Kubb, also known as "The King's Game" is a fantastic traditional game that has been played in Sweden for at least a century - it is a sort of cross between Skittles and Tennis.
Kubb is a wonderfully unique game of skill that is ideal for garden parties or just fun on a field. Kubb games can be played one against one or in teams of up to 6 players on each side. For alternative court sizes and advice on variants for younger players, please see our Kubb rules.
A simple, inexpensive version of Kubb, the Swedish skittles game, from Tactic games.
Supplied in a cardboard box with a carry handle, so it's easily transportable.
The set is not full-size - each Kubb is about 10cm in length and the King is just over 20cm. It should work fine on a smaller court.
Kubb is the classic Swedish game that can be played as singles or in teams. Knock over skittles and the king, but be careful - if you knock over the King before all the other skittles are down, your opponent wins!
This game is showerproof and can be left outside overnight during summer months. However, it should be brought inside in extreme weather and should be stored in a dry place over winter.
