''Elf Bowling 1 & 2'' are two Bowling Games put in one package. It was developed by Black Lantern Software, published by Ignition Entertainment, and released in 2005 for the UsefulNotes/GameBoyAdvance and UsefulNotes/NintendoDS, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_video_games_notable_for_negative_reception#Elf_Bowling_1_.26_2_.28Game_Boy_Advance.2C_Nintendo_DS.29 to notorious negative reception]]. The original ''Elf Bowling'' was originally released in 1998 by [=NStorm=] for PC, with the second game being released in 2000.

The first game has you play as Santa Claus. Santa is apparently quite the bowler, and he is quite willing to use those whiny, snickering, union elves as bowling pins.

The second game has Santa and the Elves on a cruise ship heading to an island adventure. Santa's good-for-nothing brother Dingle Kringle joins up with them. This game is a strange shuffleboard tournament, and the elves are being used as the pucks.

A DirectToVideo [[TheMovie movie]] based on the games, called ''Elf Bowling the Movie: The Great North Pole Elf Strike'' was released in 2007. [[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0460811/ No, really.]]
