Description Edit | History

Sjoelen (Dutch) is also less commonly known as Dutch Shuffleboard (English) or Jakkolo (German). This dexterity game is particularly popular in the Netherlands, where it originated, hence Sjoelen is the official designation for the game. The World Championships are held every two years, with the most recent event in Czechoslovakia (15-16 May, 2015), and the next event planned for France (2017).

Playing involves each player having three rounds of sliding 30 wooden disks along a 2 metre long table in an attempt to get them through four arches numbered 1 to 4 at the other end. Getting disks into the low scoring compartments is just as important as the high ones because each set of 4 disks in the four compartments scores double (20 instead of 10 points).

Note that sjoelbak is the name of the board, not the game itself.

More Information Edit | History

Sjoelen is a Dutch variation of shuffleboard. It makes use of a long, unidirectional board placed on a table in which the goal is to slide 30 wooden pucks towards the end of the board and try to have them enter through small open doorways or arches into numbered scoring boxes. Each player has 3 sub-turns to get as many pucks in the scoring boxes. The boxes are numbered from left to right: 2, 3, 4 and 1. The most intriguing rule is that for each set of pucks (a puck in every box) they count double so instead of 10 points for a set you will get 20 points for each set. The maximum score is 148 which is accomplished by getting 7 pucks in 2, 7 pucks in 3, 9 pucks in 4 and 7 pucks in 1. It totals to 7 × 20 + 4 + 4 = 148. The most famous manufacturers of sjoelbakken (sjoelen boards) are Homas, Heemskerk Sport and Schilte, who mass-produce the game for the continental European market and more recently North America. - Adapted from Wikipedia
