GAME.

Application filed April 17, 1924. Serial No. 707,063.

T 0 all 20 710m it may concern.

Be it known that I, RAYMOND MoYER TATE, residing at Plymouth, in the county of Devon, England, a subject of the King of Great- Britain and Ireland, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Games, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to games and particularly to games in which a revolving pointer indicates the winner by the position in which it stops along a suitably divided scale.

According to this invention, I provide a game of this type in which the pointer is partially under the control of each of the players.

In one particular form of game according to this invention, the control is electrical. The gan'ie, as arranged for n players, comprises an arm which revolves above a circular table divided into a number of equal sectors. At one end of the arm is fixed an electric motor which drives an air-screw or propeller, causing the whole arm to rotate about its axis at the centre. It is the object of the player to stop the end of the arrow upon which is placed the illuminated model when the same is above his sector of the table. For this purpose he is provided with an electric push switch which controls one section of a twenty-four way electromagnetic brake. Means are provided whereby each of the a players has individual and separate control of the arrow for a division of one twenty-fourth of the circumference of the table only. lVhen the arm is above this section. the player has for a limited period the sole right to apply the magnetic brake. but is unable to control the arm at any position other than his own.

In order to win the game the player must press his switch when the arm is moving slowly above his sector of the table, when the electric brake will stop the arm dead.

Referring to the drawings left herewith, which illustrate as an example a game in accordance with my invention Fig. 1 is a plan;

Fig. 2 is a side elevation;

Fig. 3 is a diagram of the electric circuit.

a is the arm or arrow, rotating above the circular table 7); c is the electric motor and d is the fan or propeller the action of which causes the arm to rotate about its axis 6.

Upon the arm a is mounted a'magnet' f and a brush 9 which makes electrical contact upon a set of 71, segments mounted upon a disc beneath the arrow or arm.

A set of brushes m m mwand slip rings ?/1, 3/2, 3 is provided for feeding the motor 0 and a magnet 7' through a lamp Z and also for illuminating the. arm and an ornamental figure h at its extremity.

The magnet revolves above a set of a soft iron keepers 2' which are arranged so that when the magnet f is above it, the brushes his push switch m he will have the sole power to pass an electric current through the windings of the magnet f, whilst the arrow is facing his switch only.

The magnet is mounted on a sliding mechanism and when it is excited it is drawn down on to one of the keepers and adheres thereto, thus causing the rotating arm a to come to a standstill opposite the corresponding push switch m.

It is the object of each one of the n players to makethe arrow point stop opposite his section of the table.

A two-way and off switch 0 is provided to enable the showman to start the propeller and after the arrow has attained suflicient speed, to throw the magnet circuits into operation to enable the players to control the arrow. hen the switch is in the magnet-operating position, the motor 0 is receiving current through an additional lamp or other suitable resistance Z and only rotates slowly, causing the arrow at to rotate slowly until one of the players operates the magnet.

Electric lights and ornamental figures and devices may be provided on the arm and where required.

What I claim and desire to secure by Let te-rs Patent is 1. A game comprising a. revolving arm provided with a pointer moving on a dial, means for propelling the moving arm, and

means for stopping the moving arm in any of n positions, the said stopping means being under the control of any one of the players in turn, when the pointer is in the section of the dial allocated to said player.

2. A game comprising a revolving arm provided with a pointer moving on a dial, means for propelling the moving arm, said means comprising an electric motor on said moving arm. and means for stopping the moving arm in any of n positions, the said stopping means being under the control of any one of the players in turn, when the pointer is in the section of the dial allocat-ed to said player.

3. A game comprising a revolving arm provided with a pointer moving on a dial, means for propelling the moving arm, said means comprising an electric motor on said moving arm, and means for electrically stopping the moving arm in any of a positions, the said stopping means being under the control of any one of the players in turn, when the pointer is in the section ol? the dial allocated to saidplayer.

at. A game comprising a revolving arm provided with'a pointer moving on a dial, means for propelling the moving arm,-said means comprising an electric motor on said moving arm, and means for electrically stopping the moving arm in any of a positions,- the said stopping means being under the' co-ntrol of any one of the players in turn, when the pointer is in the section of the dial allocated to said player, said stopping means comprising an electro-magnet and its armature.

5. A game comprising a revolving arm provided with a pointer moving on a dial,

means for propelling the moving arm, said means comprising an electric motor on said moving arm, and means for electrically stopping the moving arm in any of n positions, the said'stopping means being under the control of any one of the players in turn, when the pointer is in the section of the dial allocated to said player, said stopping means comprising an electro-magnet and its armaturathe electro-magnet being on the moving arm.

6'. A game comprising a revolving arm provided with a pointer moving on a dial. means for propelling the moving arm, said means comprising an electric motor on said moving arm, and means for electrically stopping the moving arm in any of n positions. the saidstopping means being under the control of any one of the players in turn, when the pointer is in the section of the dial allocated to saidplayer, said stopping means comprising an electro-magnet and its armature, the electro-magnet being on the moving arm, means being provided for decreasing the propelling power on the arm when putting in circuit the said stopping means.

In testimony whereof, I ai'lix my signature.

RAYMUND MOYER TATE.
