According to the present invention an appliance for playing a game comprises a rod, post or the like upright members provided with a base and a handle at the upper end, and having a plurality of pegs projecting therefrom at different levels, and a ring on said upright member large enough to pass along the rod over the pegs with a small clearance.

to 'move the ring from its initial position at the bottom of the rod to the highest peg.

An appliance according to the present invention is shown in the accompanying drawing in which I is the rod supported on a base 2 and provided with a handle 3. From the rod project at equal or unequal intervals and in different directions pegs 4 which may be numbered with an appropriate score increasing with the height of the respective peg from the base 2. A ring 5 which is of suificient diameter to pass the pegs 4 with a small clearance rests in the initial position'on the base 2. By holding the rod by the handle and jerking it or otherwise moving it rapidly in the upright position the ring 5 may be made to move up the rod to engage one of the pegs 4 as shown in chain line, to make a score according to that shown against the peg.

The appliance may be made from any suitable material, for example wood, match tubing, rod or the like and the ring may be made from similar material or from rubber composition or other suitable material.

What We claim is:

1. An appliance for playing games, comprising an elongated upright member having a relatively small base terminating at the lower end and a handle at the upper end protruding laterally from said member, whereby said member may be jerked up and down by the player, and a plurality of pegs at successive intervals from bottom to top of said member, successive pegs projecting in different directions each from the next preceding one, and a ring on said member having. an inside diameter less than the diameter of said base and greater than the combined length of any peg and diameter of the said member.

2. An appliance for playing games, comprising an elongated upright member having a base at the lower end and a handle at the upper end both transverse to said member, a ring on said member, said base and handle retaining said ring irremovably on said member, and pegs on said member intermediate the base and handle over which said ring is adapted to pass in playing the game.
