I LOVE playing games with my family outdoors and during the Fall it is a little cooler out so we can actually play outside during the hottest part of the day and still enjoy ourselves. M?lkky is the fun outdoor lawn game for families that I only just recently learned about and it has quickly turned into a family favorite!
From Tactic Games USA comes M?lkky the addictive outdoor throwing game from Finland. Players take turns throwing a pin at the skittles to knock them over. First to 50 points without going over wins! It may sound easy but is not! It takes a combination of chance and throwing skill to get you to the point level you need.
Each M?lkky set includes a wooden carrying crate, 12 M?lkky skittles, 1 throwing Pin and the official M?lkky scorebook and instructions. M?lkky is 100% natural wood and no chemicals or toxins are used when producing these sets. M?lkky is ecologically friendly with wood that is sourced from 100% sustainable Finnish forests that have been awarded the PEFC certificate.
Players earn points by tossing the throwing pin. If a player knocks down more than 1 pin, their score for that turn is the number of pins they knocked down (4 pins = 4 points).
If a player can skillfully knock down just one pin, their score for that turns equals the number on the top of the pin (knock down the #10 pin = 10 points).
The pins often roll after they are knocked down and with each turn the pins are put back up exactly where they rolled from the previous turn, so the entire playing area starts to spread out.
The first player to knock down exactly 50 points wins the game, but be careful not to go over 50 points, or you will go back to 25 points!
The instruction booklet includes a scorecard that you can use to keep track of the points in each game but I HIGHLY suggest just downloading their app instead and keeping track of points using your phone!
It is college football season so this is now one of our tailgating games. We like to hangout and BBQ with friends before the game and now the kids and adults want to get in on a game of M?lkky. When it is just adults playing we sometimes change the rules up a bit to make it even harder. Such as only allowing so many complete misses and also upping the required points needed to win.
M?lkky is really fun to play and great for when you get a group of friends together for some fun outdoors. It is so satisfying to hear the thud of the skittles being hit and then of course our competitive sides come out and we each want to win! M?lkky would be great at birthday parties, camping trips, day trips to the beach and so much more!
