What is Mölkky?

If you’re looking for an outdoor activity that is both challenging and fun, then you should try out the Finnish throwing game, Mölkky. This sport is simple to learn but can be addictive, as players strive to get higher scores.

How to play Molkky?

Mölkky is played by two to twenty six people on a grassy field or playground. The object of the game is to score 50 points exactly. Skittles are arranged in a triangle, at a distance of approximately 10 feet to 3-4 meters the Molkky is thrown at the Skittles.

When a player knocks over 1 Skittle the player receives the number of points on that pin, i.e. 1 – 12 points. If the player knocks over more than one Skittle the player receives points for the number of pins knocked over. So for example when the player knocks over 3 Skittles he or she scores 3 points.

Extra tips:

1) 3 strikes your out!
2) When a pin is leaning to another one it does not count.
3) When your score gets over 50 points, your points are reset to 25.
