What is Kubb?

Trying to explain the game of Kubb to someone can leave you a with confused face staring back at you. People most often can’t get past how to pronounce it. Kubb is simply Scandinavian with a cross of Cornhole and Bowling. Kubb is played with two teams taking turns throwing wooden batons. The goal is to knock down the other teams five wooden blocks or “kubbs”. Once all five are knocked down you can knock down the middle piece or the “king”, which is how you win the game.

If you can’t pronounce it don’t worry. Just go with it and play. Or remember it as a 10 year old kid once told me, “Kubb rhymes with ta-tas.”
