dazu gefunden (Geschichte/Spielregeln): The Tramway Spel

H.R. D’Allemagne notes the first occurrence of a French Jeu du Tramway at about 1855.3 Thereafter, several editions are found in France, Germany, Italy and the Low Countries: these continue into the twentieth century, with updating to electric propulsion instead of the original horses. The edition of the Tramway Game shown in figure 1 was published by the Amsterdam firm of J. Vlieger in about 1885 for the Dutch firm of van Houten, manufacturers of drinking chocolate.4 Like all other editions, it is a two-track variant of the Game of Goose, played with the usual double dice. Here, the red track is followed kann anticlockwise towards the centre (as in normal Goose) while the blue track runs clockwise away from the centre. The favourable goose-type spaces, where the throw is doubled, are indicated by horses’ heads, in two interwoven sequences. One sequence follows the traditional regular spacing by nines, on 9, 18, 27 etc, while the other sequence is somewhat irregular and di∆ers slightly as between the two tracks. The dice spaces, which come into e∆ect to prevent an immediate win on an initial throw of 6, 3 or 5, 4 are here represented by the conducteur (conductor) and koetsier (coachman) respectively. The traditional hazards of Goose have been adapted quite cleverly to the problems likely to occur on the tramway. Thus, whereas in traditional Goose the death space (’start again’) is at 58, here the equivalent rule applies to the verkeerd spoor (wrong track) space at 32 red and 31 blue, which shows two trams meeting head on. The Goose prison and well hazards have their counterparts in the brug (bridge) and wissel (crossing) spaces, the rule ‘wait until released by another’ being given added piquancy by requiring that the release must be made by a player from the team of the opposite colour, who then has to wait in turn. This waiting for the oncoming tram at a single-track bridge or a crossing point must have been all too familiar in real life. Finally, the delays of the Goose inn and labyrinth spaces have their counterparts in the derailleert (derailed) and the versche paarden (fresh horses) – pay the initial stake again and miss one turn. With these ingenious substitutions, the Tramway game is both realistic and playable and indeed must have been popular, judging by the number of new editions over the years. The only way in which the Vlieger game distinguishes itself from other, non-promotional, editions is that the tramcar bears an advertising slogan (above the normal direction indicator): Van Houten’s Cacao – beste goedkoopste in gebruik (Van Houten’s drinking chocolate – best and cheapest in use). This, then, is an example of the simplest way of adapting a game for advertising purposes: add a distinctive slogan but leave the game unaltered. The target of this advertising was probably the family, rather than children specifically. A contemporary Nieuw Vermakelijk Gansenspel (New entertaining Game of the Goose) also published by J. Vlieger shows in its central oval the game being played by a family, the mother (presumably) assisting the youngest child, with the grandmother and three other children. By the late nineteenth century, the Game of Goose had shed its association with gambling but not until the early twentieth century was it recognised as a game specifically for children.
