' 0. 1. BURTIS- APPARATUS FOR A PARLOB. GAME.
.APPLIOATION FILED 001. 7, 1909.
Y PatentedFeb. 21, 1911.
INVENTOR CHARLES FREDERICK BURTIS, OF TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA.
ABPARATUS FOR A PARLOR GAME.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Feb. 21, 1911.
Application filed October 7, 1909. Serial No. 521,574.
which the following is the specification.
My invention relates to a certain new and useful improved apparatus for a parlor game, which I term Crusades, and the object of the invention is to devise an interesting game both for adults and children, which may be played on an ordinary parlor or dining room table.
My game consists of two crescent-shaped bars one located within the other and provided with a cross barrier centrally disposed in the spaces between them and semi-barriers extending across the mouths of the spaces, flag poles pivoted on the inner crescent within the semi-barriers and each provided with an arm at the bottom, and a flag at the top, the spaces between the crescentshaped bars being designed to have placed therein men representing the opposing armies of the Cross and the Crescent, and a toy cannon and ball may be provided for playing the game by shooting down the men and lowering the flags as hereinafter more particularly explained. The cannon forms no part of my invention as the ball may be thrown by hand.
Figure 1, is a perspective view showing my improved game set up. Fig. 2, is a view of the flag and pole for showing the manner in which the flag is lowered.
In the drawings like letters of reference indicate corresponding parts in each figure.
A and B are the two crescent shaped bars preferably made of wood and connected together centrally by hinges A and B, so that they may be folded for convenience'in shipping. The hinges are in alinement with each other as indicated. The crescentshaped bars A flare outwardly at A at the ends and the crescent-shaped bars B extend inwardly at B at the ends, thereby providing flaring mouths into the spaces C located between the bars. I
D is a cross barrier between the opposing armies, which are represented by men E and F. The cross barrier is resilient to a 5 it will rebound.
The standard bearers of the army are provided with flags at each side as indicated and one of the men on each side E and F is preferably made of cork with a weighted bottom or disk E and F which will render it problematical. as to whether the man will rise to the perpendicular or not.
It will be noticed that the men are placed at different positions within the spaces and barriers and that an advance guard is placed at the mouth at each side. The men may be disposed as may be thought most advantageous by the players, so as to prevent them being struck.
Cushions G are provided within each space in order to provide for the ball bouncing on them within the space and rendering the game more interesting.
2 are barriers located within the mouths and bridging the space at each side and having depending portions 2 with which the ball may perchange come in contact when it is shot.
The flag pole H is inserted in an orifice B in the crescent B at each side within the barrier and is provided with an arm H, which is designed to be struck, if possible, by the ball.
H is a flag, which is secured on a split sleeve H normally supported on a staple or pin H on the flag pole.
l/Vhen the ball strikes the arm H quickly it throws the flag pole around within the sleeve until the staple H comes opposite the slit of the sleeve when the flag will drop as will be readily understood. The ball may be shot from a toy cannon or thrown as desired.
The game of Crusade represents a battle between the opposing armies representing the Cross and the Crescent.
The rules' are as follows :-1st. It is played on a table with cannon and marble by two or more players, or by choosing sides with two or more persons on each side. 2nd. Each side has the privilege of placing his men in as diflicult a position as possible, either singly, or in squads out of the way of the enemys shot. 3rd. Before placing the men the players are to decide which shall fight for the Cross and which for the Crescent. lth. Each player has one shot alternately at the men. 5th. Care must be taken to remove from the field each man as soon as he is down with the exception of the weighted man, which represents a wounded soldier, who may by chance be resuscitated. 6th. After the men are all down on one side the victor must complete his victory by lowering the enemys flag on the inner wall. 7th. If unsuccessful in the first shot the op-' ponent may continue his efforts to win the game each player having but one shot alter nately as heretofore and whoever lowers the flag in the inner wall wins the battle, and leaves his colors flying.
What I claim as my invention is.
1. An improved parlor game comprising two crescent-shaped bars arranged so that the inner crescent-shaped bar is spaced equidistant from the outer bar, a central barrier connecting the two bars at the back of the space, semi-barriers extending across the mouths of the spaces connecting the bars, flag poles pivoted on one of the bars and havmg outwardly extending arms extending into the spaces between the bars, a flag slidably mounted on each pole, means for holding the flag in an elevated position and means for allowing it to be lowered when the arm is struck. I
2. An improved parlor game comprising two crescent-shaped bars arranged so that the inner crescent-shaped bar is spaced equidistant from the outer bar, a central barrier connecting the two bars at the back of the space, semi-barriers extending across the mouths of the spaces connecting the bars, flag poles suitably supported and having outwardly extending arms extending into the spaces between the bars, a split sleeve slidably mounted on each pole, a flag carried by the sleeve, a supporting pin on the pole for holding the sleeve in raised position and men suitably disposed within the space formed by the bars, one ofthe men on each side having a weighted bottom.
