  • Patent number: 4017074
    Abstract: A game board construction for a simulated baseball game wherein the pitching is controlled by one player and the batting is controlled by another player. The bat is elastically biased and is disposed adjacent home plate, the baseball is in the form of a disc having a flat surface adapted to slide on the playing surface of the board, and the pitching unit is in center field and is arranged to drive the disc on the playing surface toward the bat. A plurality of fielder units are distributed over the playing field to be struck by batted discs, and there are designated areas at various locations on the playing field, each setting forth a play that occurred when a batted baseball comes to rest within its boundary.

  • Patent number: 4017079
    Abstract: A table game having a square board playing surface suitable for several players to be arranged around the board and a plurality of symmetrically disposed pockets at corners and sides of the board, and a plurality of discs adapted to be slidably propelled across the board by flicking the finger of the player against the disc, and a disc being received in the pocket. The board is provided with resilient raised portions to permit carom deflections of the propelled disc. The symmetrical arrangement of the board, pockets and markings permits several players to compete without disadvantage to any one player. Several game variations are achievable.

  • Patent number: 4015848
    Abstract: A game apparatus having an annular play surface with a plurality of indicator play pieces thereon. A shaft is fixed in the center of the play surface. A boom is pivotally attached to the shaft. A cam member is resiliently retained in a stationary position on the shaft adjacent the boom. An arm member is located on the end of the boom over the play surface. A follower attached to the boom member is resiliently biased against the cam member. An actuator in response to an operator rotates the boom around the shaft causing the arm member to follow a determinable irregular path over the play surface and pre ferably move at least one of the play pieces from a first position to a second position.

  • Patent number: 4000900
    Abstract: A cue-game comprising a table edged by uncushioned solid rails, and a number of sliding, generally cup-shaped, circular disks to be shot over said table by means of a cue. Each sliding disk has a resilient, skirt-like flange portion to bounce well and a height substantially exceeding that of the table rails. The inner walls of the table rails lean slightly inwards over the smooth and hard table surface.

  • Patent number: 3992009
    Abstract: An air cushioned table which includes an air bed with a perforated surface to which air under pressure is supplied from below creating a multiplicity of closely spaced air jets upon which a game piece floats. Scoring areas are disposed at opposite ends of the air bed and may include one or more different types of scoring patterns applicable to game play. The game piece passes over the air bed with the frictional drag thereon being significantly lower than that of the scoring area towards which the game piece is urged. The air bed and scoring areas are supported by a frame and are bounded by gutter means and outside border a gutter for respectively receiving the game piece should it fall off the air bed or scoring area and for retaining the game piece on the table. The holes in the air bed may be located in various arrangements so as to impart various movement characteristics to a game piece passing thereover.

  • Patent number: 3987581
    Abstract: A system wherein a plurality of selected objects are caused to move as a group at regulated speeds within a defined oval-shaped level area simulating a race track as well as to stop and go individually and separately apart from the group, and wherein a plurality of different individual objects are caused to move at regulated speeds over different locations about said level area, as well as wherein a simulated airplane landing and take-off strip is defined within said oval-shaped area for periodic controlled movement of a flight object thus enabling a series of events to occur separately and simultaneously at the will of the user.

  • Patent number: 3944223
    Abstract: A hockey type goal structure which may be readily set up in a yard, street or on ice. The goal is formed of a rectangular frame that supports a canvas sheet fitted with peripheral openings in a plane generally inclined to the horizontal surface on which the device is mounted. The canvas sheet is fastened by tension springs to a frame so that a ball or puck striking the canvas is rebounded away from the structure, while a ball or puck entering one of the peripheral openings is scored as a goal.

  • Patent number: 3931974
    Abstract: An improved air table for use in playing a game. The table has a perforated horizontal surface and means coupled to the underside of the surface to form an air chamber. This means may be in the form of a flexible sheet. An air pump forces air into the chamber and out through the perforations, thereby creating an air cushion on the upper playing side of the surface for facilitating the movement of one or more playing pieces over that upper playing side. The table may have goals and guard rails disposed in front of the goals to permit the playpiece to enter the goals while limiting the degree of blockage of the goal entrance.
