A bowling center system includes a plurality of lane pair control systems each including a pin setting device for each lane, a pin setter control unit, a game control unit, a bowler input station and a pair of overhead display monitors. The game control unit is operable under the control of a game control program stored in a memory for automatically operating the pin setter control units during game play to selectively set a sequence of pin patterns on the lane. A manager's control system is coupled to each of the lane pair control systems and includes a bowler input station similar to the game control unit bowler input station. The manager's control system is electrically connected for communication with the game scoring unit, and switching circuitry is provided for selectively coupling the manager's control system bowler input station to a select one of the game score control units so that the manager's control system bowler input station interfaces with the operation of the bowling game for the selected game control unit.
