GAME-BOARD.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 711 5,796, dated December-16, 1902.

' Application filed April 3, 1 902. Serial No. 10l,l95. (No model.)

To all whom. itmrty concern.

Be it known'that I, HENRY-L. HASKELL, a

citizen of the United States, residing at the city of Ludington, in the county of Mason and State of Michigan, have invented certain new anduseful Improvements in Game-Boards, of which'the following is a specification.

This invention relates to improvements in game-boards. It relates particularly to gameb'oards constructed mainly of sheet metal.

In game-boards known-as crokinole-and those of the class shown and described in United States Letters'Patent No. 602,179, is-

game-boards are now constructed requires, considerable skill and very expensive mate-- sued to me April 12, '18 98,--it is necessary to have quite an extensive playing-surface,and to produce thisin the manner in which such rial, so that the playing-surface will be satisfactoryand sothat they check, which destroys the utility of the same. Such game-boards are therefore quite expensive.

It is the object of this invention to provide an impro'vedgame-board of the class described, constructed mainly of sheet metal,

.which shall be economical to produce and ,light and at the same time very strong and durable.

' Another object is to construct a game-board of wood and metal, so that the advantages of both shall be secured to the fullest extent and in an eflicient, practical, and sightly game-board. g

Still another object is to construct a game: board having its playing-surface of metal in such manner that its resonant quality is over-. come.

I accomplish the objects of my invention by' the devices and means described in the following specification.

- The invention is clearly defined and pointed out in the claims.

A structure embodying the features of my invention is fully illustrated in the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this speci- 'fication, in which structure shown in Fig. 1.

Figure 1 is a plan view of a structure embodying the features of my invention. Fig.

Fig. 4 is an enlarged detail view of one of the cornerpockets and means for supporting the same, taken on a line correspondingto line ner of the main board A before the pocket is placed in position. Fig. 6 is a detail sectional view taken on-aline corresponding to line 6 '6'of Fig. 4. Fig. 7 is a detail plan view corresponding to that shown in Fig. 5 of a modificationofthe means-of retaining the 'Fig. 8 is a detail sectional view taken ona' line corresponding to line 88of Fig. 7. In the drawings allof the sectional views are taken looking in the direction-0f the little arrows at the ends of the sectional .lines, and similar lettersof reference refer to. similar parts throughout the several views.

- Fig.5 is a detail view of a cor- Referring to the lettered parts of the drawp ings, A represents the main board, which is formed of sheetmetal, the, edges of which are engaged by a groove formed in the rim '0, whichis of wood and is arranged to extend board. The edge of themain board A is turned inwardly upon itself at m and then outwardly,as at n, to form cushions to receive the impact of the playing-disks when propelled across thesur face of the board. I provide a strip of'heavy cloth or felt D, which is secured over the edge of the spring nand serves as a finish and protection to receive the impact of the-playing' disks and also asadeadener. Thisfeature, however, may be omitted and the wood-rim C.will serve as a practical cushion, or thestrip of material D may be secured thereto.

.The surface of the board Ais preferably grooved to mark out a suitable playing-field. board rigid, although this is not an essential, as the rimv 0 holds the same perfectly.

. At each of the corners of the board an opening is cut out, teeth or lugs being left, as is illustrated in Fig. 5, which are clamped around the ring a, which is threaded through a suitable net pocket, as clearly appears in Figs. 4 and 6. The ends of the ring a a are bent outwardly to engage suitable perforations in the rim 0 to. assist in holding the pocket in position, or the ring may be secured at that point by staples.

a and 8 portions of the board A are struck down, as at b, to receive the ring a, after which they are clamped upon the same. On the reverse .ble.

side of the main boardAissecured an auxiliary board for playing the gameof crokinole.

This auxiliary board is also formed of sheet metal and has a raised playing-surface, with suitable deflecting-pins, and is marked 01f with grooves to form ,a playing-field. This auxiliary board is secured to themain board by soldering or other suitable means. Between the two board's is a suitable packing material F, such as sand or the like, which serves as a sound-deadener. The auxiliary board beingsomewhat smaller than the main board A and being formed with a raised surface for playing the game'of crokinole, a suitable ditch is provided when the board is.secured in position. A game-board constructed in this manner is very simple and economical to manufacture and possesses many advantages, as it is strong and light and-very dura- The metal surfacesarecapable of reand also serves as a sound-deadener. In this structure the auxiliary board B may be added at a very small cost and does not add greatly to the weight of the board. The ring a may be-omitted and the pocket secured in-position by clamping the lugs about the cords 'forming the pocketand staples or the like be used for securingthe same to the rim.

I have illustrated and-described my improved game-board in the form I believe to be the most practical. I amfaware, however, that it is capable of great variation in structural details without departing from my invention. Such. variations will readily appearto those skilled in the art to which my invention appertains.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-- 1. In a game-board, the combination of a board A formed "of sheet metal',\having its edges turned inwardly at m and upwardly at n; a rim 0 grooved to receive its edges secured about the board; a strip of cloth secured to the upwardly-turned edge 11; pockets E havinga ring a in the edge thereof, se-

cured in position'in suitable openings in said boardby lugs 22 formed on said board, substantially'as described.

2. In a game boarrh'tho combination of a .board- A formed of sheet metal, having its edges turned inwardly at m and upwardly at 'n; a rim 0 grooved to receive its edges secured about the board; pockets E, having-a ring d in the edge thereof, secured in position in suitable openings in said board by'lngs 1) formed on saidfboard, substantially as described. 3. In a game-board, the combination of a board, A formed of sheet metal, having its edges turned inwardly at m and upwardly at n; a rim 0 grooved to receive its edges secured about the board; pockets secured in position in suitable openings in said board, substantially as described. 7 v

4. In a game-board, the combination of a board A formed of sheet metal; 'a rim 0 groovedto receive the edges of said board; pockets E having'a 'ring a in the edge thereof lugs b formed on said board adapted 'to ,engage said ring and retain said'pocketsin position, substantially asdescribed.

5. In a game-board, the combination of a board A formed of sheet metal; a .rim 0 grooved to receive the edges of saidboard; pockets arranged in suitab.e openings in said board; and lugs formed on said board adapted to engage said pockets to retain them in position; substantially as .desc'ribed.

, 6. In a game-board, the combination of a 'main' board formed of sheet metal; a rim G grooved to receive the edges of. said board;

pockets securedjn position in suitable openings formed in said board A; an auxiliary board B formed of sheet metal secured in position on said board; and. a packingof suitable material between' said boards, for thepurpose specified. v f 7. In a game-board; the combination of a main board formed of sheet-metal; a suitable rim' about the same; pockets; openings formed in said boardto receive said pockets;

lugs formed on said board adapted to engage .said pockets and retain them in position;

and an auxiliary. board formed of sheet metal. secured in position on said board, substantially as described.

' In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal in the presence of two witnesses.
