Mario Doesn’t Scoot Down This Street…

The next set of games featured in the 2017 Garderen Sand exhibition has one that I have never heard of before… the others I know. Any suggestions about the first one would be most appreciated!

(Number 15) Some kind of street scene where dice form out of the wall and there is some kind of rolled-up section at the end. No clue what this game is… Regular reader Marie-Jacqueline thinks that this one is called: “STRAATJELEGGEN,  Found only a Dutch explication (Wikipedia) It explains the dices.  The stones to make a street
Iseen dobbelspel, dat met 6 stenen wordt gespeeld en dat met een onbeperkt aantal personen kan worden gespeeld. I never heard of the game. ”

(Number 16) A favourite of my children.. Mario Bros (but when one player gets too far ahead, the other behind dies… that where the game in our house disintegrates after a while a playing brilliantly with each other) I am without doubt the worst player at Mario Kart, never gaining anything higher than last place. Luckily it’s not like driving a real car.

(Number 17) I think this one might be called “Schule” but am not certain, the aim is to scoot the wooden discs down the board and into the different numbered slots at the end (highest number of point from the totaled numbers wins). Reader Marie-Jacqueline came to my aid and confirmed this but corrected my terrible spelling error (my apologies to the Dutch language): “You write it: Sjoelen

  2. Nr. 15 is this I think:
    STRAATJELEGGEN

    Found only a Dutch explication (Wikipedia)

    It explains the dices.
    The stones to make a street
    Iseen dobbelspel, dat met 6 stenen wordt gespeeld en dat met een onbeperkt aantal personen kan worden gespeeld.

    I never heard of the game.
