The History of Kubb:
Kubb is a lawn game where the object is to knock over wooden blocks by throwing wooden batons at them. Kubb can be somewhat described as a combination of bowling and horseshoes. Today's version originated on the island of Gotland, Sweden. In English, the game is often pronounced as "koob", which rhymes with "tube".
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, and then knock the "king" over, before the opponent does. This combined with the fact that there is a certain level of strategy that can be used by players, has led some players and kubb fans to nickname the game "Viking Chess." 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. Kubb is a great game for people of all ages.
Although it is often claimed that the game dates back to the Viking Age and has survived on Gotland, there doesn't appear to be any firm evidence of this. The Föreningen Gutnisk Idrott ("Society of Gotland Games"), formed in 1912, does not list kubb as one of the traditional games from Gotland. On Swedish island of Gotland there are many stories of kubb being played in the early 20th century.
The game in its modern conception became popular in the 1990s when commercial kubb sets were first manufactured. The key feature of the game (opposing teams throwing) is shared by the games kyykkä and bunnock, both of which come from Karelia or neighbouring areas. The game has now gained international interest, and an annual World Championship has been held since 1995 on Gotland. Large kubb tournaments are now located throughout Europe and the U.S. Belgium alone had over 50 tournaments in 2012.
On December 13th, 2011, Eau Claire, WI became The Kubb Capital of North America. The city has hosted the U.S. National Kubb Championship since 2007, is home to Kubbnation Magazine, has various kubb clubs, and kubb leagues exist. In addition, kubb sets are in the local schools, with some schools having kubb units in physical education class. There are also kubb clubs at some schools, including Eau Claire Memorial HS.
