... set up a bowling pot?

A bowling pot is a great alternative to using the scores of a football game and can be a lot of fun especially in the context of league play becasue everyone is together, watching for who will win the pot.
 
Settlement is really easy because everyone will be at the bowling alley anyway.
 
To set up a bowling pot on the Host a Pot page:
  • Use bowling scores to determine winners. - Instead of using opposing football teams' scores to determine a pot's winner(s), use bowling scores - either from a single game or the totals from a series of games.

  •  
  • Consider using the No Teams option. - A bowling match is a great opportunity to use the "No Teams" option to produce double winners.

  •  
  • Yes, you can use Quarter or Half win periods. - Since most league play is a three-game series, you could use individual game scores for the first three win periods and the series totals for the final.
     
    You might even use one game - or the totals of the first two games - for the first half score if you want to limit win periods to just the half and the final.
TIP: Be sure to explain how your pot works in the Comments field.
