Shuffle bowl

Rowan Tree 1633 S. Charles St. 410-468-0550, therowantree.net League plays 1 p.m. Sundays; free to play, teams of up to three people A fusion of shuffleboard and bowling, shuffle bowl grew popular in the 1970s. The board has the same polished wood table as shuffleboard, complete with pucks. But shuffle bowl has an electronic unit at the end with faux bowling pins that spring up when struck. Scoring is essentially the same as regular bowling, without all that waiting for the ball to return -- the puck rebounds off of a rubberized backstop directly to the user. Regular games are free, and Rowan Tree's league meets on Sundays for its 16-week season, with a party at the end of the tournament to celebrate. The league is free, the bar usually has 2-for-1 drink specials and the league typically has a turnout of six teams or so. Pictured: Example of a shuffle bowl machine.
