Kubb (Pronounced koob. Rhymes with tube.)
Players toss batons (wood dowels) at their opponent’s kubbs (wooden blocks) trying to knock them down. Game ends when all an opponent’s kubbs are knocked down and you have knocked down the king (taller wooden block).
A lawn game said to have originated from the Vikings (Nordic not Minnesota).
Some describe it as a combination of bowling and horseshoes. The games are played on pitches (fields) measuring 5 meters × 8 meters (about 16 feet by 26 feet).
It’s a great game for people of all ages! Kubb is very easy to learn, but hard to master.
