Finska is an ancient and seriously addictive log-tossing game from Finland. Trust those quirky Finns, to invent a game that's simple, ridiculously good fun and cunningly tactical.
A race to exactly 50 points, where every game is different, Finska requires strategy and skill to defeat your opponent and claim victory. Having gained enormous popularity globally, World Championships are now played each year in Lahti, Finland. We think it is only a matter of time before an Australian team competes with the world's best in Finland.
This game is dangerously addictive.
What is Finska?
Your next picnic, barbeque, party, wedding, Christmas Day, camping trip or summer holiday will be more fun with Finska.
Finska is easy to learn
Finska is simple. But don't be fooled. Finska is far from boring. Unlike pure games of skill like bowling or bocce, Finska requires tactics and strategy to be victorious. To find out more, watch our short video or read our simple how to play Finska guide.
Finska can be played just about anywhere outdoors and is perfect on grass, sand and even snow! It's the ultimate entertainment accessory for your holiday, beach trip or day at the park. It goes well in your own backyard too - a clear area 3 metres by 7 metres is all you need.
Finska is healthy
Anything that gets the kids off the couch and off their electronic gizmos has got to be healthy. Finska is actively interactive and is the perfect way to get outside, get some fresh air and have a few laughs with friends and family.
Who loves Finska ?
Just about everyone. As much as the kids love it, Finska is a truly great game for all. Time and time again we've been told how Finska is an excellent way to get the young ones and the oldies doing something where everyone has a great time.
The lads love Finska over a few beers but we also know of several groups of ladies who have renamed happy hour as their "ginska and finska" hour. Even the grey nomads have got in on the act. Having the time of their lives (in the prime of their lives) large Finska tournaments are regularly hosted by the Australian Caravan Club at their musters all over Australia.
Schools also love Finska because it makes numeracy fun. The kids think they're just playing. We call that education by stealth.
