s your proof.... Licensed themes sell more machines.

Man that’s nice. Hopefully you’ll incorporate the theme into the playfield a bit.

Looks very cool. And a fun game to play with others. While drinking, or not.

Can't believe I missed this - looks fantastic!! Curious if the ROM has somehow been customized, or if that's simply a custom message?
