  • Kubb Sets

    Kubb is a lawn game where the objective is to knock over wooden blocks by throwing wooden batons  at them. Kubb can be described as a combination of bowling and horseshoes. Play takes place on a small rectangular playing field, known as a “pitch”. “Kubbs” are placed at both ends of the pitch, and the “king”, a larger wooden block, is placed in the middle of the pitch. Some rules vary from country to country and from region to region, but the ultimate objective of the game is to knock over the “kubbs” on the opposing side of the pitch, and then to knock over the “king”, before the opponent does. Games can last from five minutes to well over an hour. The game can be played on a variety of surfaces such as grass, sand, concrete, snow, or even ice.

    The alleged Viking origin of the game has led some players and kubb fans to nickname the game “Viking chess
