Mölkky is a combination of chance and skill that is quick to learn and 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. If they get more than 50, their score will be knocked back down to 25.

Mölkky can be enjoyed in any outdoor space – from a back garden to the local park. Play one-on-one or get a team together. All ages and fitness levels are welcome.

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.
