Historien Spielegalerie existed/exists to publish the games of Jean du Poel. These games are handmade, adhering to the "SpielKunst" ethos, producing a game as if it were an object of art.

Historien Spielegalerie began publishing in 1985, and ceased active operations in 2003 or so. However, Jean du Poel did exhibit at the Essen Fair at least one more time after 2004.

Games produced by Historien Spielegalerie feature handsome components, typically the boardgames have a silkscreened faux leather map and silkscreened wooden pieces. Game cards are also hand silkscreened. Basic editions were usually sold in a tube, with deluxe editions coming in a wooden box. Some cardgames came with deluxe wooden cards.

Rules are also silkscreened, which unfortunately tended to allow the printing to stick to the facing page, causing the rules to get a bit smudged. It must be said that Jean du Poel's rule sets often seem silent on all facets of how to play the game, leaving the reader grasping for comprehension of what was intended.

Go Bang Plus is a variant on the basic game of Go Bang, also known as Go-Moku. The game can be played by two, three, or four players, and players work to get rows of four or five in a row based on the number of players. The game is played in rounds; the winner of each round gets one point and players play to a fixed number of rounds or points.

The game is meaningfully different from Go-Moku to be considered a different game. Not only can the game accommodate different numbers of players, but also the players can push other their pieces if all pieces have been played yet no one has yet won.

BGG info has the released as 1985. Luding lists it as 1994. I found another site listing it as 1993.

Offered in basic version (tube). Last known retail price: 42 euro

This is a childrens game. Each player is trying to deliver Easter eggs to nests, using three rabbits shared by all. The large board shows rabbit tracks, and nests that will hold specific styles of Easter eggs. Using dice, players move any or all three of the rabbits, trying to reach nests that that need the specific eggs that the player can deliver.

Release date is unclear. BGG data says it was in 1984. But Jean du Poel's website says The American Goldrush was his first game, released in December of 1985.

Pictured is the original Historien Spielgalerie release, "Tangram Duett". Here is a picture of the early components:


Each player has a tangram set (a square, a parallelogram, two small triangles, one medium triangle, and two large triangles). The basic puzzle is to assemble them into a square. However, the game comes with cards showing various shapes that can be made. The two player game is to race to be first to form the shape, but just trying to solve the puzzles is an absorbing solitaire game.

Release date is unclear. BGG info is 1984. But Jean du Poel's own website claims The American Goldrush was his first game, from December 1985.

Offered as a basic 2-player version (tube). Last known retail price: 42 euro

Also offered as an extended 4-player version (tube). last known retail price: 56 euro

The BGG description is a bit terse. A simple game of ammonite racing. A die is rolled to determine how far the pieces move, but which ones move is determined by a played card, and the order they are moved in is up to the player. This description applies to the second edition published in 1993. The first edition (from 1986) apparently did not use the cards.





Released in 1986.

Logomaus is a word game. The game includes a deck of cards, each showing one letter of the alphabet. As with many games of this type, there are multiple cards of the more common letters but only single cards of the ones least used.



Players are dealt a set of cards, and on a turn can either take two cards from the draw deck and then optionally may discard one, or they can take only the top card from the discard pile. They then can form words, with a minimum of three letters.

The game has two scoring options. One uses pebbles, and at the end of each round pebbles are awarded for longest word, most words, and for use of the letters with only a single card. The other option is to use the included board. Players start at the 10 spot, and earn points for words as above but lose a point for each card not used.

Released in 1986.

Offered in a basic version (linen bag). Last known retail price: 28 euro

Ben Hur is, of course, a chariot racing game. Players move their chariots by playing cards from their hand, and then using the appropriate miniature wargame-style ruler to move their chariot forward.

Movement cards may be drawn from the standard deck or a higher-risk-higher-reward deck. There are also rules for engaging your competitors in dirty tricks such as whipping them to distraction.

Released in 1987.

9. Board Game: Mandarin [Average Rating:7.35 Unranked]

Mandarin is a Halma or Chinese Checkers variation. As du Poel did with Go Bang Plus and Tangram Duett, he has created a new game based on the principles of a classic game and the result a new design that works very well.

Mandarin is played on a long-ish board, and each player places their figures (servants) on their home court. Figures can move one space or jump over others, with the goal to bring all of your pieces to the other side.

The game works well because of two additions. First, each player has a Mandarin that starts on a temple space and must end on his opponent's temple. If the Mandarin is hit, it returns to its home temple. Second, the game includes seven blockade discs. These are placed at the beginning of the game, and the rules offer four variations on how to treat them.

Released in 1987.

Inspired by the 19th century war between Prussia and Austria, this is a tactical-level battle game. The two-sided color map features various terrain in a triangular grid.





Units, including different types of infantry and cavalry, are represented by wooden disks. Target locations are indicated with flags placed at the intersection of the triangles. Victory is won by controlling the spaces around these key locations or by defeating the enemy field marshal.

Seido is a domino-style game. The game includes a number of wooden tiles with cut edges such that, laid together, six tiles form a ring. Each tile shows two symbols (or a blank on one side), these being triangles, circles, and squares in three forms. Players roll a die to determine how many tiles will be placed on a turn, and score when they create three-way intersections of matching symbols. Also, if a player completes a circle, all other players must draw another tile. The game ends when one player places all of their tiles.

Released in 1988.

In the late 1800's, the first Canadian lumberjack challenge took place. The race starts at the shore of the river, where many fallen trees lie. The Lumberjacks run over these, topple a tree, and race back. The first to return wins.

Most of the movement is completed by rolling dice and using pips for movement. The dangers of crossing the logs are represented via cards. Players who suffer too much damage must rest, before continuing.

Released in 1988.

In the ancient lands along the Mediterranean, players attempt to satisfy their unique victory conditions via trade, war and construction. This lavishly produced game contains tons of wooden game components and a beautiful roll-out faux-leather map. Players produce a score of different commodities to trade with other cities in the hope of creating enough income to fill their capitals with buildings, produce artwork, and fill warehouses with goods.

This is an abstract, three-player game with chess-like piece movement. The board is a hex with spaces shown in circles, and each player has 10 pieces: four pawns, two knights, two paladins, one marshal, and one duke. The goal of a player is to get his duke to the center board space at a time when he cannot be attacked by an opposing figure on their next turn.



The theme is that three dukes are vying to be named the monarch of Germany in the 13th century. The game is designed for three players, making it less common, however it can be played with two as well.

Soldateska is a trick-taking card game themed around Prussian military life. Players attempt to win tricks by playing various dueling cards such as pistols and sabers. The most successful duelist will attain the highest rank; while the inept will become a traitor. Complicating things are a bomb, snuff, and Kokette, who officers cannot help but spend their money upon.

In 2011 Jean du Poel returned to Essen with a new game, Backgammon Circle. This Backgammon variant is based on an illustration of the games book of Alfonso el sabio X., dated around 1200. Rules are very similar to Backgammon.

Release date is unclear (see below), but may be 1993. Game was released by 1994, since it was in the catalog Joe references. BGG data says 2011, which is in error.
