Dutch Games

Last month Dutch Games introduced a new product: Sjoelen Score Sheet Pads

We now include 2 sheets with every sjoelbak and they are available for purchase on our website: dutchgames.us

We created this product to encourage playing sjoelen the right way, using the official game rules.

In the Netherlands where the game originates the rules are written and adopted by the ANS (algemene nederlandse sjoelbond) These rules are also enforced by the different sjoelen world cup committees.

The Sjoelen Score sheet comes in pads of 25 sheets and each sheet has room for 8 players to play 3 games each. Each game consists of 3 throws and there is a box to check which throw has been completed. The 3 scores would be totaled to determine the overall winner.

At the bottom of each sheet is a summary of some of the main rules of sjoelen

Our goal at Dutch Games is to develop a dedicated group of players and clubs that sjoel by the official rules. Hopefully soon we can start sending US or Canadian players to represent our country in International competition and who are able to compete well. 

We also hope that people use these score pads to enhance the gaming experience and to encourage some healthy competition. We believe that it is good that every player is held to the same standards.

Enjoy the Game!
