GAME-BOARD.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 648,561, dated May 1, 1900.

Application filed April 3, 1899. Serial No. 711 ,520, (No model.)

My invention relates to game-boards of the class in which disks are propelled acrossthe face of the board. It is an improvement upon my game-board illustrated in Patent No.

602,179, of April 12, 1898, and design Patent No. 27,788, of October 26, 1897.

The objectof the invention is to insure the retention of a disk in a pocket under all circumstances.

The invention consists,essentially,of a tube, of cloth or similar material, filled with a nonresilientsubstance and applied in a recess of a corner of the board over each pocket- Figure 1 is a perspective view of a portion of my game-board, and Fig. 2 is a vertical section through the corner of the board.

lindicates the face of the board; 2, the rim; 3, the pocket, in this case a net pocket; 4, a carom-cushion 5, the curved corner-piece; 6, a tube, of cloth or similar material, filled with sand or a similarnon-resilient substance, and 7 a wire lying in a recess and sustaining the pocket.

I have found by experiment that a disk if propelled with great force across my gameboard will sometimes jump out of the pocket. With the new feature located in substantially therelation shown the fabric of the tube will first take up the force of the impact, which is then transmitted to the sand or similar material, so that the disk loses its impetus and drops into the pocket. I may secure the tube in various ways and may make it of various sizes. I prefer, however, to have it conform in length with the curved corner-piece and to lie in a recess of the corner-piece substantially in line with the carom-cushion.

I preferably secure the tube in place by means of cement,

The tube may be formed in any suitable manner-as, for example, by sewing together the sides of a stripand after the tube is filled the ends may be secured in any manner, as by sewing.

Having thus fully described my invention, what I desire to secure by Letters Patent is 1. In a game-board, the combination with abase,rim and corner-pocket of a dead or nonresilient separate cushion substantially covering the face of the rail at the point of impact.

2. In a game-board, the combination with a base, rim and corner-pocket of a cushion comprising a texile or similar tube filled with a granular substance, and lying above the point of impact.

3. In a game-board, the combination with a base, rim and corner-pocket of a tube of cloth or similar substance containing sand or similar substance, and lying above the pocket in the line of impact, substantially as described.

In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.

HENRY L. HASKELL.
