Kubb (pronounced koob) is one of the funnest outdoor games....ever!  Kubb is an easy to learn, yet strategy-rich, lawn game that has been played for over 1,000 years. It is said to be invented by the Vikings, and has been nicknamed "Viking Chess."

Kubb can be simply described as a combination of bowling and horseshoes. Today's version is said to have originated on the island of Gotland, Sweden.  The ultimate object of the game is to knock over the opposing team's kubbs and the King, before they knock over yours. There is a certain level of strategy that needs to be used by players, and there are many variants and different ways to play the game...it never gets old.  And in this game the king rules all...if a team knocks over the king before the end of the game, you lose.
