' SIMULATED BASKETBALL GAME Filed sept. 27, 1949 2 SHEETS-SHEET 2 foam rubber F/G. 4 l Fla. 5

INVENTORS Wimll- Patented Sept. 23, 1952 a game which combines the principal elementsK offthe' old' Yand well-known.- games'r of tiddle-,V-dywinks-.and dice with many -ofthe principal elements-of the modern game-'ofbasket ball; f

` Another-object of theinventionfis to provide a portable table gamefsimilari to basket ball combining skill and chance, tobe played between competing sides, comprising-one or moreplayers to` aV side, 'which mayA be easily dismantled and compactly folded up and stored when not in use.

Other objects and advantages of the invention will be apparent during the course of the followy ing description:

In the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification and in which like numerals are employed to designate like parts throughout the same,

Fig. 1 is a face view of the basket supporting element which element also acts as a backboard and contains the scoring device as seen on the line I-I of Fig. 2;

Fig. 2 is a top plane View of the invention as assembled;

Fig. 3 is a side view of the invention taken o line 3 3 of Fig. 2;

Fig. 4 is a perspective view of the disc;

Fig. 5 is a perspective view of a die. In the preferred embodiment of the invention three such dice, two colored red and one colored white, are used;

Fig. 6 is a perspective view of the basket.

In the drawings, wherein for the purpose of illustration is shown a preferred embodiment of my invention, the reference I designates a rectangular transparent body portion which acts as a backstop and which supports a basket 8, and scoring devices, 9- and III. The scoring device 9, is round and bears numbers on its perimeter from 1 through 12 inclusive. The companion scoring device I0 is also round and bears numbers on its perimeter from 0 through 9, inclusive. Two sets of scoring devices, 9-I0, and 9*-I0, one set for each opposing side, are provided. The scoring devices 9I0 and 9-I0 are respectively attached to the back of the body portion I by means of pins I I and II', which allow them to be rotated freely. References I2 and I2' indicate ^SammieSKEeeeteeeMe t;

the two screwsonf theplayingjfield and'thescr'ews v laid afltt'edstrip of' resilient materia-1 'arcirfasf4 foam rubberVA IS; covered; withfapiece `or elotlj I 1". Theebasket -Bgis so g`fashioned" vthat the ends', f the basket ring fforr'ntwo prongs', oneofff' which" curves upward as illustrated at 2| and one of which is curved downward as illustrated at 22.

In assembling the game these prongs are removably engaged in a tted slot, reference 23 in the backstop 1.

The game is played by the rst contestant rolling three dice, one of which is illustrated 1n Fig. 5, to determine the coordinates for the position on the playing area from which he will shoot for the basket. The total of the numbers appearing on the two red dice indicates the vertical position on they playing field.

The number appearing on the white die indicates the horizontal position on the playing eld.

Thus, for example, if the numbers thrown on the red dice totaled 9 and the number thrown on the white die were 4 the contestant making the play would have as his shooting position the square which is vertically the ninth square from the backboard on the length of the playing eld and horizontally the fourth square from the left side of the playing field. For purposes of facilitating the location of starting positions the boxes have been numbered on the length and on the top width of the playing eld as illustrated in Fig. 2.

After securing his shooting position the contestant places one of the hard circular discs, illustrated by Fig. 4, on that position, and then, manually, with another like disc, seeks to jump the flrst disc, in the manner of tiddle-dy-winks, through the basket.

If, when in throwing the dice to secure his shooting position, a player throws two dice bearing the same number, it is a foul which entitles the players opponent to a free shot for the basket from the line on the playing eld marked Foul Shot (Fig. 2). If each of thethree dice thrown turn up the same number, it is a double or personal foul which entitles the players opponent to two free shots for the basket from the foul line. In the event a foul is assessed against a player he is allowed to throw the dice again to secure a the disc outward to another position on the play- Y ing field and then shooting for the basket from his new position.

Scoring is similar to the scoring utilizedin basket ball, i. e., two points for a basket; one point for the successful execution of a foul shot. yThe scores 'of the opposing sides are kept on lthe scoring device attached to the backboard (Fig. 1). While certain features of this invention have been described in detail for purposes of illustra? tion, it is of course to be understoodthat various changes maybe made in the apparatus as herein disclosed or in the manner or l, method of play without departingfrom the'spirit of the invention as it is defined inthe appended claim, Y

-vHaving thus described my invention, what we claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:

A game comprising in combination, a playing area comprising a rectangular rigidbase member having a resilient material o-n a surfacethereof,

a cloth covering said resilient material and base member, said cloth having markings thereon dividing said area into squares, the said squares 4 lying along a length and width thereof having designating indicia marked thereupon corresponding in character to the designating indicia on the surfaces of dice for determining the square in the playing area constituting the region of play, a -backboard attached to the playing area, a basket attached to the backboard, score indicating means carried by said backboard, disks adapted to be `manually shot through the basket from the playing area in the manner of tiddlywinks, and three dice, one being of a color distinct from the others, the die of distinctive color having indicia on each surface thereof conforming with the indicia marked in the squares along WALTER WATSON WALTERJ..
