Application June 10,

2 Claims.

This invention relates to game and card tables and has for one of its objects the provision of a table which is adapted for use in playing such games as backgammon, checkers and other games involving the use of counting tokens and which by novel means may be converted for use as a card table.

Another object of my invention is to provide in a game table particularly rigid supporting leg structure which may be quickly and easily folded up when the table is not in use.

The invention will be fully and comprehensively understood from a consideration of the following detailed description when read in connection with the accompanying drawing which forms part of the application, with the understanding, however, that the improvement is capable of extended application and is not confined to the exact showing of the drawing nor to the precise construction described and, therefore, such changes and modifications may be made therein as do not afiect the spirit of the invention nor exceed the scope thereof as expressed in the appended claims.

In the drawing:

Fig. 1 is a plan view of my game table adapted for use in games employing chips or other counting tokens.

Fig. 2 is a fragmentary plan view of my game table adapted for use in playing cards.

Fig. 3 is a front elevational view with the table top in section taken on line 3-3 of Fig. 1.

Fig. 4 is an end elevational view of my table as shown in Fig. 3; and

Fig. 5 is a side elevational view showing the table legs partly collapsed.

Referring now to the drawing for a more detailed description thereof, the numeral 6 indicates a table top. The upper surface is marked off and colored to facilitate the playing of such games as backgammon. Many such amusement games involve the use of counting chips either for the purpose of keeping the actual score of the various players or for the purpose of making wagers as to the outcome of the game. In order to provide convenient facilities for holding such counting chips, my game table is provided at its quadrilateral periphery with bordering strips I, one for each edge of the table and hingedly mounted thereto so that they may be moved from their position shown in Fig. 1 to the positions shown in Figs. 2 and 5, in which the underside of the strip 6 becomes flush with the table top 6. The ends of each of the strips 7 are mitred so that when the strips are in place on the table 1935, Serial No. 25,870

top the corners thereof present a neat structure and, further, when the strips 1 are folded out the mitred ends form a beveled corner, as shown in Fig. 2. In the upper surface of the strips 1 are cut a series of recesses 8 which are provided for holding the counting chips in a convenient manner.

To further provide compartments for the placement of the counting chips as well as to effect a substantial subdivision for the playing surface of my game table, a central strip 9 is provided. At each end of the strip 9 are formed lugs I0 which engage in similarly formed recesses suitably disposed on the inner edge of opposed strips I. In the upper surface of the strip 9 is cut a series of recesses H for the purposes just -mentioned. The recesses II are arranged in two parallel rows so that a greater number of players may use the game table which, by the placement of the central strip 9, is divided into two substantially similar arrangements. Removal of the center strip 9 makes the entire table top accessible for playing other new games in that the portion of the board under the strip 9 is also appropriately marked.

Reference is now directed to the supporting leg structure of my game table as illustrated in Figs. 3, 4 and 5. This leg structure embodies a pair of substantially flat frame structures l2, each swingably mounted on the underside of the table top 6 adjacent opposed edges thereof and a collapsible brace or spreader 13 whereby the frame structures 12 are held upright in substantial parallelism to each other.

Each of the frame structures l2 in its preferred embodiment is formed of a single piece of straight rod bent at two points M equi-distant from the ends of the rod so that the two projecting members cross each other. The frame structure I2 is then formed into a. substantially rigid unit by twisting each of the crossed members around the other, as shown at 15. The twist I5 is so located as to form projecting legs I6 at the free ends of which spheres H are attached for suitable contact with the floor. Each of the frame structures I2 is swingably mounted on the table top 6 by means of the angle brackets l8, into the aperture IQ of which the rod comprising the frame structure l2 has been inserted prior to the complete formation thereof. One of the sides of each angle bracket I3 is secured to the underside of the table top and the projecting leg of the bracket is so cut out as to form a stop 20 adapted to engage the outer surface of the frame structure in the upright p0- sition of the latter. The frame structures I2 are otherwise free to be swung against the bottom of the table, as indicated in Fig. 5.

The collapsible brace or spreader I3 has its one end hingedly connected by the lug 2I to the twisted portion I5 of one of the frame structures E2. The brace I3 comprises two straight members pivotally connected to each other by the pin 22 and provided with a stop lug 23 which engages with a pin 24 to maintain the component members of the brace I3 in alignment with each other. The free end of the brace I3 is formed in a fork 25, the prongs thereof being arranged to engage around the twist I5 of the other frame structure I2. When the folding of the supporting leg structure of my game table is required, the members of the brace I3 are folded as a jack knife against each other, thus permitting each of the frame structures I2 to be swung against the underside of the table top, as indicated in 5, thus forming a composite structure requiring only a minimum of space for its storage.

What is claimed as new is:

1. A game table comprising a top and two 25 pairs of legs supporting the top, each pair of legs being pivotally mounted to swing under the top and formed from a single rod bent to provide a portion under and parallel with the top, portions converging downwardly below the horizontal portion and twisted together at their meeting point, portions diverging below the twisting, and a brace pivotally connected at one end to one of said pairs of legs and releasably engaging the other of said pairs of legs.

2. A game table comprising a top'and two pairs of legs supporting the top, each pair of legs being pivotally mounted to swing under the top and formed from a single rod bent to provide a portion under and parallel with the top, portions converging downwardly below the horizontal portion and twisted together at their meeting point, portions diverging below the twisting, and a brace pivotally connected at one end to one of said pairs of legs and releasably engaging the other of said pairs of legs, said brace consisting of two parts pivotally connected together at their inner ends and adapted to be folded one on the other.
