Yes, manual scoring was much more satisfying. With the automatic scoring, it feels like you're working for the machine, as opposed to the other way around.

I miss the days of keeping score manually.  These days it's a pain when the automatic scorer screws up.

Nope, I'd missed that. Good catch! (Although he could have thrown a gutter ball for his first attempt and picked up the spare; that would explain both the score and why the X is not in the left-hand box... but would a player who can bowl in the 170s throw a gutter ball??)

If the "X" in the 6th frame of game #2 represents a strike, that bowler's total should've been 174 vice 173. Did anyone else notice?

With my poor vision, bowling was one of the few sports in which I could participate fully. I joined a league when I first moved to California, averaging around 150, but actually bowled a 264 once.
