Mölkky Outdoor Game Review

The weather is glorious here in Yorkshire and My Three and Me are loving it. I’ve had three loads of washing dried, washed the car and cut the grass. The boys, on the other hand, have had their friends round to play and they’ve been having lots of fun with a new outdoor toy called Mölkky.

What is Mölkky?
Mölkky is a game that is a combination of fun, chance and skill, it is quick to learn and quite exciting to play. Players take turns to throw the Mölkky skittle to try and knock over various numbered pins. The aim of the game is to score exactly 50 points. But watch out, if you get more than 50, your score will be knocked back down to 25!

 Mölkky can be enjoyed in any outdoor space from your back garden to the local park. Play one-on-one or get a team together. It is a game that is suitable for players of all ages and fitness levels. 
The Mölkky game is originally from Päijänne, in Southern Finland, where it has been played for centuries. It is the most popular outdoor game in the Nordic countries and it is gathering momentum all over the world!  Since 2004 several countries around the world take part in an Annual National Mölkky competition. Teams from all over the world gather to take part to be crowned World Champions! The 2018 world championship will be held in Pori, Finland – the home of Tactic Games OY where Molkky is manufactured. 
 
The skittle and pins are manufactured from wood that has been logged from sustainably managed forests with the PEFC-certificate. This makes Mölkky is an environmentally friendly way to enjoy some fresh air and a little friendly competition!  It is the perfect game to get family and friends together and can be purchased from Tesco for £15.

    Sounds like a fun little game. My niece and nephew would probably love this.
