The ultimate way to gamble on the lanes!

Alley Hold'em™ is a poker chip game based on positive (and negative) bowling events. It is designed to be played with 3-5 players, and can be played as individuals or teams expanding the total number of people that can participate. The object of the game is to accumulate positive chips and avoid negative chips. Play starts with all of the chips "out of play". Before you start bowling, the group decides the value of each chip (typically $1-$5). When a bowler makes a roll or score that corresponds to a certain chip, he or she is awarded that chip, and retains possession of it until a fellow competitor earns the chip by making a similar play. Multiple chips can be won on a single roll; for example, if a player rolls a single pin miss in the 10th frame, which results in the low game, the player has to accept the single pin miss chip and the low game chip. The chips are "cashed in" after each game or at then end of the series. Players with positive chips get paid the chip value from every other player (thus a $1 positive chip in a game with four players is worth $1+$1+$1=$3 to the person holding it). Players with negative chips must pay the chip value to every other player (a $1 negative chip in the same situation costs the person holding it $1+$1+$1=$3). This money can be paid to individuals or go into a team "kitty" if desired.
