  • Patent number: 4961580
    Abstract: An action game including a receptacle styled as a bathtub having a motor driven impeller in the bottom of the bathtub. Disposed above and adjacent one end of the bathtub is a tank with a hinged lid in which a plurality of different colored balls are stored. A spigot extends from the tank over one upper edge of the bathtub providing an outlet duct for the balls to pass from the tank into the bathtub. Simultaneous release of the balls from the tank and turning on of the battery motor is controlled by a handle that pivots a gate inside the tank and completes an electrical circuit between the battery and the motor. Each player is provided with a suction cup plunger having a hollow shaft handle which the player uses to pick balls of a preselected color out of the bathtub as the balls are rotated around by the impeller.
