Everybody’s Playing… Rola Score (skee ball)

In 1936, for just $179.50, any establishment could purchase this 9 foot bowling game with all the thrills of the larger game!

Chicago Coin Corporation really nailed it with this flyer. I still want one, 77 years later!

Perfect for tournament practise!

Skee-Ball was a big hit at this time, so these smaller versions would have been great for getting into the full size game.

Incidentally, the purchase cost of $180 would now cost you around $3000. I think this is still great value by modern standards.

This and many more arcade flyers can be found at The Arcade Flyer Archive.
