Games Galore

Are you ready to get outdoors, socialise, and challenge your friends and family in fun games?

Games Galore is bringing the fun to your local grassy knoll with their selection of outdoor activities.

See the exciting games that you can challenge your friends and family to below:

Finska for 2-8 players

Finska is a Finish backyard tossing game that uses strategy and cunningness. The first team or person to get exactly 50 points is the winner. 

Spikeball for 2-4 players at a time

Most similar to beach volleyball with two players on each team however instead of hitting over the net, you “spike” the ball onto the net in a way that makes it difficult (or better, impossible) for the opposition to return. After the serve bounces off the net, there are no boundaries in this 360 degree exhilarating new sport.

Giant Connect 4 for 2 players (or two teams)

Your classic game but large! In this game, both players take a turn consecutively aiming to get four of your pieces in a row.

Giant Jenja for 2-8 players

You will need to take a Jenga piece from the tower and stack it on top but be careful, you don’t want to topple the tower!

Boulle for 2-4 players (or four teams of two people)

The objective is to throw or roll heavy balls (called boules in France, and bocce in Italy) as close as possible to a small target ball, called the jack.
