DIY Outdoor Scatter/Molkky Modified

Let the yard games begin! Outdoor Scatter or Molkky is a fun and strategic group game perfect for playing in the yard, park or beach. Rack up the 12 skittles and toss the baton to knock them over. Score exactly 50 points, You Win!


Steps


Cut List

Game
12 – 2” round dowel x 6” long with 45 deg miter cut on one end
1 – 2” round dowel x 9” long

Box
2 – 1” x 4” x 10” pine board
2 – 1” x 4” x 8 ½” pine board
2 – 1” x 4” x 7” pine board

Note: It is difficult to find the exact diameter of wood for the official game size, but even the modified version will keep you entertained for hours. I used readily available 2” dowels for this project, but a $4 landscaping timber would be a cheap substitute.

Official size: wood diameter 5.5 cm (2.17 inch), baton length 22.5 cm (8.86 inch), skittle length 15 cm (5.91 inch)

Cut the round dowels into the 12 skittles (6” pieces with 45 deg tops) and 1 baton (9” piece). Cut the pieces for the storage box from a 1x4. Lightly sand any rough edges on the dowels and box pieces.

On the 6” pieces, paint numbers (1-12) on the diagonal cut area. (A stencil may be helpful for this step.)

Here is a skittle placement guide. It can also be used for a stencil/template to paint the numbers on the skittles. Enjoy the game!
