classic games.

good times.

games of substance

Welcome.  We are Australia's leading designer and merchant of properly crafted traditional games.

We believe in design and craftsmanship that is consistent with the origin and tradition of these classic games.  We do not believe in fads or whims and think the best games are those with substance that have stood the test of time for generations.  Our games are real, not virtual and exercise both mind and body.  They are interactive in the truest sense and a catalyst for family and friends to socialise, laugh and create memories.  Where timber is involved, we always use environmentally responsible sources and prefer quality hardwoods so that our products are built to last and crafted the way they should be.

It's not cold! get outside

In case you haven't noticed, in most parts of Australia the cold weather has not yet hit so there is still 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.  Last August we launched Noppa,  our new and enormously good fun yard dice game.  We 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.
