Number: 273/348.2
Name: Amusement devices: games > Aerial projectile game; game element (e.g., target, etc.) or accessory therefor other than projector or projectile, per se > Target > Having suction cup for adherence of projectile thereto or having surface adapted for adherence thereto of projectile having suction cup
Description: Subject matter wherein the target device either (a) comprises or has a resilient cup-shaped means thereon so that, when the open portion of the cup-shaped means thereof is struck by, or otherwise forcibly engaged with, a projectile having a relatively smooth surface, the resilience of the cup-shaped portion will cause the pressure of the fluid trapped between the interior surface of the cup-shaped means and the relatively smooth surface of the projectile to be reduced below that located outside of the cup-shaped means thereby causing the projectile to adhere to the cup-shaped means and thereby to the target device, or (b) has a relatively smooth surface which is adapted and intended to be struck by, or otherwise forcibly engaged with, a projectile having such a resilient cup-shaped means thereon so that, when the open portion of the cup-shaped means of the projectile strikes, or is forcibly engaged with, the relatively smooth surface of the target device, the resilience of the cup-shaped portion will cause the pressure of the fluid trapped between the interior surface of the cup-shaped means and the relatively smooth surface to be reduced below that located outside of the cup-shaped means thereby causing the projectile to adhere to the surface of the target device.
