YRGEN, BARON SILBERG VON STACKEL GAME BOARD Filed Nov. 5, 1952 VIII/lll www Patented June 12, 1934 UNITED .STATES PATENT OFFICE GAME BOARD Yrgen, Baron Silberg von Stackelberg, Baltimore, Md.
4 Claims.
This invention relates to game apparatus, and has as its object to provide a game board upon which a highly interesting game may be played, the game being somewhat similar in principle to the game of billiards and pool.
The game board is one upon which a disk or a like game-piece is adapted to be projected over the surface thereof by means of a cue stick, or other projecting means, and to engage another disk or disks to place or project them into suitable pockets.
After the game has been played or practiced, the technique of the player or players may be developed so that the player or players become highly eiflcient in projecting the disks into the various pockets provided in the game board.
The playing of the game is conducive to grace of movement and agility, it cultivates precision and elegance, and it trains the vision. The game may be played by one or more players, preferably two or four players should indulge, and it will be found to be highly interesting and amusing to both children and adults.
The game board and its accessories are of a character and so constructed that they may be manufactured very inexpensively.
The invention will be more readily understood by referring to the annexed drawing, wherein- Figure 1 is a perspective View of a game board and its accessories.
Fig. 2 is a cross sectional view on the line 242 of Figure 1.
Fig. 3 is a cross sectional view on the lines 3-3 of Figure 1.
Fig. 4 is a fragmentary top plan view of the center portion of the table as shown in Figure 1.
Fig. 5 is a fragmentary view partly in section showing a slight modification.
Referring more particularly to the drawing, the numeral 5 designates the game board, or table, the upper surface of which is highly polished or smooth and around which is positioned an upstanding side rail or rim 6. The game board is shown as being substantially square but it is to be understood that the same may be round, hexagonal, octagonal, or of any desired outline. The upper or playing surface of the board 5 is provided adjacent each side rail with a starting line 7.
Adjacent the four corners of the table, the game board is cut out preferably circularly as denoted at 8, and suitable net or other pockets 9 are attached to the under side thereof and register with the openings 8 therein. The pockets may be secured to the game board in any suitable manner, and as shown, the upper ends thereof are turned over, as at 10, and a rigid metal or other ring 11 is placed therearound and this ring may be secured to the under side of the game board by suitable screws or other fastening members 12.
On the upper or playing surface of the board 5 and around the openings 8, there are positioned inclined rims or ring-like members 13 which are provided with a central opening which registers with the openings 8 in the game board. These ring-like members as shown are inclined upwardly and inwardly toward the opening, and at their lowest point, they are substantially flush with the surface of the game board, and they may be suitably secured thereto on their under side, as by gluing or otherwise.
A cone-like member 14 is preferably secured at the center of the game board, as shown. This cone-like member .may be secured to the board as by gluing, or in any suitable manner. This conemember has its apex flattened as at 15 and is substantially the same height as the height of the side rails or rim 6.
Game-pieces or surface projectiles are dek noted at 16, and these game-pieces are preferably fiat-sided circular disks provided with a central perforation or opening. These gamepieces 16 are adapted to be engaged by flat-sided circular cue disks 17, after the latter have been .projected on the surface of the board, as by a ksuitable cue stick 18 or other projecting means. The cue disks are also provided with a central perforation or opening.
There are thirty-two game-pieces or disks 16, and four cue disks 17. The game-pieces 16 are to be distributed in groups, eight in number, with one cue disk 17 to each player. 'I'he four groups of game-pieces 16 and a. cue disk 17 are al1 of different colors. That is, each player has a group of game-pieces and one cue disk of a color different from the color or colors of the disks of the other player or players.
Only two cue sticks 18 have been shown, but, of course, each player playing the game may have a cue stick.
The object of the game is for each player to shoot his eight colored disks 17 into the pockets 9, and the player succeeding in first doing this is the winner. Various rules, including penalties, may be abided by in playing the game. n,
One penalty is that if a player should so forcibly project the cue disk 17 against a disk or disks 16, and in which event, either of the said disks should go over and outside the rim 6, he must,
yeo
then place one of the disks 16 with the opening therein around the apex 15 of the cone-like projection 14, as shown in Figure 2, or on top of the same, as shown in Figure 5, and when it is again liis turn, he must shoot the cue disk 17 from the starting line toward the said projection, and due to the formation of the projection, the cue disk will slide up on thesame and knock the disk therefrom.
At the start of play, the groups of disks 16 are all placed on the board, as shown. That is, they are in engagement with their respective side rail or rim. The player places his cue disk 17 on the starting line 7 opposite the group of disks corresponding to the color of his cue disk, and then with cue stick 18 in hand, he hits the cue disk 17 therewith directing it, of course, toward his set or group of disks 16. By hitting one or more of the disks 16, with the cue disk 17, and due to the fact that the disks 16 are in engagement with the rail, the said hit or impact will cause the disks 16 to be widely scattered on the board, and in some instances, one or more of the disks may nd their way into the pockets with this initial hit, in which event, the player has another turn, or shot, until he fails to place one of his disks in a pocket. The openings'in the disks 16A and 17 enable the player to view the starting line 7 through the said openings, and this construction of disks and the starting line 7 will enable certain rules and penalties to be carried out during the course of play.
The formation of the rim or ring-like members 13 surrounding the openings 8 are such that the cue disk 17 must be projectedvwith just the correct amount of force to enable one of the disks 16 to fall into the pocket. Otherwise, that is, if the cue disk is too forcibly projected into contact with one of the disks 16, the disk 16 will ride on the inclined rim of the ring-like member 13 and entirely clear the opening 8, and in some instances go over and beyond the side rim or rail 6.
. The center of the board or table may be ornamented as shown, at A in Figures 1 and 4, which ornamentation preferably surrounds the projection 14. The game board or table 5 may be supported by suitable legs or any other desired supporting means and may be played indoors or out of doors as may be desired.
From the foregoing, it is believed clear that I have devised unique game accessories and a game board upon which a highly` interesting game may be played by children or adults, and from which, considerable enjoyment is derived.
What is claimed is:
1. A game board upon which surface projected disk or similar games may be played, comprising a at playing surface and an upstanding rim surrounding the same, and an upstanding substantially cone-shaped projection arranged on the board with the small end thereof uppermost and of substantially` the same height as the said rim, theY formation of the said projection being such to receive a playing disk on the small end thereof and the disk to be removed therefrom by another disk projected from any position on the board.
2. A game board upon which surface projected disk or similar games may be played, comprising a fiat playing surface and an upstanding rim surrounding the same, the game board having openings therein adjacent the said rim and below which pockets are positioned, ring-like members inclined upwardly and inwardly from the flat playing surface and outlining the said openings and over a rim portion of which a disk must travel before entering the pocket, and an upstanding substantially truncated cone-shaped projection arranged at the center of the board with the small end thereof uppermost and of Substantially the same height as the said rim, the formation of the said projection being such that a playing disk supported on the small end thereof is adapted to be removed therefrom by another disk projected from any position on the board.
3. A game board upon which surface projected disk or similar games may be played, comprising a flat playing surface having an upstanding rim therearound, and perforated disk game pieces, the game board having openings therein adjacent the said rim and below which pockets are positioned, ring-like members inclined upwardly and inwardly from the fiat playing surface and outlining tlie'said openings and over a rim portion of which a disk must travel before entering the pockets, an upstanding substantially cone-shaped projection arranged at tne center of the board with the small end thereof uppermost and of substantially the same height as the said rim, the formation of the said projection being such that a perforated disk game piece may surround and be supported on the small end thereof and the disk being adapted to be removed therefrom by another disk projected from any position on the board.
4. A gaine board upon which surface projected disk or similar games may be played, comprising a flat playing surface on which perforated disk gaine pieces can slide and having an upstanding rim therearound, the game board being provided with a starting line spaced inwardly of the said rim, whereby the perforation in the game pieces enables the player to properly place the game piece on the starting line byv viewing the line through the perforation in the game piece, the game board having openings therein adjacent the said rim and below which pockets are positioned,
ring-like members inclined upwardly and inwardly from the fiat playing surface and outlining the said openings and over a rim portion of which a disk must travel before entering the pockets, an upstanding substantially cone-shaped projection arranged at the center of the board with the small end thereof uppermost and of substantially the same height as the said rim, the formation of the said projection being such that a perforated disk game piece may surround and be supported on the small end thereof and the disk being adapted to be removed therefrom by another ldisk projected from any position on the board.
