My fiancé and I are big bowlers. We are in multiple leagues throughout the year. Playing this game isn't 100% real obviously but it is loads of fun! You can choose different types of pin layouts and lane conditions. It's a must have game in our house hold! We even have Wii bowling tournaments every year with our friends. We actually call it the Super Bowl lol It is a fun way to connect with friends, have great food and forget about life's problems.
