Introduction to the best outdoor family game!
How cool that you’re interested in the game Kubb. This site will tell you everything you need to know about the game, the rules and the best sets available.
Often the “oh so fun” outdoor holiday games fall in the category
“Let’s sweat till we’re soaking wet”
while you don’t feel like sweating at all!
Well, let me tell you this, Kubb is NOT one of these games!
So what is Kubb?
Kubb (pronounced as“CUP”) is, as mentioned above, an exception to most “active” outdoor games. While enjoying a cold drink, this block-game can be played on any surface. Just a quick game in the backyard, or several games in the park or beach? It’s all possible, as long as you can lay out a field of 5 by 8 meters.
Don’t have a Kubb game at home but interested to experience the amount of fun of this outdoor game? I came up with an idea to build a Kubb game yourself with a number of ordinary household-items!
Is Kubb Dangerous?
Kubb is extremely dangerous! There is a huge chance to get addicted 😃 The combination of relaxing and competition makes it a perfect holiday game! It is really a game for all ages which makes it the perfect family game!
And no, it is not dangerous. Just make sure you take a few steps back as soon as the opponent throws the throwing stickes towards your Kubbs.
Original Kubb set
There are a lot of Kubb sets out there. The variation in price is big, but there are also serious differences. The size and weight influence the game-play. But to give you some guidance, I tested a number of sets and listed my experiences. In this list I go from a “Kubb game Original” to a “Kubb Game for the kids”.
