- Brent Doud

When you think of the 4th of July you think America, fireworks, barbeques and of course, entertainment. Outdoor games can add some friendly rivalry to any backyard gathering giving you and your guests hours of backyard fun. We have all heard of the classic games like Bocce Ball , horseshoes and Cornhole, but what about the games that you have never heard of?

Numbered Skittles a.k.a Molkky

Numbered Skittles or Mokkly as the Finnish call it is relatively new to the outdoor games world but the simple tossing game that combines a little luck and a lot of skill is becoming more and more popular. The game set comes with one throwing pin, 12 wooden skittles numbered 1 through 12. You simply setup the numbered skittles and start tossing the throwing pin at them. Each player(s) from opposing teams alternate throwing and earn points depending on which pins they knock down. If you knock over more than 1 skittle, each skittle down counts as 1 point. If you only knock over 1 skittle, then you get the points value on that downed skittle. The team who earns exactly 50 points first is the winner however; if you go over you receive a penalty that reduces your score back to 25 points! This Numbered Skittles game is made in the USA too!
