Kubb is a very old game. “Throwing logs” is quite popular in Sweden now, particularly on the island Gotland. Kubb is a “partygame” which is played outdoors with 2-12 participants. Everyone can participate, young as old.
The game is played on a field which is 5×8 meters, the size can be less or more depending on the skills of the players. The field should be fairly smooth and flat, usually we play on grass but gravel, sand or snow could also do.
The game pieces are made of pine and one set consists of the following parts:
- 1 KING approx. 9×9 cm square and 30 cm´s height.
- 10 KUBBS approx. 7×7 cm square and 15 cm´s height.
- 6 THROWING BATONS, round 44 mm in diameter and 30 cm´s in length.
- 4 CORNER STICKS and 2 MIDDLE STICKS 2x2x30 cm are also useful to have.
