Class Information
Number: 463/53
Name: Amusement devices: games > Simulated-projectile game, target therefor, or accessory > Coindence detection or indication means (e.g., aim detector, "hit" -indicator, etc.)
Description: A simulated-projectile game including structure for: (a) determining the positional relationship (i.e., coincidence) between a simulated projector and a target for the purpose of determining whether the simulated projector is properly positioned (i.e., aimed) with respect to the target for an intended projectile to "strike" the target, or (b) providing a display, signal, or other representation of the ultimate destination of an intended projectile (i.e., indication means) based upon the position of a simulated projector when the simulated projector simulates a projection (e.g, indicating if or where an intended projectile would "strike" a target).
