1949 Keeney Ten Pins

Description: Ten Pins, Keeney, 1949, a roll-down type bowling game which uses small 2" balls rolled down at shuffle alley. The Keeney 10 Pins' balls hit small pins, which retract through a string. The pins are held to the alley with magnets (this is the same concept used on the 1957 Williams Ten Strike/Ten Pins and the 1939-1953 Evans Ten Strike). The ball is returned to the player at the front coin door area via gravity. The Keeney Ten Pins is perhaps the first ball bowler, and definitely the first contact ball bowler. It is essentially a single player mini version of the 1960 United Bowlarama.
