1. Field of the Invention

This invention relates to a recreational game that you play for the benefit health, Relaxation, and fun.

2. Prior Art

This game is a new invention that has not been played before. It is not like anything else ever invented. The closed thing played to this game is a very old and well know game that is called hoarse shoes. It is different though that it uses washers instead of horse shoes. That is where the similarities end. This game of washer tossing then takes on a whole new way of playing that is both fun and interesting to the players, it is like nothing that I have seen ever before. The game board is of original design and fabrication. The washers are used in this game as the objects that you use in tandem with the original never seen before already mentioned game board. It is a simply game that is played with the two pieces that I have already talked about, the washers and game board. The rules of the game are also different from any other game that I have ever played. They are set up in away that makes the game exciting and fun to play. It is one of the best games that I have ever play. The rules are simply to understand and make for a great game. When someone plays this game for the first time the rules are easy to understand and the object of the game is easy to pickup. The object and advantages will be discussed next and the game will become more understandable to all who read this as you go on.


Along with the fun of playing a new and very different game, it is relaxing and beneficial to the health of the person who plays the game. The other objects and advantages are:

    • (a) An increase of your aim and depth perception that is accomplished when you play the game over and over.
    • (b) The benefits of constant repetition from hours of enjoyment playing this game that I can not seem to get enough of and I feel the need to pay the game all the time.
    • (c) The game gives you a sense of enjoyment that I have not gotten from any other games. It is so much fun to play that you want to do it all the time.
    • (d) It helps you to learn and to use your brain functioning skills more all the time. This is useful in providing you with a sense of fulfillment and self worth.
    • (e) The social aspect of playing the game against a worthy adversary. Or a team of people is by far the best of all the benefits. It gives you a team feeling and is good practice for your socialization and to fit in with the crowd. If you play against just one person this is also good because it gives you a good competitive spirit. This competitive spirit further reinforced by the desire to win in one of the best games that I have ever seen.


This is a game that is played with a large washer that is 3 inches in width and a has a game board that has three holes in it that are equally spaced apart running the length of the game board. The holes are slightly wider than the washers so that they can be tossed into the holes.


The drawings are of three figures one showing the washer and the other two are of the game board. The first drawing is looking at the game board from the side and the other is a birds eye view looking straight down to the top of the game board.


The washer is 3 inches wide with a donut hole in it 1 inch wide. This is shown in FIG. 1. In FIG. 2 the game board is shown looking from the side. It is 36 inches long and 12 inches wide. The holes are slightly larger than the 3 inch washers and evenly spaced 3 inches apart on the game board. FIG. 3 is the same game board but from a view looking down.

Operation—FIGS. 1, 2, 3

The operation of the game is simple, you toss the washers trying to get them on the board and in the holes to score points. The object is to get to 21 before your opponent. You score points by either landing the washers on the board or in the holes. If you land on the board then you need to be past your opponent to score 1 point. If you land in the first hole that is worth 2 points. If you land in the second hole that is worth 3 points. And if you land in the 3 hole that is worth 4 points. If your opponent lands on top of your washer in any of the holes the they score those points and you do not score any point in that hole. You must get 21 exactly if you go over then your score goes back to 15.


This is a good game with the benefits of skill and learning that come with fun and excitement of playing the game. It is also a very competitive game. It is fun to play and is good for you.
