From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Kubb is an outdoor game where the object is to knock over wooden blocks by throwing wooden sticks at them. The word "Kubb" [pron. koob] means "wooden block" in the Gotland dialect of Swedish.
Kubb can be quickly described as a combination of bowling, horseshoes, and chess.
Rules vary from country to country and region to region, but the ultimate object of the game is to knock the king over before your opponent does. This, combined with the fact that there is a surprising level of strategy that can be used by players, has led some players and kubb fans to nickname the game "Viking Chess."
Games can last for hours, and kubb can enjoyed on a variety of surfaces, from sand to concrete.
