5 Claims. (Cl. 273-35)
The present invention relates to a game ap

simulate a football contest or the like. The game
device comprises a plate having a plurality of
5 playing members thereon, which are mounted to
be rotated about substantially vertical axes.
The main object of the invention is to pro
vide playing members having arms of such a
length as to make the areas traversed by the arms
of two adjacent playing members, when rotated,
partially coincide.
An embodiment of the invention will be de
scribed below with reference to the accompanying
drawing, in which

Fig. 2 is a sectional view on the line II-II of
Fig. l, and
employed.
According to Figs. 1 and 2, a horizontally posi
tioned plate I is provided on its lower surface with
supports 6 and on its upper surface with a play
ground 2 framed by longitudinal ribs 3 and trans
verse ribs 4. The centre portions of the transverse
30 ribs 4 are removed and replaced by goals 5 pro
vided with movable goal keeper members of any
suitable type.
Playing members A-F provided with shafts
I0 are rotatably mounted in vertical bushings II
35 in the plate I and equipped with substantially
horizontal arms I 2 having substantially horizontal
projections I3, I4, I5 thereon. The distance be
tween projections I4 and I 5 of an arm I2 is some
what in excess of the length of the diameter of a
40 playing ball I6, and this also preferably applies
to the distance between projections I3, I4 of two
4
tensions, being flexible vertically in order to enable
two arms, or extensions, when engaging each
other, to be bent upwards or downwards and thus
pass each other. To facilitate this procedure, the 10
extensions are suitably provided with sharp edges,
as shown in Fig. 6.
In Fig. 3 a modified embodiment of the arms I 2
and their extensions I2a is illustrated. In this
embodiment the arms I2 are positioned at one 15
and the same height, the extensions I2a, on the
other hand, being placed at different heights

A third embodiment of said arms is illustrated
in Figs. 5 and 6. In this case the arms I2 and ex
tensions IZa are all in one and the same hori 5
zontal plane,- the arms I2, or at least the ex
above said arms I2, and attached to those arms
between the projections I5 and the axes of rota

tion of said arms.
The shafts I0 are rotated by means of cranks
22-25 connected to vertical shafts 2| positioned
outside the frame ribs 3. 4. Said shafts 2| are
operatively connected with the shafts I Il below
the plate I by lines or the like 28 acting upon 25
grooved wheels or the like 20 and 26 secured to
the shafts I0 and 2I, respectively. As indicated
by dotted lines in Fig. 1, playing members B, D,
and F are manipulated by the cranks 22 and 24,
playing members A, C, and E being manipulated 30
by the cranks 23 and 25 positioned at the- op
posite end of the plate I. Naturally, the playing
members may be manipulated by other known
means, or each playing member may be indi
vidually manipulated by a separate crank or. other 35
suitable means.
By suitably rotating and stopping cranks 22-25
