Kubb (pronounced Koob) is a traditional outdoor game with Nordic roots. Some believe the game of kubb has been played in Sweden since the time of the Vikings and thus call it, “Viking Chess.” Today, the game of kubb is widely enjoyed throughout Europe and the United States of America. Players toss wooden batons under-handed and vertically, end-over-end in order to knock down the opponent’s king and wooden blocks (or kubbs). This beautiful version is made of solid hardwood and is sure to last through years of outdoor play. Comes with a handy carrying bag making it ideal for taking it with you wherever people gather, on grass, sand, concrete, or ice. Makes a great housewarming and Father’s Day gift. Also a wonderful gift for a family or wedding couple or anyone that enjoys outdoor sporting events and quality time with friends.
