Recently I received a nice email from Chris Gill from the United Kingdom. He put together this nice Garden Games document below to play other games using just a few of the Tossing Games listed on this site (i.e. Molkky, Bocce and Kubb):
RE: .DOC Attachment Here - 3.1MB
I have recently got into some of the scandinavian games mentioned on your site and have been greatly interested in the information you have provided.
By putting together some basic items I have managed to make up a games set very cheaply with which you can play many traditional games and the games on your site.
I bought a Molkky set which provided the basic items (12 numbered skittles) and added 2 larger King pins, 6 tossing batons, 9 flags and 2 sets of Bocce balls. With these items you can play Molkky, Kubb, Tournament of Knights, Irish skittles, Aunt Sally, Boules/Bocce, 9 pin skittles, 10pin bowling and 5 pin bowling. I also added 4 loops of cord to mark out playing arenas and added my own scoreboard.
I am incredibly pleased to have worked out (with help from your site) this list of equipment and the amount of - very different - games you are able to play using them.
However, this is not the reason I am emailing you........
Whilst playing Molkky, I was reminded of some other games I used to play a while ago and wondered if you could adapt them for use with the equipment I had ... and it was easy!
To that end, I wrote up an instruction booklet (many notes taken from rules on your site) to remind me of the different games I can play. See Attachment Link Above. And to this I added 5 new games that we have been playing.
I thought you may like to take a look at the booklet I came up with (attached) - in particular can I draw your attention to the last 5 games which I have never seen mentioned on your website. These are CrickSkit, Skittle Football, Skittle Golf, Round the Clock and Clock Battle.
Let me know what you think ... for most of them you just need the single Molkky or Kubb set.
