My invention isa game simulating bil-v Vl-iards o itpoolgsor games thesa-me type andfusingv as cue, adev'i'c'e representing" a f f as fdlflovvs- Aesui-tablesubstaiitialfbasej -11-v n is eniploye`l lvvhich-:vtnayest on auf-ordinary tatie top .indicated :,bgjygif-la; l@thisfijas@ prefreeefsreat `theLeeinemandalso -fan upperv -neeess 145 central l'blfeclfr 15 Vlis attached V:te theibase,-l=thefe@being a-pivot 1100115216 .-w'vhchflexteds:through theeenterzef' n "obJectofwm'y 'invention is ,tlie-,con-l struction of a gameplayed in' xthe'--nanne`r ofbilhardsypool or-siniilar gam l havinga rotatable table orga-me' rvboard'Y tflitthe players may Lremain stationary -afnd seated if desired, Aturning the table' to @play `tlife gaine.

ers may remain stationaryv instead of having to move around'the table.

In `the construction'of the cue, I have a device simulating a riflein'shape, with a slidable bar which may be' termed a cue]7 This bar has a trigger thereon and is actuated by springpower. A simple contrivanee for actuating the cue is to have an .elastic band With one end secured tothe lrear endrof the cue which extends through the barrel of the gun, and the other end secured to the barrel part of the gun structure.

` Therefore,` onk pulling back on t-lietrigger7 the band is stretched` and on release, the cue is shot forward, there being a limitto the movement of the cue, and thus givlng Vthe striking force against the balls. i

My invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings in which:

Figure 1 is a perspective'view of the game Vboard with the gun operating the cue resting thereon.

Fig. 2 is a board. Y

Fig. 3 is a side elevation of the gun having the cue therein. n y f Fig; 4 is a longitudinal vertical section through the gun. f Y

longitudinal section of the The' e table-partei my game is @eliminated ing. If ydesiredff-there;maydie 'aibushing18i' L surrounding the boltgytli-i's bolt being f secured ;euredgto the bleek 15 by:scriewvszilwerfthe\il dike. .This .boardnhas :a f-s11itabler;padding Lon -zitsw-ipper fsurfaeeeQQ and hasfla rim ..23 @with rubber-1 bumpers or defleotorsei Thereare The gun'structure designated by the nuindicatedby 2:7:nrhich1eare 'intlie@packet-s;`-V` y meral 28 has a stock 29 Witha barrelsection lB0 connected thereto, the barrel having a longitudinal bore lthrougli thebarrel from end `to end,` and there is a lateralslot 32 kthrough ythe stockk into the bore of' the barrel.' Y t z "The cue33 is constructedof a rod which fits in the bore 31, this'ihaving a striking headi With a trigger 35 which extends through the slot 32, this trigger-having' a nger grip 36 below `the upper part of the stock. The rear end 37 oli-this rod forms the cue and extends beyond the krear end of K l l the barrel andrhasa pin,l 38or the like connected thereto. Arubber, or lother elastic `band 39 is connectedto this pin andpis p stretched along the barrel of the gunl struc-f ture, being secured thereto byerafastening i 40 or the likef v y -v i Themanner of playingthe game is substantially as follows: vThe balls used are miniature billiard balls ory proper sized `marbles, and these arefplaoed on the playing' table, which vtable may be rotated as above described. There is a certain frictional'resistance vto the rotation of the Atable sufficient to prevent rapid spinning which would displace the balls Vby'centrifugal action, and f;

aim at the ball to be struck and in the di-` rection it is to be struck. If it is desired to give'a hard blow, the trigger may be drawn back the full extent of the slot and then released, and by proper judgment in .striking thevball, a relatively heavy blow may be given. If itis desired only to have a light'blow, the trigger Will only be partly drawn back and released With the elastic only partly tensioned, and thus give a light blow.` It is apparent that the players may manipulate the gun and the position in which they strike the balls so as to praetically secure the'efeet of playing billiards or pool with ordinary cues, but remain stationary and move the table. t

InF ig. 5 I show a pistol type of device for operating aeue, this having -a pistol handle grip 41 with a barrel 42 and having a slot 43 in the stock to accommodate the trigger of the rod forming the ouai The construction and operationof the pistol device is the same as the gun type of device shown in Figs. 3 and 4. If desired a person may aim the barrel of the pistol by handling it in one Vhand vvhilethey grip 4l of the pistol is held in the other hand; Whereas, `With s the gun the player aims by placing the end of the stock against the shoulder.

In playing the above mentioned game with my game board, it will be seen that it affords a game of skill in being able to aim the gun correctly and also using judgment in the striking of the balls. It is apparent, however, that if desired the gun or the pistol type of device with the eue may be used With a stationary billiard table or the like, the player moving around the table to play the game. y

Various changes may be made `in the principles of my invention without departing from the spirit thereoias set forth in the description, drawings and Claim.

In a game, a" striking implement comprising a gun-like struc-ture having a barrel with a longitudinal bore, a stock connected thereto having a lateral slot entering the said bore, a rod slidable in the bore and extending therethrough forming a eue, a trigger rigidly connected tothe rod and extending through the slot, a spring connected to the barrel and to the rod, the slot forming a limiting movement in both directions for the. trigger,

thereby giving a limit to the projection of the rod and to the tension of the spring, the trigger and rod `being adapted Yfor retention in a retracted position solely by engagement with a persons linger.

In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification.
