Play Game

 

System and method for facilitating play of a game with user-selected elements

Systems and methods are provided for facilitating play of a game with user-selected elements. According to one or more embodiments of the present invention, a set of all possible elements of a game is determined. Each of the elements of the set is associated with at least one of a plurality of locations. A representation of the plurality of locations is displayed to a player, defining a set of selectable locations. At least one selection signal is received, with each selection signal indicating a selectable location from the set of selectable locations, indicating at least one selected element. An outcome is determined based on the at least one selected element.

Articles of play for use in the game of catch

Articles of play for use with the game of catch include a ball covered with a hook and loop fastening material and a multi-layer catcher's mitt with a front layer also covered in a mating material. The multi-layer mitt includes a rigid rear layer, a flexible layer, and front layer of a hook and loop fastening material.

Triple-play game

A triple-play game (10) that allows three games to be played indoors: basketball, tetherball and target-board. All three games utilize a pole (12) positioned vertically between the ceiling and floor of a room. Basketball is played with a ball (20) attached to a line (14) having its other end attached to a wrist strap (24). The basketball backboard (30) is clipped to the pole (12) and has a ball-hoop (34) having a frontal narrow opening (38). When the ball is tossed through the ball-hoop, the attached line follows and falls through the opening (38). Whether a player makes a basket or misses, all that is necessary to retrieve the ball (20) is to pull the line (14). Thus, the player can remain at the original shooting position. The tetherball game features a safety pole-clip (50) designed to slip down the pole (12) if a force of over five pounds is applied. Therefore, if the line becomes entangled around a child's neck, the line will come down avoiding harm. The target-board game also has a clip-on target-board (60) having a VELCRO.RTM. target-face (62). A safe projectile (70) having a VELCRO front section (74) is used to toss at the target-face (62).

Articles of play for use in the game of catch

The multi-layer mitt includes a rigid concave rear layer, a first intermediate flexible layer, a second intermediate flexible layer, and said front layer of VELCRO.
