What is kubb?

Kubb is an old Nordic game played with wooden game pieces.  Some say the Vikings played Kubb.  The game is played with six batons, 10 Kubbs, one king  and six marking stakes.  Due to the strategy involved, the game’s nickname is “Viking Chess”.  If the Vikings played the game or not, the birth of Kubb seems to be on the island of Gotland, Sweden, which now holds the World Championship.

Eau Claire, Wisconsin has been named the Kubb Capital of North America.  The Midwestern States host many Kubb Tournaments and there are many championship players in our midwest midst.
