We just got this really great game from Finland!!  This game is called Molkky and it is a ton of fun.  It reminds me of lawn bowling but it is full of fun and full of laughs.  It comes in this really nice wooden crate with ropes attached for carrying.  It’s really well made and holds the pieces so everything stays together.  Since it’s best played outside and the pieces are all wooden it’s nice to have a carrying case that is well made and will hold the pieces without falling apart.  The skittle or pieces are also wooden, and really well made.  I love the look of this set, it’s very beautifully done.  They are wooden and they are going to last a lifetime.  You get the 12 skittles that are used for playing and one throwing skittle.

The game play is pretty easy.  You set up the skittles in a circle to begin and use the throwing skittle to try to knock them over.  You get points based on what you knock over.  If you only knock over one you get the number on that skittle so for example if I knock over the #7 skittle then I get 7 points.  If you knock over more then one skittle then your score is how many skittles you knocked over (they only count if they are not leaning on any other skittles or the throwing skittle), for example if I knock over 4 skittles my score is 4.  Once you take your turn you set up the skittle where they land and the next player plays.  So as you can see it can get a lot more difficult to knock them over depending on where they land.  You keep taking turns until someone lands on 50 by exact count, if the person goes over, their score goes back to 25 and you keep playing.  It comes with a manual that has instructions and score sheets.  We had a lot of fun playing this game and it was fun introducing a game from another country to the kiddos.

Here is some additional information from the company:

  • The #1 outdoor game in Europe!
  • There are two ways to accumulate points: Add the numbers on the pins you knock down or add the total number of fallen pins
  • A combination of luck and skill are the components needed to win this entertaining game!
