Ah een sjoelbak! Dat is lang geleden! Ziet er goed uit.

For those of you who don’t know what it is: It is a game whereby the player slides (with some force) the round pieces in the fourth picture along the long runway of the playing area and aims to get the pieces in one of the four cubbies that are at the end. It’s been at least 40 years since I played it. Oh, nostalgia!

-- As if I needed another hobby!

And I played the game, many times, while visiting MY Dutch friends, in Holland.


The Sjoelbak is a skill that is also called table glide or sometimes billiards Holland, although the latter designation covers several widespread games in Holland in the nineteenth century. The Sjoelbak finds its origin in the game of shuffleboard table, also known as shuffleboard. Two lines are drawn at the end of a table: one to about 10 centimeters, the other to a meter. The rollers can be launched or dragged. The goal is to put his wheel to the end of the table without crashing.

Game Rules

The player has three attempts to enter the largest number of chips into four compartments numbered 1 to 4.
After the first and second run, the player takes the chips that are not entered in the lockers.
The others remain fixed and will not be recorded until the end of the third test.
Scoring : A puck placed in each trap, to form a line, counts double, 20 points. 1 +2 +3 +4×2 = 20 points
Note : The maximum score is 148 points 28 pucks forming 7 rows 140 points 2 `+ chips into the locker worth 4 points 8 points

By the way your surface is to stiff.
It has to be very smooth put some wax on it.
The best surface is playwood of marranti or aok
