Application Api'ii 29, 1940, Serial No. 332,363

1 Claim.

This invention relates to games, the primary object of the invention being to provide a game embodying a game board and game pieces movable over the game board, the movements of the such as dice, operated by the players.

An important object of the invention is to provide a game which will not only be amusing and. interesting to the players, but one wherein the 1 successful scoring of the game will depend to a major degree, on the accuracy and skill of the players.'-

With the foregoing and other objects in view, which will appear as the description proceeds, the invention resides in the combination and arrangement of parts and in the details of construction hereinafter described and claimed, it being understood that changes in the precise embodiment of the invention herein described, may be madewithin the scope of what is claimed, without departing from the spirit of the invention.

Referring to the drawing:

Figure 1 is a plan view of a game board constructed in accordance with the invention, illustrating two game pieces as positioned thereon.

Figure 2 is an end elevational view of the game board.

Figure 3 is a perspective View of one of the game pieces employed in playing the game.

30 Figure 4 is a plan View of one of the scoring pieces colored red.

Figure 5 is a plan view of another form of scoring piece which is colored blue.

Referring to the drawing in detail, the game board which is indicated generally by the reference character 5, comprises a playing surface divided into 72 squares formed by spaced parallel lines 6 and spaced parallel lines 1 formed at right angles with respect to the lines 6, and constitut- 40 ing playing spaces. In each of these squares or playing spaces, are indicia disposed preferably adjacent to the corners of the squares, the indicia being indicated by the reference character 8, and are in the form of numbers. The numbers 45 or indicia appearing in the squares or playing spaces, are of various distinctive combinations, for purposes to be hereinafter more fully de scribed, the numbers used in the playing spaces being from 1 to 6.

59 The game pieces are rectangular in formation, as shown by Figure 3 of the drawing, and are formed with rounded edges so that they may be easily positioned adjacent to each other on the playing surface of the game board. The game 55 pieces are equal in size to the sizes of the squares game pieces being controlled by a chance device or playing spaces formed on the playing surface of the game board. These game pieces are indicated by the reference character 9, and are also provided with indicia in. the form of numbers, the numbers being arranged in various combinations on the difference game pieces.

Each game piece is provided with a circular opening indicated at It, the circular openings of the game pieces being so disposed, that when the game pieces are positioned over a square, oneof 10 the numbers appearing in the square, will be visible through the opening.

The point indicator indicated at H, is of the same construction as the point indicator Hi, the difference in the members II and I2 being that the member I I is colored red, while the number I2 is colored blue, thus distinguishing the members i l and I2, from each other.

In playing the game, a chance device, such as dice, or an indicator may be used, the numbers on the indicator or chance device, not exceeding 6, since the numbers or indicia of the squares formed on the game board, are not in excess of 6.

The rules under which the game is played, are as follows: All of the game pieces of which there are two sets of thirty-six pieces in each set, each piece embodying a different combination of numa bers, are placed face downward on the table on which the game board is positioned.

The first player now picks up one of the game pieces and places it in one of the corners of the game board, the indicia of the game piece being exposed or face up. When the game piece has been positioned, an opening within the square of the game board on which the game piece is positioned, will appear through the opening in the game piece. The player now operates the chance device, which may be a die, rolling a die in an effort to throw a number corresponding to the number appearing through the opening of the game piece which has been placed on the game board. If the player is successful in throwing the number with one throw, he has made a point, and is given one of the point indicating pieces.

If the player fails to throw a number corresponding to the number appearing through the opening of the game piece, he is given a no-point game piece which he retains until the game has been completed.

The next player now picks up one of the game pieces and endeavors to match one of the numbers of the game piece which he has selected, with a number of the game piece played by the previous player, bylaying his game piece adjacent to the game piece which has been played in such a way that numbers of the game pieces which are alike, Will fall opposite to each other. If the player is successful in selecting a game piece having a number which corresponds to a number of the played game piece, he places his game piece adjacent to the played game piece. After this play, a number Will appear through the opening of the second game piece played, and the player will now manipulate the chance device in an effort to throw a number corresponding to the number appearing within the opening. If the player is successful, he is given another point indicating piece. It will of course be understood that the player by matching the game piece which he has selected, with a game piece already played, scores a point, for which he is also given a point indicating game piece.

After a player selects a game piece, and is unable to position his game piece on the game board so that a number thereof will fall opposite to a corresponding number on a game piece played, he retains the game piece selected and does not draw or select another game piece, until a game piece has been placed with which he can match the game piece selected by him.

This system of play is repeated, until all the game pieces have been positioned on the game board. The players then count the number of point indicating game pieces and no-point indicating game pieces, subtracting the number of no-point indicating game pieces from the number of point indicating game pieces. The player having the greatest number of point indicating game pieces after subtracting the number of no-point indicating game pieces, is considered the winner.

What is claimed is:

In a game, a game board, the playing surface of the game board being ruled providing a plurality of rectangular blocks having distinctive groups of numbers formed thereon, the numbers being arranged adjacent to the corners of said rectangular blocks, rectangular game pieces of a size to exactly fit in the blocks of the game board and having their upper surfaces ruled providing individual number spaces, each game piece having HJALMIAR I.
