ATTORNEY Patented July 10, 1951 UNITED STATES PATENT ()FFlCE 2,560,187 COMBINATION CARD AND DICE GAME Durrel E. Post, Gates Mills, Ohio Application May s, 71946, Serial No. 667,166

2 Claims.

1 My present invention comprises a novel combination dice and card game wherein the playing cards have indicia thereon related to the indicia on the dice, and the playing of the cards in accordance with the rules of various games is determined by the indicia appearing on the upperfaces of the dice when the latter are rolled.

The primary object of the invention is to provide a novel, interesting, and entertaining game which will have wide appeal and which will have infinite variety in the manner of its playing as a result of the novel form of the playing elements consisting of cards and dice having related indicia thereon.

The combination card and dice game of my invention comprises a suit or suits of cards, each card of a suit having indicia thereon designating it as of diflerent numerical or other value from the other cards of the suit, and a die or pair of dice for each suit of cards employed, the die or pair of dice for each suit having on their different faces indicia corresponding to the respective indicia of the different cards to which the die or pair of dice relates.

The game of my invention further comprises other dice having different relation to one or more cards of different suits of cards employed in the game of my invention. Of these latter dice, as disclosed herein, one die may have on its different faces indicia corresponding to different cards of different suits; another die may have on its different faces indicia-corresponding to like cards of different suits; and another die has on its different faces indicia differently and peculiarly related to like cards of different suits.

The details of the invention will be better understood from the followingdetailed description taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawings, in which:

Figure 1 illustrates a suit of cards made in accordance with my invention, each card having on it identifying indicia differently designating the same and corresponding to like indicia upon a die or dice employed in conjunction with such suit of cards.

Figure 2 illustrates another suit of cards each having thereon identifying indicia differently identifying the respective cards of such suit in like manner to corresponding cards of the suit of Figure l but identifying the same as of a different suit.

Figure 3 illustrates still another suit of cards each having thereon different identifying indicia differently identifying the respective cards of the latter suit in a manner corresponding to like cards of the other two suits but identifying the cards of the latter suit as of a different suit.

Figure 4 illustrates certain dice of my invention having certain indicia thereon corresponding to indicia on like cards of the several suits, one of the die members of Figure 4 having its indicia relating in a peculiar and different manner to the like cards of the several suits from the manner in which the indicia upon the other die member corresponds to like cards of the several suits. I

Figure 5 illustrates another die member of my invention having indicia thereon corresponding to different cards of diiferent suits of cards.

Figure 6 illustrates several die members, each i of which corresponds to its respective suit of cards and has indicia thereon corresponding to the respective cards of the respective suit to which it relates. 7

Now describing the invention more in detail, Figure 1 illustrates a suit of cards, which may be termed for the purposes hereof as the green suit, the respective cards being designated by the numerals I, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and. I. It will be noted that the cards i to 1 each has indicia thereon differently designating it from the other cards of such suit, but designating each of the cards as of the same suit, the indicia being, in this instance, in the form of green spots. The indicia on the cards I to l is designated by the numerals la, 2a, 3a, 4a, Ba, Ba, and la, respectively. The indicia Ia on card I, for example, comprises one green spot, indicating that it is the first card of the green suit of Figure 1. Likewise, indicia 2a on card 2 comprises two green spots, indicating that it is the second card of said green suit. Similarly, the indicia 3a, 4a, 5a, 6a,, and 1a., on cards 3, 4, 5, 6, and 1, respectively, comprises different numbers of green spots for each card indicating different consecutive cards of the said green suit.

In like manner I preferably provide additional suits of cards, such as those illustrated in Figures 2 and 3, the individual cards of the respective suits each having different identifying indicia thereon corresponding to like cards of the green suit but designating respective cards of the suit as ,of a different suitthan the cards of the other suit. For example, as illustrated, the suit of cards of Figure 2, which may be termed for the purposes hereof as the red suit, comprises seven cards respectively designated by the numbers 8, 9,10, ll, l2, l3, and I4, respectively corresponding to'the cards designated l, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and. 1 of the green suit. That is to say the cards 8 to [4 will all have indicia thereon such as a red spot or spots designating them as cards of the red suit, and each of the cards 8 to M will have a different number of red spots thereon so as to distinguish each card from the other cards of the red suit. Thus, card 8 will have one red spot thereon indicated 80., the card 9 will have two red spots thereon, the card 12 three red spots, card I I four red spots, card l2 five red spots, card I3 six red spots, and card [4 seven red spots.

Likewise, Figure 3 illustrates still another suit of cards, each having indicia thereon designiating it as of a different suit from the other two suits illustrated, the indicia on the cards distinguishing each card from every other card of the same suit. Thus, the suit of cards illustrated in Figure 3, and which may be termed for the purposes hereof, as the yellow suit, comprises cards designated by the numerals l5, 16, ll, [8, i9, 20, and 2|, each having a number of yellow spots thereon. Thus card l5, has one yellow spot, card l6 two yellow spots, card i! three yellow spots, card l3 four yellow spots, card l9 five yellow spots, card 20 six yellow spots, and card 2| seven yellow spots.

It will be understood that additional suits of cards may be provided as desired or required, in accordance with my invention, depending upon the number of players utilizing the game.

In accordance with my invention I provide dice members such as illustrated in Figure 6, and, additionally, if desired, one or more of the dice members illustrated in Figures 4 and 5. As shown in Figure 6, the dice members 22, 23, 24, have indicia thereon respectively relating each of the die members with its particular one of the suits of cards illustrated in Figures 1, 2, and 3. Thus, the die member 22 has on each of its faces the indicia in the form of spots, each face of the die member 22 having a different number of spots, all of the spots on die member 22 being of the same color, namely, green, relating the die member 22 to the green suit of cards illustrated in Figure 1. Thus the die member 22 has on its face 22a one green spot 22b relating that face of the die member 22 to the card I of the green suit of cards of Figure 1. Likewise, the face 220 of the die member 22 has two green spots 22d relating this face of the die member 22 to the card 2 of the green suit of cards illustrated in Figure 1.

On its face 226 there are three green spots 22 relating this face of the die member 22 to the card 3 of the green suit illustrated in Figure 1. It will be understood that the other faces of the die member 22 are respectively provided with four, five, or six green spots respectively relating these faces of the die member 22 to the cards 4, 5, and 5 of the suit of cards of Figure 1.

Die member 23 is similar to die member 22 except that the indicia on the respective faces of die member 23 are related to the red suit of Figure 2. That is to say, the respective faces of the die member 23 have, respectively, one, two, three, four, five, and six red spots, respectively relating these faces of the die member 23 to the cards 8,9, H], H, [2, and I3, of the red suit of Figure 2.

Similarly, the die member 24 has on its respective faces indicia relating this die member to the yellow suit of Figure 3 and the respective faces of the die member 24 being related to the respective cards I5 to 2! of the said yellow suit. Thus the die member 24 has on its respective faces I, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 yellow spots relating those faces of said die member 24 to the respective cards l5, l6, l1, I8, I B, and 26, of the yellow suit of Figure 3.

The die member 25 of Figure 5 is similar to the dice members of Fig-ure 6 in that the die member 25 has a different number of spots on each face. However, the spots on each face of the die member 25 are of a color different from that of the spots on the other faces of said die member 25, and the color of the spots on different faces of the diemember 25 is related to the color of different suits of cards utilized in my game. Thus the face 25a. of die member 25 has five red spots thereon relating this face of the die member 25 to card 12 of the red suit of Figure 2; face 25b of die member 25 has four green spots relating this face of die member 25 to a different suit of cards, namely, the green suit of Figure 1, and to a different card of that suit, namely card A, which likewise has four green spots thereon; and face 250 of die member 25 has six yellow spots relating this face of die member 25 to still another suit, namely the yellow suit of Figure 3, and to still a different card of the latter suit, namely card 28, which likewise will have six yellow spots thereon. It will be understood that the other faces of die member 25 will respectively have one, two, and three spots, the spots on each of the latter faces of the die member 25 being of a different color from the spots on the other faces of said die member 25. Thus, the face of the die member 25 having one spot thereon may use a brown spot, relating that face to a brown suit of cards to the card of that suit having one brown spot thereon; another of the faces of the die member 25 may have three orange spots, relating that face to an orange suit of cards and to the card of the orange suit having three orange spots thereon; another face of the die member 25 may have two blue spots thereon, relating this face of the die member 25 to a blue suit of cards and to the card of that suit having two blue spots.

Referring now to Figure 4, the die member 26 is designed to have indicia on each of its faces relating to a like card of a different suit. For example, the face 26a of die member 25 has six green spots thereon, relating this .face of the die member 26 to card 5 of the green suit of Figure 1 which card 6 has six green spots thereon. In like manner, the face 262) of die member 25 has six red spots thereon, relating this face of die member 25 to card 83 of the red suit of Figure 2, which likewise has six red spots thereon. Similarly face 250 of die member 26 has six yellow spots, relating this face of die member 26 to the yellow suit of Figure 3 and to card member 20 thereof, which also has six yellow spots thereon. It will be understood that the other faces of die member 25 will each have six spots, the spots on each of said other faces relating to a like card of another suit, so that, for example, one face may relate to the six card of an orange suit, another face to the six card of a blue suit, and still another face to the six card of a brown suit.

The die member 21 of Fig-ure 4 has on its respective faces different indicia, differently and peculiarly relating each of said faces to a like card of a different suit. Thus, for example, the face 21a has seven spots thereon, relating this face of the die member 21 to the seven spot card of a certain suit of cards. However, the spots on face 27a are not all of the same color. One of the spots, namely, 21b, on face 21a is green, while the oth r spots on face Zia are of a different color, shown, for example, as brown. Thus, depending upon the manner in which the is played in accor dance with variations of rules, the face 27a of die member 27 may be determined to relate to the seven spot card of a brown suit, o to the seven spot card of the green suit of Figure 1. In like manner one of the seven spots on face 210 of die member 21 may' be of a different color from theother spots on face 21c. Thus, for example, 'as sliown', spot 21d on face 210 is red and the other spots .on face 21d are orange. Similarly, one of the spots on face 216 may be a yellow spot as shown at 27 while theother spots on face 216 are blue, as shown. It will be understood that the other faces of diemember 21 will likewise contain seven spots on each face, one or more of the spots on each face being different from the color of the other spots on the said face.

The combination dice and card game of my invention is capable of infinite .variety in rules of playing. Ingeneral, it may be stated that the game may be played as a solitaire game by a single person, or as a game in which two or more persons compete against each other, or as a game in which an even number of persons play as partners, or on sides. The method of play in general contemplates the use of one or more suits of cards" and one or more of the die members such as 22, 23, or 2d, corresponding to each suit of cards employed for the particular variety of game to be played. The method of play in generalcontemplates that a player will roll one .or more'of the die members to determinewhether he can play a card held by him. When a player rolls the die or dice, he may play a card or cards having indicia thereon corresponding to indicia upon the upper faces of th die or dice after they are rolled. It will be apparent that in addition to one or more of the die members 22, 23, and 24 for each suit of cards employed in a particular game, there may be also used one or more of the die members 25, 26, and 21, the rolling of which will similarly determine which card or cards held by a player may be played in his turn upon rolling of the dice.

One example of a method of playing the game of my invention in accordance with solitaire rules by a single player will now be described. The player selects a suit of cards, such as the green suit of Figure 1, using only cards I to 6 inclusive, shufiles the cards, and places them face-down in a single pile in front of him. Now he turns the top card face up and rolls the die member 22 bearing indicia relating to the green suit of Figure 1. If, after rolling the die member 22, it bears on its top face indicia corresponding to indicia on the top card of the pile, the card may be played out on the board and the next card on the pile turned face up. The player rolls the die members 22 again and determines whether the indicia on the top face of the die member 22 after the roll corresponds with the indicia upon the card on top of the pile. If the player cannot match the indicia on the top card with that on the top face of the die member in three rolls of the latter, he loses the game; otherwise, the play continues as above described until the player has played out all the cards of the pile.

It will be obvious that a single player can play a similar solitaire game using more than one suit of cards in which event he may utilize all seven cards of each suit, shuiiling all of the cards together, and using one or more die members of Figure 6 corresponding to each suit employed. In playing of a solitaire game with more than one suit of cards, in addition to the die members of Figure 6, one or more of the die members of Figures 4 and 5 may also be used. For the playing of the seven spot card of any suit, the die member 21 may be utilized by matching the odd spot on the upper face of die member 21 with the color of the particular seven spot card, or by matching the color of the other spots on "the upper face of the die member 2'8 with the color of the particular seven spot card.

For the playing of the gameof my invention by two or more players competing against" each other individually, or playing as partners oron sides, one suit of cards can be employed foreach player playing the game, and one or morefof the dice of Figure fi'corresponding to the color of each suit utilized will also be employed, and also, if desired, one or more of the die members of Figures 4 and 5. In the playing of the game by two or more persons, each player may select a suit of cards, shuflle the cards'of his selected suit, and place the cards face down in front of him. Then the game may be played after the manner of solitaire except; that the players will take turns rolling the dice and determining the play of the cards by matching the same withthe top card of the pile of cards in front of himz-ic, I

If each player plays only the suit of cards selected by him, he need only roll the die member of Figure 6 corresponding to the respective suit, together with die members of Figures 4 and 5, if desired.

Instead of eachplayer only playing cards .of his selected suit, the cards of all suits may-be shuffled together and dealt to the respective players, who may play them from their hands or from a pile or piles dealt upon the board in front of each player. In any event, the playing of the cards will be determined by the rolling of the dice and matching of same with the card held by the particular player. The play will continue until one of the players has played all of the cards held by him, the players taking their turns rolling the dice.

Scoring may be by counting the value of the cards played by each player or by counting the cards still held by each player against that in dividual player, or in favor of the player playing out hiscards first, or in various other ways as will be apparent.

The die members of Figures 4 and 5 may be employed to provide either penalties or premium, adding to the interest and excitement of the game. For example, if a player, after rolling the dice, matches one of the die members of Figures 4 and 5 with cards held by him, such plays may be utilized to give that player a premium such as an additional arbitrary score, or double or triple the value of the card matched. or in any other desired manner. Similarly, one or more of the die members of Figures 4 and 5 may be utilized to inflict a penalty upon the player matching the indicia on those die members with cards held by him.

From the foregoing it will be apparent that the combination card and dice game of my invention may be played in accordance with an infinite variety of rules, as desired, to provide a very interesting and entertaining game for one or more players.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United States, is:
