ScoreTower Levels The Playing Field
Summary: ScoreTower provides functional, frontline defense against backyard score forgery.
Grandpa Tony has been up to his usual tricks. The guise of a sweet old man provides the perfect cover as he manipulates his bocce score any way he can. Tony’s arsenal of tactics is plentiful and time-tested. Questionable math? He’s calculated it. Sporadic memory loss? Oh, he’s got it. And who could forget Tony’s famous “bathroom breaks,” lasting the better part of an hour. Could anyone recall the score after an interruption like that? Grandpa Tony, I’ve got love for ya. But your reign of error ends now.
Introducing the ScoreTower, my secret weapon in the war on faulty scores. It keeps and displays the current game score, eliminating any round-to-round uncertainty. Needless to say, Mr. Uncertainty himself, Grandpa Tony was less than thrilled as his nefariously obtained winning streak came to a screeching halt. So far he’s blamed his losses on the wind, bad luck, and even lawn gophers. Entertaining, yes. But seriously Tony, it might be wise to turn off Caddy Shack for just a little bit.
Oddly enough, Grandpa Tony’s disdain for ScoreTower took a turn after he found out about the built in drink holders. I’ll put it to you like this, Tony’s no stranger to a tall cool one on the back lawn. But Tony’s record of keeping his beverage in his container is spotty at best. lets just say he’s knocked over his fair amount of precariously placed drinks. He thinks it’s paid for itself with all the prevented spilled drinks. That may be true, but I’m just happy to have an accurate score for once!
The ScoreTower counts up to 21, and can be used for a variety of games. Bocce, cornhole, horseshoes, washers and ladder ball, just to name a handful. Tony refuses to play anything other than Bocce, but that’s an entirely different story.
