Molkky Wooden Skittles from Tactic **REVIEW**

Now that the sun in shining we have been trying to get the kids outdoors more and enjoy the beautiful sunshine in the garden. Now the kids are a little older I have been on the look out for new garden toys, games and equipment to keep them entertained all summer, so when we were offered the chance to try out a Molkky wooden skittles set we couldn't wait to give it a try.

Molkky is one of the latest craze's in Finland and this Eco friendly game made from solid wood with minimal packaging making it friendly on the environment as well as lots of fun! The game is quick and easy to set up and simple to play.

The rules are simple, each of the skittles is numbered 1-12 (it tells you exactly how to set the skittles up to start on the instructions leaflet). Once the skittles are set up each player takes it in turns to throw the blank/plain wooden block at the skittles. The winner of the game is the first person to make it to 50 points by adding up all the skittles you hit down on each turn. But beware if you go over 50 points your score is automatically pushed down to 25!

The game is lots of fun and something we all enjoyed playing as a family. It was particularly great for James as not only was he having fun but learning at the same time with some quick adding skills needed to total up his score. Although Evelyn was obviously too young (shes almost 4) to add up her score (we helped her with this) she still loved the game and as its quite fast paced she wasn't waiting around too long for her next turn.

You don't need lots of space for this game so any garden would be fine. It also comes in a handy box with a handle so you can transport it and carry it around with you for playing on the go. The game is manufactured from wood that has been logged from sustainably managed forests with the PEFC-certificate. Making Mölkky an environmentally friendly way to enjoy some fresh air and a little friendly competition whether that's one on one or in a group of great friends, the more the merrier. 

Molkky is from the Tactic Games range who have an awesome range of garden games for the whole family, so do definitely check out their range if you are looking for some new garden fun this summer. You can purchase the Molkky set from Tesco or Amazon and it is priced at £15.00.

What is your favourite garden game to play in the summer?
