Mölkky

A few weeks ago we bought a couple of scratch cards from our neighbours son Louis, with all money raised going towards his school and we won a prize – yippee. But what had we won?? A game called Mölkky. Still none the wiser we had to ask Google for some help and it turned out it was a game similar to skittles but with a twist. The object of the game is to get exactly 50 points by throwing the wooden baton, called a Mölkky, at the skittles. If you knock down more than 1 skittle you score the number of skittles, but if you only knock down 1 skittle you score the number on the skittle. If you miss all the skittles 3 times in a row, you’re out and if you go over 50 your score is reduced to 25 points. What makes this a little different, is the skittles are stood back up where they fall, so their positions change all the time. This is going to be a perfect summer game.
