deal with the deck marked We and their This invention relates in general to im-.

provements in laying cards. 1

One of the objects of this invention is the provision of a novel form of playing card in which the cards themselves indicate what player, or players, is dealing them. One of the objects of this invention 18 the provision of playing card decks provided withindicia to aid in determining who the dealer was and who the next dealer-will be. These and other objects as will appear from the disclosure are secured by means of this invention.

This invention resides substantially in the combination,construction, arrangement and relative location of elements all as will more fully appear below,

Referring to the drawings, the single figure is a front elevational view of two decks "2 of cards employing the features of this invention, which decks taken together provide a set.

As is well known in playing the game of bridge it is usual to employ two decks of cards. In this game four persons usually playand the are arranged in two sets of two partners eac The deal progresses around the table from the left and the same partners always deal with the same deck of cards. Heretofore the pnly method of keeping the two decks of cards separate and to indicate which set of partners deals them was to provide them on the back with diiferent colored markin s, but ,those who are familiar with t e game are well aware of the fact that 'it is very confusing and diflicult to remember after a hand has been played who thedealer is. v In keeping the usual score in this game the scorer usually 40 marks the column in which his and his partners scorev is kept with the word We, and the column in which his opponents score is kept is marked They. It is the purpose of this invention to provide one of the decks of the usual bridge set at thetop with the character We, and the other deck with the character They. To secure the best results it has been found that it is better to mark each card of each deck with these characters.

Thus the scorer and his partner will always opponents will deal with the deck marked They. Referring to the drawingsfor a better understanding of the invention the figure shows a front elevational view of two decks of cards comprising the individual cards 1 and 2. As is well known in this game two decks provide a bridge set. The cards have been shown in these gure's with the back exposed and each card of one deck is provided at the top with the character They and each card of the other deck is provided with the character We. It is, of course, to be understood that the characters They and We could be placed on the front of the cards or, in fact, at any point on either face of the cards. Furthermore, any other symbol for securing the same result could be used. v In using a bridge set employing the features of this invention the scorer andhis partner would employ the deck marked We, and their opponents would employ the deck marked They. Thus by means of these cards it is possible for bridge players to always know which deck they deal with and since the question of whose deal it is is most usually raised with respect to the opposing partners it will be whose deal it is.

It will be apparent from the foregoing disclosure that I have devised a new and novel form of playing card decks and I do not wish to be limited to the disclosure given for purposes of illustration but rather to the principles of my invention as I have defined them in the appended claims.

What I seek to secure by United States Letters Patent is:

1 As a new article of manufacture a deck of playing cards the backs of which bear a definite determinative indicia designating a definite pair of partners.

2. In combination a deck 'of cards the backs of which carry indicia definitely designating one pair of players and a second deck of cards, the backs of which bear indicia definitely designating the opponents.

3. In a set of bridge playing cards the combination of two separate decks of cards,

possible to always know used by two sets of partners one deck being marked We and one deck being marked They, such markings always indicating which set of partners will deal each deck. 4. As a new article of manufacture a pair of decks of playing cards, the backs of the cards of one deck bearing the word We for definitely indicating the score keeper and his partner in a given game the remaining deck 10 bearing the word The for definitely indicating the opponents o the score keeper and his partner in saidgame, the several decks neing adapted to be assigned to the respective pairs of partners and serving thereafter in w ordinary progress of a game to indicate the next dealer. In 'testimnoy whereof I have hereunto set myghand on this 4th day of J anuary', A. 1)., 192
