Kubb (pronounced koob) is a very old game played by early Scandinavian Vikings. Since I DO have Swedish blood in my veins, this game "speaks" to me and my family.
"The game is played on a level field or open area defined by the four (4) Corner Pins most commonly on a sandy beach or a level lawn (on ice or snow is an option)." (Old Time Games)
"The ten (10) Kubb (Chopping Blocks) are placed on end, five (5) on each team’s base line." (Old Time Games)
"The objective is for players standing at their base line to topple all five (5) of the opposing team’s Kubbar with an underhanded toss of the six (6) Kastpinnar (Casting Pins) and to then topple the Kung (King) which is placed in the center of the playing field." (Old Time Games)
This is a VERY fun family game anyone can play. With enough practice you just may be able to master Abby's throwing technique.
Thanks Matt and Pamela for the introduction!
