  • Patent number: 4979748
    Abstract: A token aligning three-dimensional strategy game for a number of players includes aligned tubes defining passageways with each tube having an opaque upper portion and a transparent lower portion. Graphically distinguished sets of tokens are provided for each player. The tokens are capable of passing from the top of the opaque upper portion through to the bottom of the transparent lower portion. However, passage of the tokens is blocked by a removable pin extending through all of the passageways so that tokens are retained in the opaque upper portion until the pin is pulled. Each player, in turn, place tokens in the passageways attempting to obtain a predetermined number of the tokens in a line. Once a player thinks the required alignment has been achieved in the opaque upper portion, the player pulls the pin and all of the tokens drop down into the transparent lower portion to disclose whether or not the alignment has been achieved.
