Title:
Pic-O-Pic
Kind Code:
A1


Abstract:
Pic-O-Pic is a board game of various levels of skill. The moves required to win is similar to a combination of chess and checkers. There are the “power” pawns which are guarded by the “security” pawns. The way to score is for one player to place his or her power pawn on top the other player's power pawn and then the score by multiplying the numbers assigned to both of the power pawns. There are only two sides but each side can be represented by one player or a team of two players (only one player on the team makes the moves). Each side sets up their respective pawns in one of two ways. The first move is made by the player whose first name is alphabetically first. After a series of moves and countermoves, whoever completes the numbers in the margin of the board game first—wins.

Claims:
1. As a board game its color scheme and design have never existed before. The circles with transversed horizontal, vertical and diagonal lines are very distinct and combine concepts from geometry and multiplication.

2. The movement of the “power pawns” and how one scores is also very distinct. After reviewing numerous other board games, I claim that the movement and scoring concept of the “pic” is unique and does exist.

3. The name Pic-O-Pic has never existed prior to the submission of this application.
