The birch Kubb game is well known not only in Sweden but through out Europe, played for over 1000 years!
The game Kubb (pronounced koob) is addictive, uses skill and strategy and is also known as The Viking Chess Game.
Play takes place on a small rectangular playing field, known as a 'pitch'. 'Kubbs' are placed at both ends of the pitch, and the 'king', a larger wooden block, is placed in the middle of the pitch. Some rules vary from country to country and from region to region, but the ultimate object of the game is to knock over the 'kubbs' on the opposing side of the pitch, and then to knock over the 'king', before the opponent does. Games can last from five minutes to well over an hour. The game can be played on a variety of surfaces such as grass, sand, concrete, snow, or even ice. The alleged Viking origin of the game has led some players and kubb fans to nickname the game “Viking Chess”.
This Kubb game set will bring great joys to your family or friends who play it together.
