Kubb [pron. Koob] by Planet Finska
This superb throwing game (originating from Sweden) can be played by individuals or as teams of 2 to 6 players. It is great for the beach, the backyard, on the grass or on gravel, in parks and gardens; even in the snow.
Also known as 'Viking chess,' Kubb is a game of strategy and skill, with a steady arm being the best weapon! Played on an 8m by 4m pitch, Kubb is an enthralling and captivating game, where the object is to knock over the King before your opponent does by throwing wooden batons at it.
Kubb can be quickly described as a combination of bowling, horseshoes, and chess.
