FIELD GAME.
No. 443,427. Patented Dec. 23, 1890.
WITH E55 E5 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
IVILLIAM IVARREN BROWN, OF NEIV YORK, N. Y.
FIELD GAME.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 443,427, dated December 23, 1890.
Application filed January 2, 1890. Serial No. 335,580- (No model.)
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that 1, WILLIAM WARREN BROWN, a citizen of the United States, residing at the city, county, and State of New York, have invented a new and useful Field Game, of which the following is a specification.
Thisinvention pertains to a certain new and improved game for outdoor exercise; and it consists in a series of circularly-arranged indicating-stakes and a central rotative disk having a diametrical pivotal bearing and designed to be turned bya ball in play,substantially as hereinafter fully set forth, and particularly pointed out in the claims.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is a diagrammatical View illustrative of niyimproved game. Fig. 2 is an enlarged detail view of the central rotative disk and its support. Fig. 3 is a similar view of one of the stationary or counting disks.
In carrying out my invention a ring or circle A is first formed, and in the center thereof is placed a rotative disk B. This disk is held supported, so as to be free to revolve at any point, on a vertical post a by a collar a, having a setscrew a the disk being provided with a vertical hole or opening for insertion on the post. The lower end of post a is pointed, so as to be readily forced in place.
From the center of ring or circle A are drawn a series of radiating lines 0, forming corresponding spaces or divisions 01 throughout the circle. At the center of each space d, at the periphery of the circle, is located a stationary diskD, having a pointed spindle or shank cl for insertion in the ground. These stationary disks are numberedsay from one (i) to six (6) -according'to the number of radiating lines, one half of the spaces of the circle being provided with duplicate numbers of the other half. In this manner the numbers are correspondingly arranged.
In practice'a player, standing at the outer periphery of the circle on a line parallel with one face of the rotative disk, throws aball at the latter so as to hit it on either side of its vertical center and cause it to revolve on its supporting-post. The object of the game is to score the highest points, and this is determined by counting the numbers of the stationary disks toward which the side edges of the rotative disk point when the same ceases to revolve.
From the foregoing description it will be seen that I have produced a field or outdoor game of great interest to a player and one promot-ive of skill and affording moderate eX- ercise.
I claim as my invention- 1. A game apparatus consisting of a series of circularly-arranged stationary numbered disks, a central rotative disk having a diametrical pivotal bearing, and a ball or other striking device for rotating said latter disk on its bearing, substantially as set forth.
2. In a game of the character herein described, a central rotative disk having a diametrical pivotal bearing, in combination with a ball or other device for striking said disk on either side of such pivotal bearing, substantially as set forth.
3. In a game of thecharacter herein described, the central rotative disk having a vertical hole or opening extending diametrically therethrough, a supporting-post therefor projected through said hole or opening, and an adj ustable collar on said post, in combina tion with a ball or other striking device, substantially as set forth.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature In presence of two witnesses.
W. WARRENBROWN.
