  • Although I do wonder why they found it necessary to change things around, since the game is perfect as it is. Do you know why these changes were made? It's a bit odd to an American like myself. I do realize that the Finns are a unique people in many ways. It would be interesting to know why. Did they change the world's most perfect game just to give it their own individuality like the Finns do with so many other things?

  • I did not know about this . Thank you for the information. I am of Finnish blood but I was born in the USA. I appreciate that the Finnish people play the best game in the world. My Grandfather, Waino Saari, from Vassa, Finland never told me about this, because he immigrated before this game was introduced in 1920.
