3 Claims. (Cl. 273-1022)
This invention in general relates to games and more
particularly to an animated target game responsive to rel
atively low density missiles.

to overcome the friction afforded by rod 23 in the sole
noid core and is normally in open contact relation with
blade 30, as shown in FIG. 3.

Referring to FIG. 4, a conductor 31 is connected to
one terminal of a source of electric energy L1, switch
blade 21 and one terminal of solenoid 12. A conductor
