Sjoelen (pronounced "shoo-lun") is a traditional Dutch variant of shufflepuck. It is played on a wooden board with four compartments at the back. The aim is to slide 30 wooden pucks ("stones") into the compartments in three rounds. After each round, the stones left on the board are collected for the next. The four compartments are good for 2, 3, 4, and 1 point, respectively. One stone in each compartment yields a bonus of 10 points, so it pays to try and distribute the stones evenly.

This game is played by Dutch people of all ages, from "old enough not to try and eat the pucks" to "young enough to stand losing from your grand children". Why dont you join in and try your aim?

Pros and cons of Sjoelen app for iPhone and iPad

Sjoelen app good for

I love the new fix. The board is a lot smoother and i can make it all the way down much more.
This has become one of my favorite apps. The idea is simple but challenging. The recent update has greatly improved the smoothness of the gameplay. Its really addictive.
Great casual game! Games are pretty quick, but take real skill and strategy to win. Dev is super responsive and helpful if you have any suggestions, too!
A great realistic version of the original which we enjoy. Wish it had two player option to play against friends. A daily high score board would be nice rather than the static all-time high scores.

Some bad moments

This game needs a smoother(sensitive) touch control. Otherwise it OK for .99c
Seriously guys. The controls completely ruin an otherwise good game. Its impossible to get any power and consistency! Please fix.
Game is practically unplayable. The speed of the puck cant be controlled. It seems to randomly choose a speed. More accuracy is needed, until then i wont be playing this game.
Great idea for an app, clean graphics, but it is very difficult to finesse the speed of the pucks. Sometimes they just stick, or they go too fast.
