Welcome. We are an Australian designer and merchant of properly crafted traditional games. We do not believe in fads or whims and think the best games are those that have stood the test of time. Our games are real, not virtual and exercise mind and body (not just thumbs). They are interactive in the real sense of the word and are a catalyst for family and friends to socialise, laugh and create memories. Where timber is involved, we always use environmentally responsible hardwood.
We can still play.
Winter. Who says its time to rug up and stay indoors! We are fortunate in this part of the world that our Winter days in many parts can be sunshine and blue skies. Picnics, barbecues and outdoor fun are very possible!
Many of our games make perfect gifts for the hard to buy for. We are often asked if a certain game is suitable for a particular age or gender. It is not always easy to answer. We do not know of an age bracket or gender that does not want to play and have fun. Our first game Finska, is a testament to that. The overriding feedback we get is that our age inclusive games frequently bridge the generation gap.
If you are not new to Planet Finska and looking for your next thing, we encourage Finska tragics to check out Kubb. Kubb is Finska's Swedish wood throwing cousin. An entirely different game, Kubb is hugely social and perfect for a larger group at the beach or on the lawn. A recent customer quote says it all, "Tried Finska. Loved it. Tried Kubb. Loved it even more".
Also in August we are excited to be launching our new reinvented Bocce and "bygga" our jumbo outdoor party sized version of the classic tower game Jenga.
