Abstract

1,166,564. Word game apparatus. DE LUXE TOPPER CORP. 8 March, 1967 '[14 July, 1966], No. 10852/67. Heading A6H. Apparatus for playing a word game comprises the device shown wherein in play the handle 98 is moved forward and downward to effect a scrambling of the letters and symbols shown in the slot 20 and to lower the finger 134 thus permitting clockwise movement of the timer pointer 54. The players attempt to form words from the symbols shown and when they have succeeded, place a .peg 156 in one of the holes 44 and arrest movement of the pointer. The dial is divided to indicate scores which decrease along the path of rotation so that a quick solution gives a high score. If none of the players succeeds in forming a word the 'pointer will be arrested by stop 49 and is reset by anti-clockwise rotation which winds the timer mechanism.
