CHILDS RACING GAME.

Specification of Letters Patent. Patented Feb. 14;, 1922.

Application filed March 22, 1921. Serial No. 454,577.

and I do declare the following to be a full,

clear, and exact'description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the characters of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this specification.

The object of this invention is to provide a novel game for children.

.Briefly, the invention comprises a racing course laid out in zig-zag fashion on a gaming board, the course being defined by a plurality of spaces of different colors. The colors are arranged in sections and opposite each section of the course is a station provided with correspondingly. colored spaces for receiving an arbitrary number of play ing pieces. A finish section is also provided for each color which has a number of spaces equal to the number of'playing pieces and spaces in the respective station. The number of moves allowed each player are determined by throwing a die and the object is to. move all of the playing pieces of each color to the corresponding finish section, the player who accomplishes this first being the winner of the game.

In the drawings:

Fig. 1 is a plan showing the arrangement of the parts on the gaming board;

Figs. 2, 3, 4 and 5 represent one of each of the differently colored pieces; and

Fig. 6 is a perspective of a die used in playing the game. The gaming board is indicated at 10 and is provided with a border 12 within its boundaries which encloses a racing course in the form of the letter X. Between the arms of the X-shaped course there is provided a plurality of stations 15 opposite which the players sit. Each station is provided with an arbitrary number of colored spaces, one station 15 having blue spaces 16, another green spaces 18, the third red spaces 20, and the last yellow spaces 22. As shown,

the game is adapted to be played by two,-

three, or four persons.

Each arm of the course is provided with three longitudinally -extending rows of spaces as shown. The two rows of spaces along the edges of-two arms of the racing 'course' adjacent each other and immediately opposite the respective stations are colored to correspond with spaces in the respective stations, each pair of such rows forming an L. The pair ofrows 116 opposite the spaces 16 are blue, and each pair of rows forming the Us opposite the spaces 18, 20 and 22 respectively, are respectively green,' as indicated at 118, red as indicated at 120, and yellow as indicated at 122. At the'outer end of each arm the middle space is colored to correspond with the adjacent left row of the respective L, the blue space being indicated at 216, the green space at 218, the red space at' 220, and the yellow space at 222.

A finishsection is provided-for each color in the form of a row of spaces corresponding to the number of spaces in the station 15, this row in each case being provided in the middle of the right arm of the course for the respective color and between the right row of the respective L and the left row of the L of the color to the right of the last mentioned color. In each instance the finish row is positioned inward ofthe last space on left end of that color-which is to the right of the color in question. Thus, the blue finish row is indicated at 316 and is between the right row 116 of the blue L and the left row 122 of the yellow Land radially inward from the last left space 222 of the yellow section. Similarly the green finish section 318-is between the row 118 to the players right and the left row 116 of the blue section; the finish row 320 is between a red row 120 and-a green row 118; and the yellow finish section 322 is between a yellow row 122 and a red row 120. Each player has five pieces to correspond with the five spaces in the respective stations 15 and to' correspond with the five spaces in the respective finish section. In playing the game, the starting point for each color is the lower right-hand space 25 of the respective color and upon this one of the correspondingly colored playing pieces is placed. A blue piece is shown at 416, a green piece at 418, a red piece at 420, and a yellow piece at 422. The playing is determlned by throwing a dieindicated at 30 in Fig. 6, the die preferably being successively by the players until one or any other arbitrary number turns up. The player who turns up this arbitrary number thrown.

this manner turns are taken successively by the players around the board and the pieces are moved continuously around the outer rows of the entire course until the respective color reaches the last space at the end of the left row of the preceding color. The piece then passesinward on the respective finish sect-ion until it reaches the innermost space.

This player than starts with a new piece taken from his respective station and the game continues. The player who wins is that one who first succeeds in placing all of his pieces in the respective finish section first.

As as example, the player having" the green pieces moves from the respective space 25 clockwise around the board until he returns to the respective arm of the course, whence he passes from the last blue 216 inward along the finish section 318 to the inner end thereof.

Then he places a new piece on the starting space 25 and repeats until it has reached the next to the innermost space in said finish section 318. If all of his pieces reach the five spaces in said finish section before the five spaces of the finish section of any other color are filled, he wins the game.
