Title: FOOTBALL SIMULATING MECHANICAL TABLETOP SOCCER GAME WITH UNDER-FIELD CONTROL RODS
Abstract:
The playfield of the football simulating mechanical tabletop soccer game is painted like a football pitch and is equipped with goals on the two shorter sides of the field (in the front and in the back). The field is bordered by four walls and contains further heightening (plank heightening). The aim of the game is to get the ball into the opponent's goal. The football players (figures) can make rotary movement perpendicular to the field parallel with the longitudinal direction of the pitch, while they can make sliding movements parallel with the shorter sides of the field. If the ball is well selected the players (figures) can play with it not only by rolling it flatly, but also by lifting it into the air, improving by this the entertainment value of the game. In the vertical opening of the figure (3) representing the football player the top gear (14) is fixed on the crosswise figure axle (9), while the bottom gear (13) is fixed on the control rod (10). The link between the two is established by the gear rack (8) the lower geared part of which is engaged into the bottom gearwheel (13), while the top geared part is engaged into the top gearwheel (14). The link between the gearwheels (13) and (14) and the gear rack (8) is established by the gear housing (12) which comprises them, where the back wall of the gear rack (8) is sliding on the inner back wall of the gear housing (12). The control rod (10) and the figure axle (9) are turning in the bottom and top holes of the gear housing (12). The control rod (10) is led in the holes of the supporting element (16) under the field plate (1 ). By turning the control rod the bottom gearwheel (13) also rotates, this movement is transferred by the gear rack (8) to the top gearwheel (14). Since the top gearwheel (14), the figure axle (9) and the figure (3) are firmly fixed to each other, the figure (3) also turns in the top part of the gear housing (12), thus hitting the ball. The gear housing (12) and the gear rack (8) are moving in the opening (2) of the field plate (1 ).
