Application led April 3,
` ily, andwill aiford an element of 'chance adding Agreatly to the interest ofthe game'.
With the foregoing and other objects in view which will appear as the description proceeds,theinvention'resides in the combination and arrangement of parts and in the details of construction hereinafter described and claimed, lit being understood that changes in the precise embodiment of the invention herein disclosedmay be made within the scope of what is claimedwithout departing from the spirit of the invention. In the accompanying drawings the preferred form of the invention has been shown.
In said drawingsi 'y Fig. 1 is a view partly in elevation and partly in section showing the game piece and the parts lassociated therewith. p
Fig. 2 is an enlarged view partlyin elevation and partly in section of a portion of one of the game pieces with its base removed. y 1 Fig. 3 is an elevation lof one of the bases.V -Fig. Aet is an enlarged section through one of the game pieces audits base on the line 44, Fig. 1. Y
Referring `to the figures by characters of reference 1 designates a game. pieceof any desired configuration. In the present 1nstance it is shaped L to simulate a whale although itis to be understood that other shapes can be usedto simulate fish of dif.- ferent kinds. This game piece is formed ofy a central sheet of cardboard or similar material indicated at 2 provided, in the bot tom portion thereof, with a recess 3. The faces of the central thickness 2 are preferably covered with thin sheets of paper or other material indicated at 4 and on which a suitable illustration of the whale or other object represented, is printed, painted, or otherwise displayed. These side or facing sheets extend across the recess 3 so as to conceal it except at the bottom edge of the game piece. Eyes 5 project upwardly from the upper edges of the game pieces and are 1924. Serial No. 704,018.
sufficiently large to Vreceive a hook 6 suspended, by a cord 7, from a small pole or stick 8. y Y
Ilach game piece is provided with a b ase 9 formed ofka block of wood or the like and projecting upwardly from the baseis a cap feo 10 adapted to be inserted into any one of the recesses 3 in the game pieces.r One of these bases is'providedffor each game piece and the tabs on the respectivefaces 'are preferably provided with suitable designations whereby values can be determined. For
example in the form shown inligsl and 3 the tab is Vprovided"with the designation Ne 5. 'Ihis'is to countas' five ypoints in favor of a player picking up the game piece in which the tab is seated .and held frictionally. n y
In playing the game a box 11 is used,this box ordinarily being employed for lhousing the game pieces and other parts of the game. The several game pieces are positioned on the dierent'tabs 10 of the bases 9 and are coupled on the bottom of the box 11 so that the players do not know where tabs of any particular values are located. The players then take turns in picking for the game pieces andwhen any one of them is vhooked it is placed to the credit` of the player who is given a number of points equal to the number contained onr the tabsy concealed within the hooked game piece. After all of the game pieces have been gathered by the players,y the numbersheld to the credit of each player are totaled and this determines the winner of the game.
yObviously various other designations can be placed on the tabs and to provide additional credits or penalties.
The tabs are adapted to fit into the recesses snugly so that when a game piece is lifted the tab and its base will be carT lried therewith. The tabs can be readily pulled out of position and replaced, however. Y
What is claimed is 1. A game including a plurality of game pieces having recesses therein, bases for supporting the game pieces, and tabs projecting from the bases and detachably seated in the recesses within the respective game pieces,
each of said tabs bearing a value designation, normally concealed.
2. A game including a plurality of game pieces each having a recess extending between the sides thereof, a base for each game piece, a tab upon each base adapted to be removably seated in any one of the recesses in the game pieces, there being Value designations on the tabs normally concealed by the engaged game pieces.
3. A game including a plurality of game pieces each having a recess extending between the sides thereof, a base for each game piece, a tab uponeach base adapted to be removably seated in any one of the recesses in the game pieces, there being value designations on the tabs normally concealed by the engaged game pieces, and means for lifting the game pieces with their bases and tabs, each of said means including an eye upon the game piece and means for engaging the eyes to lift the game pieces.
4. A game including an imperforate board, and a plurality of game pieces resting on and slidable upon the board, each of said game pieces having a recess in the bottom thereof, a base for each game piece, and a tab extending from each base and normally removably seated in the recess in one of the game pieces, there being a Value designation on each tab normally concealed by the game piece, said pieces being slidable in all directions upon the game board, and means on each game piece for engagement by an elevating element.
5. A game piece including a central thickness of material having a recess extending into one edge portion thereof, covering sheets afixed to opposed faces of said central thickness and forming side Walls for the recess, a base, and a tab extending from the base and insertible into the recess for. frictional engagement with the Walls thereof, said tab bearing a Value designation which is normally concealed in the recess and beingfremovable from the recess.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own, I have hereto affixed my signature.
