INVENTED BY TS CALADAN
I have been contacted recently by a fellow promoting his own version of soccer and saw mine listed on 'Top-End Sports,' a site that has been bold enough to show radical sport innovations. Here is an email I sent the man & told him "Take my games, please." There's a chance that the investors/promoters he encounters could be impressed at one or more of my games/sports? The following is a rundown of my one patent and other unique games for you viewers interested in Something Completely Different. You are very welcome to contact me about them, forward the page with a link to others...and maybe we can help make the future NOW!
Better 'mousetraps' should be developed and explored rather than being ignored. We're stuck thinking we can't do any better than our antique, obsolete games. Of course, we can improve our games or anything! We only have to be allowed to think differently and be open to new ideas. Don't fear change.

Here's a bit about my games. The one not on the sports site could be the biggest internationally, look how big chess is and has been in Europe, Russia & really every country. If you could come up with an interesting innovation, new twist on a very old game: wow! That's what I've done! If you look up the patent, you can't get the COLOR and scope of the game. I'll explain: My 3 games are inexpensive to make. The color combinations determine what game you are playing. Pawns are small, solid domes or cabochons - the larger piece [only 2 pieces per game] is a bigger, hollow dome like a bowl that's CLEAR with slight color that you can tell red from blue / turquoise from purple and orange from green. Clear to see if a pawn ("void") is inside or not. Like diagram shows, when in combination, a QUEEN is formed! Talk about fast-action with multiple queens easily made in one move and un-made in one move. Knight-game could be most interesting since knights are made to attack queens. I like the idea of NO KING~
Next, my pride & joy: NEEDED innovation. No sport cries out
more for innovation than tennis (including baseball). My game, a sport
I've followed & played for 45 years. More than 15 years ago I realized
the old court was way too large, never built for fast speeds! Remember
what racquets looked like in Victorian age: rug-beaters & ball traveled in
slow-motion compared to tremendous speeds reached with today's super
racquets~ Well, that court from 1800s is used today: now tennis is all power,
no finesse, no net-play because there's no time to get there. SERVES
were only meant to start the point, not dominate the entire game. Service
courts are much too large, same with court. No time to reach the shots.
A beautiful sport has become BORING & unpopular since court dimensions
have not compensated for super-speeds the ball now travels. Future courts
must be smaller. ROVAL IS SMALLER & LINELESS. Imagine a court with no
lines or lines-people. Whole new/faster scoring system called 'Streamline
Scoring' has been developed for Roval where each point is worth 1 more
than previous point, which accelerates to quick games & quick sets.
No deuces, ads, tie-breaks, lets or foot-faults in this tennis of the future...
Smaller field, less outfielders, less infielders, farther for pitcher & RECESSED INFIELD!
I designed a TRI-BALL stadium. (I'm a dreamer). "If you build it,
they will come." I think even middle-America, Bible-belt, might be ready
to change. Oh, the firestorm Tri-Ball would cause by fundamentalists:
How dare you change our beloved baseball? I think it's time...way overdue.
Idea is to score goals & best way is to eliminate opponents: hit them with the ball! So hard they can't catch it. They catch it, you're out of the game, like Dodgeball. Only 1 opponent allowed in S.P.A. area in front of goal. Remember to quick toss to teammate to throw in goal @ different angle, like Water-Polo. That's difficult with only 1 person of opposite team allowed in Single Player Area.
Judgement call for referee: You cannot throw @ opponent within 5 feet, that's too easy an Out. Player with ball must be beyond 5 feet from opponent. Ref can toss thrower out if they attack within 5 feet. Players never return. No substitutions.
Here’s a safe (high-tech) game that has no ball or physical contact: “BEAMER!” Not Touch-Football or Flag-Football, “Beamer” is an excellent game for any athlete of any sport. Four Offense players wear lightweight (sensitive-to-laser beam) packs or TARGETS strapped on their backs and run out from center in different directions, simultaneously. Offense runners hold a small SHIELD that blocks the beams shot by Defense players.
Four Defense players carry handheld lasers called “beamers” and run with 4 Offense players after the first 5 yards. Lasers resemble Star Wars light-sabers (handles) or flashlights and fire unseen beams. Defense player’s job is to shoot and strike the Offense’s target [turns OFF light] backpack before player crosses outer circle.
Scores add up quickly every round as some runners make it beyond outer ring. Offense changes to Defense and vice versa. Leagues could be created, each with teams of four. Various scoring methods could be employed that use marked circles. # of rounds have to be determined in the game. Men should play against women and youngsters play against older teams.
BEAMER is a 4-way, mad dash to the goal instead of a single runner that may never score. Players will develop skills with their Shield to fend off [void] laser blasts from Defenders. The handheld “beamer” takes a second or two to recharge after each shot. Only a few blasts happen in one outward sprint in one round, which insures that a runner or more will score each round.
No. It’s not football. But it’s safe and casualty-free for our youth. We should be thinking along these lines for the sake and safety of the next generation. Use technology for fun. Let’s make positive changes, tweak dangerous sports and input whole new directions without placing anyone in Harm’s Way. Sports can remain fast and exciting after changes: Is a drastic overhaul in accepted games the answer? Maybe the answer is using imagination, intelligence and logic to solve problems, realize solutions and then have the courage to install and promote new systems? ~ TS Caladan

I didn't invent rounded pool table, but I did invent 3 ways to knock a ball in based on my chess game-colors. Now color-combos determine how balls can go in:
Hope you enjoyed my display of unique games. I seriously want you to consider them yours, in a sense. THEY'RE JUST COLLECTING DUST. No one sees them. I have tried so many other things: historical, astronomical, Atlantis/Tesla theories, ancient mysteries, art, my books, etc., really...Games, as cool and fresh, as they are...are about the last things I ever thought I'd be known for. So thanks. Maybe your connections might work or turn to something positive & we can help each other. Show them everything, why not? We certainly can work out a fair % in a contract if there is a nibble down the line. Please send this email to all those who are part of your project.
Thanks again, ______.
Same for viewers of Out of Mind.
