Kubb is the game that started this whole thing called Garness Games. My dad had a set and we realized just how fun it was to play. Not only was it easy enough for anyone to play (even the grandmas) but EVERYONE COULD PLAY AT THE SAME TIME.

Up to 12 people can play at a time so you can get the entire party playing at once. It really is a great game to bring everyone together around a common task…something that is becoming more and more rare these days.

We offer many styles and colors of Kubb. You can either pick one we have already made or request your own colors. We love to experiment and try new shapes and color combinations. We’re still searching for the “perfect” set (I don’t think we’ll ever figure out what that is)!

Every set we make comes with its own high-quality canvas bag for easy storage and transportation.

What is Kubb?

Legend has it that the game of Kubb originated with the Vikings. The legend says that after conquering a village they would set this game up using the skulls and femurs of their unfortunate enemies.

This is an awesome and gruesome tale but the more likely explanation is that the Scandinavian people created this game using the leftover from chopping wood. The word Kubb literally means “block of wood” in Norwegian.

Kubb can seem a bit confusing at first. However, it’s not as complicated as it looks and you’ll catch on quick! It takes one game to learn the rules and by the second game you’ll be having a great time knocking down those skulls.

We’ve found that showing someone how to play is way more effective than trying to explain the rules or reading the rules. For that reason, we’re not going to write the rules down here but refer you to this excellent video from Kubb United:

Here’s another great video from the U.S. National Kubb Championship website. And here’s the Official Rule-Book.
