Lazy Sundays, daylight savings, sunny weather, great friends and yummy barbecue dinners, Summer season has kicked off (even if slightly hesitant to start with) so we christened it in style with a fun game of KLOP:
Originally born in beautiful Finland this super trendy game is now available in Australia and it’s tossing over Australians one KLOP at a time. KLOP (RRP $59.95) is a fun outdoor game for all ages, it’s perfect for birthdays in the garden, picnics at the park, afternoons on the beach, evenings at the caravan park and anywhere else you can get together with a group of people who love a good game.
Each KLOP game consist of 12 chunky wooden pegs, a ‘chuck’ and a score block, all neatly packed together in a sturdy wooden storage box with carry handle. The pegs are set up in starting position and you use the chuck to toss over the pegs, it has a bit of a Flintstones feel to it. You may think KLOP is just another ordinary bowling game but it is much more than that, it really gets your brain working as you use your strategic skills to reach the required score.
All players take turns tossing the chuck to knock over the pegs, obviously you can set any goal you like but the basic KLOP game aims for a score of exactly 50. If you toss over multiple pegs you add the number of pegs to make up your score but if you toss over 1 single peg the number on the peg marks your score, all scores are noted in the scoring book. Each throw changes the location of the pegs so every round you have to recalculate how many more points you need, then locate and knock over the peg(s) that can give you the points you’re after.
Adult players will love the strategic side of this game, having to earn an exact number of point is not as easy as it sounds and requires a bit of thinking ahead. If you love a game that gets those radars turning KLOP is just what you need! Younger players, even if they are too little to add up, will love a good throw of the chuck and every peg down is a step closer to the finish, you can just simplify the game by crowning the first person to reach 50 or more the winner.
