Claims.

This invention relates to new and useful improvements in games.

The object of the present invention is a game simulating some of the characteristics of golf 5 without requiring a playing surface as large and as carefully prepared and maintained as is necessary with golf.

In golf, variations in the play are determined by the position of the ball necessitating the use of different clubs. In the game forming the object of the present invention similar variations are introduced not by the use of different clubs, but by varying the object to be propelled.

The nature of the invention will more clearly appear from the following detailed description of a preferred embodiment thereof which is illustrated in the drawing in the following manner:

Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a tee, stick (object to be propelled) and club in the playing position;

Fig. 2 is a side elevation, and Fig. 2a a vertical cross-section of one of the sticks which may be used in the game;

Fig. 3 and 3a are two different side elevations, and Fig. 3b a vertical cross-section of a second type of stick used in my game;

Figs. 4, 4a and 4b are similar views of a third stick used in my game;

Fig. 5 is a side elevation of the club, and

Fig. 6 illustrates a carrying case for the club, sticks and tee used in my game.

Referring to Fig. 1, the playing surface or tee is a block 1, preferably of wood, having a flat bottom which will rest on the ground and a slop- 35 ing top 2, part of which is roughened as indicated I at 3. The roughened surface may be produced by fastening sandpaper or the like to the surface 2. The stick to be used is placed on the surface 3 and will be held by the surface against accidental displacement.

The stick is positioned with one end projecting beyond the tee, and the projecting end is hit with club 4. The distance which the stick will cover and its trajectory will depend on the shape of the stick and the manner in which the blow is delivered. In Figs. 2 and 2a is illustrated a stick 5 having rounded ends, a fiat bottom and a curving or arched top. The stick is placed with its fiat surface on the roughened portion of the tee, with a length protruding beyond the edge of the tee, so proportioned to the rest that when hit by the club 4 it will travel along the trajectory and to the distance calculated by the player. It should be noted that owing to its rounded ends, when the stick 5 hits the ground it will roll over New York, N. Y.

1936, Serial No. 85,057

and over, and the contours of the stick are such as to insure alow trajectory when properly hit by the club. Therefore, the stick 5 is used to gain distance in the game. It should be noted at this point that as best shown in Fig. 1, the club 4 has an oval cross-section which was found best for the purposes of the game.

The stick 6 illustrated in Figs. 3, 3a. and 31) has substantially the same cross-sectional contour as stick 5, but the ends are pointed as indicated at I and 8. As best shown in Fig. 3a,, the ends I and 8 are pointed in opposite directions. Due to the shape of this stick 6 and its pointed ends, it will have a high trajectory and the pointed ends will keep it from rolling very far.

Stick 9 illustrated in Figs. 4, 4a and 417 has a flat bottom and one end Ill pointed, the other end ll being rounded. The vertical cross-section as shown in Fig. 4b is near end II. The center portion between the two ends is cut out, as indicated at I2, providing a fiat surface l3 which may be placed on the roughened surface 3. The stick 9, therefore, may be played either with its bottom resting on the surface 3 or with the top surface I3 resting thereon. Two different effects may thus be obtained.

It will be noted that when using a circle as a goal or hole, substantially the same effects may be obtained as in golf. The sticks will never cover distances greater than about one-third that covered by a golf ball. My game may be played on rocky, uneven ground and misplays will cause deviations from the intended course as great as in golf. Unless properly chosen, positioned and impelled, sticks will travel to one side, beyond or short of the goal. Owing to the wedge shape of tee I, it may be positioned in accordance with the ground surface so as to insure the desired trajectory of the stick.

Fig. 6 illustrates a carrying case l5 of canvas or the like having pockets I6 for the sticks 5, G and 9, and a pocket I! for the tee l. The case is carried on a belt l8 which is provided also with a hook IS on which club 4 may be hung.

What I claim is:

1. A tip-cat comprising an elongated body having a pointed end entirely within the plane of the body and having a flat bottom and provided with a transverse recessed top.

2. A tip-cat comprising an elongated body pointed at one end and rounded at its opposite end, the ends being entirely within the plane of the body and having a flat bottom and provided with a recessed top.

3. A tip-cat comprising an elongated body having a pointed end entirely within the plane of the body and having a flat bottom and provided 7 with a" recessed top having a fiat surface continuing from its recessed portion.

4. A tip-cat comprising an elongated body having a pointed end entirely within the plane of the body and having a flat bottom and. provided with a transverse recessed top having a fiat in-
