I was given these products in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are 100% my own.
We love games! My son and I have been known to play marathon monopoly games that last for days. I was very excited to see the unique selection of games at Tactic.net. Since the snow has finally melted, we picked an amazing Outdoor game- Molkky as well as 2 board games- for those rainy days when boredom is running wild.

Molkky: To play Mölkky, all you need is an outdoor space, a few friends, and a set of Mölkky pins! No physical strength is required: success is based on a combination of chance and throwing accuracy. The first player to knock down 50 points worth of pins with a Mölkky skittle wins!
Molkky is like a cross between bowling and Shuffleboard, but much more fun and exciting. The object of the game is to be the first to get to 50 points exactly. Each pin is numbered and is set up in a formation with the higher numbers in the middle. If a player knocks over just one pin, they get the number of points on the pin. If a player knocks multiple pins down, they receive that number added to their score. Each player gets 3 tries to knock the pins down with the “Skittle.” If you don’t hit the pins with the Skittle after 3 tries, that player is out and becomes the scorekeeper. My son and his friends really enjoyed this game! They got creative in different ways to set up the pins (even though that wasn’t in the rules) and got even more creative in the tie breaker that happened at the end. That’s the best part of games- you can follow the rules, but it’s much more fun to adapt them to your situation.
Molkky’s pins, skittles, and carrying case are all made our of high quality hardwood. I was very impressed with the quality of the game. The kids enjoyed every aspect of the game, even setting the pins back up. For younger children, it will help them with addition and problem solving. Once players get used to throwing the Skittle underhand with accuracy, they can aim for certain pins to enhance their scores.
I loved that Molkky is an outside game! Kids need to get back out in the sunshine and spend less time inside in front of the TV or computer.
Touche: A family game favourite now as a renewed edition! Whether you are playing in teams or individually, the aim of the game is the same: create as many different three-dimensional formations as possible.
Touche is a great family game for those rainy afternoons. My son and his friends picked up the rules really quickly. It seemed to take a little longer to set it up then I expected, but I’m sure the next time it will be much easier. The object of this game is to be the first to complete 4 patterns with your color markers. There are only 3 colors to play, so this is a great team game. If you have a big family that loves games, this is a great game for the whole family. It takes strategy and luck to complete all 4 patterns before the other teams or players.
I enjoyed playing this game with the boys. Of course, they didn’t like it that I was the first to make a pattern. The dealer gets to pick the pattern that they teams have to make. There are different examples to choose from or you can get very creative and make your own. My son and I have a few new patterns that we are going to try out next time.
We highly recommend Tactic Games for Family Game night, parties, reunions or just a rainy afternoon. I know many parents wouldn’t do this, but I would even play Molkky in our kitchen. As long as the skittle stays on the floor, we decided we would try it indoor next time.
