Two players stand across from each other, 48 feet apart. Each has a football and a set of 10 bowling pins standing upright. The object of the game is to knock your opponent's pins down before he takes out yours.
This is fowling, a game invented by Chris Hutt of Detroit. He's recently converted a 34,000 square foot industrial building into the Fowling Warehouse--a 20-lane fowling facility. The AP reports that it's thriving:
Hutt's business, which also has a 175-seat beer garden and a stage for live music, has drawn big crowds on weekend nights. Some take advantage of a deal that allows unlimited play for $10 until closing at 2 a.m. Others reserve lanes for group play, up to 10 players per lane, in two-hour increments.
