1 Claim.
. This invention relates to a card game accessory
for use in the playing of bridge and has for its
primary object to provide, in a manner as herein
after set forth, a device of this character on which
5 the declarer may conveniently indicate the cards
comprising his hand and then pass said device
to his partner, the dummy, who may then keep
track of the cards as they are played from the
hand of the declarer. thereby greatly increasing
10 the interest and pleasure of the game to the
player holding the dummy hand.
Other objects of the invention are to provide a
card game accessory of the aforementioned char
acter which will be simple in construction, strong,
15 durable, highly e?icient and reliable in use, com
pact, light in weight, attractive in appearance
and which may be manufactured at low cost.
All of the foregoing and still further objects
and advantages of the invention will become
20 apparent from a study of the following speci?
the ends of said openings 5 are spaced from the
upper and lower edges of the strips 4. The ele
ments 2 and 4 are also of any suitable material
and said elements are secured in position by any
suitable means, such as through the medium of
an adhesive.
Mounted for vertical sliding movement in the
slots 3 of the guides 2 and adapted to project
above said guides are slides 6 which are also of
any suitable material. The slides 6 are operable 10
beneath the cover strips 4. Fixed on the lower
end portions of the slides B are operating buttons
1 or the like which travel in the elongated open
ings 5.
On the board I and adapted to be observed 15
through the slots 3 and the openings 5 of the ele
ments 2 and 4, respectively, are symbols 8 of the
cards comprising a bridge deck. Adjacent the
left hand end of each transverse row of the sym
bols 8 is a symbol 9 designating the suit of that 20
cation, taken in connection with the accom
panying drawings wherein like characters of ref
row. It will be observed that the transverse rows
erence designate corresponding parts throughout
the several views, and wherein:

prises 13 cards from the ace to the deuce. Ad

vided on the board i.
It is thought that the manner of using the de
vice will be readily apparent from a considera
tion of the foregoing. When the declarer has 30
obtained the contract he pushes the slides 6 up
wardly in a manner to expose the symbols 8 cor
responding to the cards comprising his hand and
then passes his device to the dummy. The sym
bols l0 assist the declarer in locating the cor 35
rect slides 5 to be elevated. The operating but
tons l of the slides 5 limit the movement of said
section, taken substantially on the line 6-—6 of
Fig. 1.

Referring now to the drawings in detail, it
will be seen that the embodiment of the inven
tion which has been illustrated comprises a sub
stantially rectangular board I of any suitable
material. Mounted transversely on the board I
are spaced, parallel guides 2 having formed there
50 in vertical slots 3 extending from their upper
edges to a point adjacent the lower edges thereof.
Mounted on the guides 2 are cover strips 4 hav
ing vertically elongated openings 5 therein com
municating with the slots 3. The elongated
openings 5 are of less width than the slots 3 and
bols 10,. corresponding to the symbols 8, are pro
the ends of the elongated openings 5. After thus
slides downwardly to cover the symbols 8 as the
cards are played.
It is believed that the many advantages of a
card game accessory constructed in accordance cs 5
with the present invention will be readily under
stood and although a preferred embodiment of
the device is as illustrated and described, it is to
be understood that changes in the details of
construction and in the combination and arrange
ment of parts may be resorted to which will fall
within the scope of the invention as claimed.
For example, the symbols 8 may be placed on the
slides 6 and be so located as to be concealed be 55
neath the cover strips 4 when said slides are
pulled downwardly as the cards are played.
What is claimed is':—
A card game accessory comprising a board
having symbols thereon representing the cards
comprising the suits of a deck, guides mounted
on the board and having slots extending there
into from one edge thereof, said slots exposing
the symbols, strips mounted on the guides and
10 having elongated openings therein ‘communicat
ing with the slots, the symbols being observable
through said openings, and slides operable in the
slots of the guides beneath the strips and adapted
to conceal the symbols, the elongated openings
being of less width than the slots, said slides in
cluding upstanding operating buttons operable
in the elongated openings, the board further hav
ing symbols thereon adjacent the strips :and cor-'
responding to the ?rst named symbols.
