Bowling in Japan: The Moonlight Strike Game at Round1

14 Responses

  1. I was absolutely thinking of cosmic bowling from the pictures but the moonlight strike game sounds fun. I could just imagine everybody lining up and bowling all at once. Even if the prize is just a lei and a photo, it is always fun to win something and create extra memories with your friends.

  2. That sounds fun. Bowling is such a great activity-perfect for the whole family. 😉 I love that the bowling alleys are sprucing themselves up with the cool lights, games (like this one), interactive scoreboards, and such. Of course, I suck at bowling and require bumpers at 48 years old, but that is a whole other issue. LOL

  3. Bowling is always fun and I love that Round1 throws in some fun twists like this. I love that picture of you and your friends at the end too.

    For some reason, I’ve never managed to develop an interest in bowling. I accompany my friends who love it and just sit and watch! Moonlight strike game sounds pretty interesting, I could always pass this info on to my friends, I’m sure it’ll be helpful for them 🙂 Thanks!

      Personally, I think bowling is a little similar to golf in that you tend to appreciate it more once you understand the mechanics of it. Still, I thought the moonlight strike game was a creative twist to the traditional bowling.

    Such a fun activity involving family and friends. I have tried my hand at this and I remember my first throw when it didn’t cross even half the length. People around were courteous enough to suppress their laughter.

    How fun! We used to go bowling every couple of months, at least, when we lived in the US. I haven’t been bowling in years though. Now you’ve got me wondering if we have a bowling alley around us somewhere here in Bordeaux.

    This sounds like a blast! And, I love that you don’t know when it’s going to happen, so it’s a fun surprise to shake up the game. I’ve never played it before, but would love to!

    Lot of fun! I must say especially when it is not at an appointed hour but random. I have not heard of moonlight strike it before and we don’t have it the alley near our home. I will probably suggest this 🙂 Happy New Year !

      I used to go bowling all the time at home, but was definitely surprised when I went in Japan and the moonlight strike game came on. I definitely think it’s something other places around the world should do!

  9. That sounds so fun! I like how they do it randomly, that way anyone can have a chance. I do think that everyone should have the goal of getting a strike though.

    • Kiyoko says:

      I thought it was cool that it was random, but it kind of backfired because it always seemed to come up when it was my turn to bowl!

    That definitely would spice up a night of bowling! I also love that the whole alley goes through it together for some fun camaraderie and the randomness of Moonlight Strike no doubt would keep everyone on their toes!
