Kubb is a great outdoor game for the whole family that dates back to Viking times. If you like games that provide an opportunity to stage the greatest of all comebacks when you are nearly down and out, you will love Kubb!
Teams take turns to attack the soldiers (wooden blocks called Kubbs) on their opponent's side of the battlefield by throwing batons in an attempt to knock as many down as they can. Before the King block can be 'captured', all Kubbs on your opponent's side must first be knocked down.
The game is exciting, with momentum swinging back and forward as the game progresses. The to and fro of the game occurs because any Kubbs knocked down by your opponent on their previous turn must be thrown back onto the other side of the battlefield before commencing your next attack.
This makes your initial task of clearing the other side of the battlefield more difficult, but is the essential feature of the game that makes it so exciting.
