classic games.

good times.

games of substance

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.

it's spring! get outside


Yay! Spring has sprung.  Warmer weather and longer days means more time to grab that picnic rug or fire up the barbecue and get outside.

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".

Feel free also to check out our new and reinvented designs.  This August we launched Noppa,  our new and enormously good fun yard dice game.  We have also added the mind bending Bermuda Triangle brain teaser and for the competitively minded a two player racing version of the classic Tangram puzzle.  Finally, our beautiful and popular version of the Italian classic bocce now comes in a premium carry bag as well as the wooden crate variety we launched in 2016.
