"Bowl two games, get one free"
On other days, with a different person at the counter, when I bowl six games, I'm only charged for three (because for every two games I bowl, one of them should be free).
The coupon can be interpreted both ways, because what it says is "bowl two, get one free." If it said "pay for two, get one free" then it would pretty clearly be every third game free. Curiously, it's the owner of the establishment who takes the more liberal interpretation of half the games free.
An excellent, clean, well-run bowling center, btw...
