EDWIN J; MOEZGAN, OF NEVT YORK, N. .Y.
GAME.
Application filed March 23, 1922. Serial No. 546,213.
To all whom it may concern: In the drawing, Figure 1 is a perspective Be it known that I, EDWINJ. MORGAN, a view of one form of base and oscillatory subject of th King of England, and'a' resigoal post mounted thereon as employed in dent of New York, in the county of New my improved game. York and State of New York, have invented Fig.2 is a plan of a number of'the scoring certain new and useful Improvements in a rings used in the game, and
Game, of which the following is a full, Fig. 3is an elevation of the goal post reclear, and exact specification; moved from the base.
This invention relates more particularly The device or game has a base 10 which In to a class of amusement devices. maybe oval, circular or other appropriate My invention has for itsobject primarily shape, and on the central part of the base to provide a device or game designed to be are two upstanding brackets, as 11 and 12, employed in homes and elsewhere as an which are disposed in spaced parallel aramusing and interesting pastime by perlangement,

This weight invention consists mainly of a post or pole member is preferably of an elongated cylinwhich is pivotally supported so that it may drical shape extending on a downward verbe oscillated to and from a vertical plane tical line with relation to the post, and pro- 25 for serving as the goal in the game.

The ring elements may is spaced from the base 10 as well as being be of different-diameters each representing a of a diameter to allow free movement bedistinct number of counts so that the diflitween the brackets, and by pivoting the post 35 culty of making the goal in the plays ofthe and its weight member in this manner to the game will be varied according to the sizes of brackets both the post and weight member the ring elements which are played. may be oscillated with the weight member Another object of the invention is to pro- Serving to counterbalance the post when 'vide on the post one or a number of spaced swung so that the post will be movably 40 laterally protruding obstruction member or maintained normally in a vertical position. arms for tending to prevent the ring ele' Extending in opposite lateral directions ments from moving downwardly over the from opposite parts of the upper end porpost in event of the element not being tion of the post 13 are two obstruction memthrown true by the player; and'a further bers "or arms 17 and 18. Also extending in 45 object of the invention is to provide a game opposite lateral directions from opposite of a simple, el'iicient and durable construcparts of the post below the arms 17 and 18 tion which may be made of appropriate mamay be two more obstruction members or terial in any suitable size and shape. arms 19 and 20, andthe arms 19 and 20 are lVith these and other objects in view, the preferably disposed crosswise relative to the 1 50 invention will be hereinafter more fully dearms 17 and 18.
scribed with reference to the accompanying In conjunction with the oscillatory post drawing forming a part of this specification 13 I provide one or a number of scoring misin which similar characters of reference in siles, as 21, 22, 23, adapted to be thrown by dicate corresponding parts in all the views, one or a number of persons over the upper as and will then be pointed out in the claims at end of the goal post 13 for scoring counts in the end of the description. the game. These scoring missiles are preferably in the forms of rings or hands of different diameters, each of a size so that it is adapted to pass over the upper end of the post and over the obstruction members 17, 18, 19, 20 when accurately thrown to encircle the post. When the scoring rings are made for playing the game indoors the rings may be made of rubber so that they will not damage a table or other furniture as well as being noiseless when contacting with an article, and each ring may be numbered, as at 24, for representing different counts in the game. That is, the ring 23 represents fifty counts, because of being the smallest in size and, therefore, is the most difficult for being thrown so as to encircle the post. The ring 22 being next in size represents thirty counts, because of being larger than the ring 28, and, therefore, may be more readily thrown over the post, while the ring 21 being the largest in diameter and the easiestto throw over the post represents twenty the lowest number of counts. The person making, for example one hundred counts, is the winner of the game, though the game may be varied so as to include any number of counts, and if desired a greater or less number of the scoring rings may be provided. The rings are thrown by the players of the. game at a given distance from the post. The post may also be oscillated if preferred, and in order to accomplish the making of a goal the ring thrown must pass over the upper end of the post and over the obstruction members 17, 18, 19, 20 so as to encircle the post with the post remaining in avertical position when the ring is at rest. If a ring is not accurately thrown, and is suspended on one of the obstruction members, as shown at A Fig. 1, the play does not count since these members are provided in forms of the post for making the plays in the game difiicult to accomplish, in order that persons may practicethe eye for approximating a distance as well as testing the skill to accurately throw the rings true to an. objective goal.
In the foregoing description, 1 have em bodied the preferred form of my invention, but I do not wish to be understood as limiting myself thereto, as I am aware that modifications may be made therein without departing from the principle or sacrificing any of the advantages of this invention, therefore, I reserve to myself the right to make such changes as'fairly fall within the scope thereof.
Having thus describec my invention, 1 claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent 1. A game including tWo closely spaced parallel upstanding brackets, a goal post be tween the brackets, having intermediate its ends two oppositely extending lugs pivoted to the brackets whereby the post may be sav ung to and from vertical positions and the portion of the post above the brackets having spaced obstructing arm members protruding laterally in relative radial directions, and a separate ring element of a diameter adapted to encircle the post and said arm members.
2. A. game including a base, two closely spaced parallei upstanding brackets on the base, a goal post between the brackets, having on its lower end a counterbalancing member and having intermediate its ends two oppositely extending lugs pivoted to the brackets whereby the post may be swung to and from vertical positions, the portion of said post above the brackets also having spaced obstructing arm members protruding laterally in relative radial directions, and a separate ring element of a diameter adapted to encircle the post and said arm members.
3. A game including a base, two closely spaced parallel upstanding brackets on the base, a goal post between the brackets, having on its lower end a counterbalancing member and said member having at its upper part two oppositely extending lugs pivoted to the bracket whereby the post may be oscillated, the portion of the post above the brackets also having spaced obstructing arm members protruding laterally in rela tive radial directions, and a plurality of ring elements of different diameters adapted to encircle the post and said arm members.
This specification signed and witnessed this 22nd day of March A. D. 1922.
