  • Patent number: 9498711
    Abstract: A multi-player, multi-screens, electronic gaming platform and system is disclosed, having a game board having a main display screen for displaying a portion of the game layout that is shared by the plurality of players, and a plurality of personal game terminals, each personal game terminal assigned to a respective player and having an auxiliary display screen for displaying a portion of the game layout that is associated with the respective player. Communication between the main display and the terminals, and among terminals directly is enabled. Also enabled is seamless transfer of objects between the display screens as triggered by a game step or interactive inputs. Coded rules associated with the transferred objects can indicate where on the screen the digitized game object should appear, at what size should it be displayed, special animation or audio that should accompany the transfer of the digitized game object, etc.

  • Patent number: 8485883
    Abstract: Electronic gaming system with main monitor displaying public part of game and several terminals, each operating in gaming or controller mode. In gaming mode the terminal displays private parts of the game to user, and user's actions control object on terminal. In controller mode, main display is replicated on terminal display, and user's actions on private terminal are replicated on main display. Example, moving tile on the terminal will send “move tile” to move the same tile on the main monitor and all other terminals. The terminals support zoom and board shift to access any part of the bigger board. It also supports store and forward functions, enabling user to prepare next move privately before sending to main monitor. When the terminal is in controller mode, its processor may constantly synchronize the view of the terminal with the main monitor.

  • Patent number: 8480469
    Abstract: An electronic gaming system configured for executing an electronic game using physical gadget. The electronic gaming system has a gaming console which runs an electronic game. A physical gadget has a wireless transmitter that transmitting an outcome value. The main console receives the outcome value over wireless communication from the gadget, and advances the flow of the game according to the outcome value. Examples of the physical gadget may be a die, a clock, and a game piece, having a transmitter that transmits to the console an outcome value, e.g., rolling of a die or time from a clock.

  • Patent number: 8255513
    Abstract: A topology information system, comprising a topology collection sub-system, a topology database, a topology query sub-system and a topology correlation sub-system. The topology collection sub-system includes at least one topology discovery agent. The topology collection sub-system automatically collects topology information from at least one topology layer of at least one managed world. The topology database is adapted to store the topology information collected by the topology collection sub-system. The topology query sub-system is adapted to query the topology information stored in the topology database using a topology pattern query created by a user. The topology correlation sub-system operates in parallel to the topology query sub-system, constantly monitoring the managed world for events and updating the Information Base accordingly.
