Event description

Description

Bring your talents for a family-friendly, tournament style event. The name of the game, Finska, the Finnish throwing game that obliges skill and precision, but above all a strategical mindset!

For Finns, this marvellous game is known as mölkky, but Down Under, we simply call it Finska. Suitable for ages 7 to 107, so choose a partner wisely, to be sure your performance on the day is remembered fondly.

Based on the centuries old game, kyykkä, rules today are much the same, first team to fifty wins but miss three times in a row to cop a loss on the chin.

Register now for your chance at glory, a prize that will have you grinning (…and sweating) far from worry. Hurry, as spaces are limited to the first 32 teams of two.

Teams will initially contend in pools, thereby deciding the finalists competing in a knockout-style tournament. If your time in the limelight is cut short, no worries you gave it try, it just means time for a Finnish pie!

For those coveting their own Finska sets crafted from eco-friendly birch, they will be available from our organising partner Planet Finska™ along with an array of sustainably produced outdoor and indoor timber games to satisfy your search.

We welcome everyone to come and watch the duelling teams of FinskaFest all in the spirit of the heralded Finnish Crazy Games. So please join us for yet another fun way to learn all about Finland right here in Australia.
