Description

    BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • This invention relates generally to washer tossing games and more particularly, to a portable washer tossing game apparatus.
  • Traditionally, washer tossing games include two scoring boxes each having a can or a cup mounted within. The scoring boxes include an interior portion for capturing tossed washers. At least some of the known washer tossing games include scoring boxes constructed from wood pieces attached in a rectangular or square shape with a bottom piece of wood attached thereto. In the simplest of forms, the cup attached therein is a paint can or other container that can be attached to the bottom piece of wood. The washers tossed into the cans within the scoring boxes are scored at a higher point level than washers tossed into the scoring boxes.
  • While functional, such home made washer tossing games are not easily portable to gatherings and events away from the home and present a bit of a storage problem. Some washer tossing games are known to exist where the scoring boxes and cup are formed from a single piece of extruded plastic and are stackable. While alleviating the portability and storage problems somewhat, it is believed that another solution to portability and storage would be beneficial.

  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
  • FIG. 1 is a breakout view of a portable washer tossing game 10. Game 10 includes a hollow, cylindrical carrying case 12 having a strap 14 which serves as a handle or shoulder strap, and a plurality of scoring boxes 16 that are configured to be rolled for insertion and storage within carrying case 12. Game 10 further includes two end caps 18 and a plurality of washers 20. In various embodiments, washers 20 are coated with a plastic, a rubber, a paint, or a powdered coating which can supply a coloring to washers 20, and therefore enable an ease of recovery of tossed washers. The various coatings may also lessen a bounce of a tossed washer 20, improving a quality of the game. End caps 18 are configured to fit onto and engage ends 22 of carrying case 12. End caps 18 are further configured to be utilized as cups which are placed in a center of scoring boxes 16 for reception of one or more well tossed washers 20 as further described herein. As such, end caps 18 and cups 18 are referred to interchangeably herein.
  • For storage, and as described above, scoring boxes 16 are configured to be rolled up into a substantial cylindrical shape and inserted into carrying case 12 for storage. In the preferred embodiment, the rolling of scoring boxes 16 will result in a bundle 24 of a size that fits snugly within carrying case 12. In one embodiment, washers 20 are then placed within carrying case 12 at one or more ends 26 of bundles 24 and end caps 18 are placed onto ends 22 of carrying case 12. While any number of embodiments exist, in one preferred embodiment, end caps 18 are configured with an inside diameter that fits snugly around an outside diameter of carrying case 12. In another embodiment, outside diameter of carrying case 12 and inside diameter of end caps 18 are configured with molded protrusions (not shown) and indentations respectively that allow for a snap fit of end caps 18 onto carrying case 12. Still another embodiment incorporates threads on the outside diameter of carrying case 12 and inside diameter of end caps 18. Again, many embodiments for end caps 18 and carrying case 12 exist, and in one particular embodiment both are formed from a plastic, which allows for easy coloring of the various pieces. The various pieces may also be formed from a clear material. In another embodiment, end caps 18 and carrying case 12 are constructed from a lightweight metal. In one embodiment, strap 14 has an adjustable length allowing for sizing to the particular person carrying game 10.
  • FIG. 2 is a top view of one unassembled scoring box 16 for portable washer tossing game 10 (shown in FIG. 1). In one embodiment, scoring boxes 16 are made from a material that is easy to roll up for storage, also lays out flat easily without attempting to retain the rolled up configuration. One preferred material is a sheet rubber. Other materials includes certain sheet plastics and certain heavier woven materials that can retain a shape.
  • Scoring box 16 is a substantially rectangular sheet with a plurality of narrow rectangular slots 30 formed therein. Rectangular slots 30 allow the folding of side walls 32 and side walls 34 upward to form the walls of scoring box 16. The formation of narrow slots 30 also result in side walls 34 having end tabs 36 at each end which are then folded around respective ends 38 of side wall 32 to substantially complete assembly of vertical walls of scoring boxes 16. In one embodiment, scoring box 16 includes retention devices 40 near ends 38 of side walls 32 and on tabs 36. Retention devices 40 are utilized such that end tabs 36 remain in substantial contact with side walls 32 upon folding. Examples of retention devices 40 include adhesives which can be easily separated, hook and loop type fasteners, snap fitting fasteners, and other similar fasteners. It should be noted that FIG. 2 is one of many possible configurations for side walls 32 and other configurations are contemplated, for example, each side wall 32 and 34 can be configured with a single end tab 36 configured to engage the adjacent side wall 32 and 34. In another embodiment (not shown), side walls 32 and 34 are respectively configured with a slot formed therein for insertion of a folded portion of the adjacent side wall.
  • A cup mount 42 is located near the substantial center of scoring box 16 for placement of one of end caps 18. Cup mount 42 is also selected from one of the adhesives, and hook and loop type, snap fitting, and similar fasteners above described. The arrows indicate one of the directions from which scoring box 16 can be rolled up into the substantial cylindrical shape.
  • FIG. 3 is a diagram of an alternative embodiment of a scoring box 50 for a washer tossing game. Scoring box 50 is also formed from a sheet material, for example, sheet rubber, that that be rolled into a substantially cylindrical shape for storage, for example, within carrying case 12 (shown in FIG. 1). Scoring box 50 includes a substantially square bottom portion 52 having four sides 54. Scoring box 50 further includes a plurality of substantially rectangular side portions 56, each side portion 56 having a first end 58 and a second end 60 opposite first end 58. Upon folding, each side portion 56 extends upward from the respective side 54 of bottom portion 52 forming walls. First ends 58 are configured for attachment to adjacent second ends 60 such that the resulting walls retain their substantially upward fold. A cup mount 42 is located near the substantial center of scoring box 50 for placement of one of end caps 18 as described above and utilizing the fastening methods described above.
  • FIG. 4 is a view of the scoring box 16 of FIG. 2, assembled, and with an end cap 18 placed therein. FIG. 4 illustrates end tabs 36 of side walls 34 wrapped around and affixed to ends 38 (not shown in FIG. 4) of side walls 32 to form the substantially vertical walls of scoring box 16. In addition, FIG. 4 includes a view of an optional accessory which can be utilized with scoring boxes 16. Specifically, on side wall 42 a substantially rigid channel 70 is fitted on to a substantial portion of top 72 of side wall 42. As scoring boxes 16 are fabricated from materials that are easily rolled for insertion into carrying case 12, for example, sheet rubber, side walls 32 and 34 tend to be somewhat flexible when scoring boxes 16 are assembled. Therefore, the striking of side walls 32 and 34 by a tossed washer 20 may tend to flex the struck wall, resulting in a less than true bounce off the wall. Further, the flexible nature of the sheet rubber may result in a side wall 32 and 34 that is bowed in one or more of the vertical and horizontal directions upon assembly of scoring box 16. To provide a solution, individual rigid channels 70 may be inserted onto respective side walls 32 and 34 to provide an improved shape and rigidity to the walls of scoring boxes 16.
  • FIG. 5 is an end view of one embodiment of a rigid channel 70. As shown, rigid channel 70 includes two substantially parallel side members 74 connected by an end portion 76 thereby forming channel 78 which engages portion of side walls 32 and 34 of scoring boxes 16. In a particular embodiment, channel 78 has a width that provides for a snug fit with side walls 32 and 34 such that rigid channel 70 is easily held in place on one of the side walls of scoring box 16. In a particular embodiment, portable washer tossing game 10 includes eight rigid channels 70, one for each of side walls 32 and 34 of the two scoring boxes 16 of game 10. For storage within carrying case 12, rigid channels 70 are placed within the substantial cylindrical shape of rolled up scoring boxes 16. Alternatively, scoring boxes 16 are rolled around the group of rigid channels 70 and placed within carrying case 12. Rigid channels 70 are also operable with scoring box 50 (shown in FIG. 3).
  • FIG. 6 is a bottom view of cup 18 for portable washer tossing game 10. FIG. 6 illustrates a retention device 80 which retains end cap 18 on cup mount 42 (shown in FIG. 2). Retention device 80 also is one of the adhesives, snap fitting fasteners, and hook and loop type fasteners above described.
  • FIG. 7 is a view illustrating operation of portable washer tossing game 10. Scoring boxes 16 are placed a distance apart with end caps 18 inserted therein. The players toss washers 20 from an area 90 near or behind one scoring box 16 towards the other scoring box 16 attempting to land the washers inside the other scoring box 16 and preferably within end cap 18, for a higher point value, similar to the game of horseshoes.
  • Washer tossing game 10 provides a solution to the problems of storing and portability of known washer tossing games by providing scoring boxes 16 that can be substantially reduced in size as compared to known washer tossing game scoring boxes. In addition, game 10 provides storage for washers 20 and utilizes end caps 18 as both part of the game and as part of the storage solution. Embodiments where the retention device utilized for holding end caps 18 in place are also utilized for attachment to the carrying strap 14 are also contemplated. Other embodiments of game 10 are also foreseen, for example, embodiments where cups 18 and rigid channels 70 are formed from a glow in the dark material or incorporate other lighting methods for playing game 10 after sunset. It is believed that the portability and storage capabilities herein described will result in an increased popularity to washer tossing.
  • While the invention has been described in terms of various specific embodiments, those skilled in the art will recognize that the invention can be practiced with modification within the spirit and scope of the claims.
