    @2:31 Dog ignores sticks being thrown about the yard. Hummmn?

  3. Jay Rex Solis on December 10, 2019 at 11:13 pm

    You’re NOT allowed to stack the field-Kubbs on top of each other.

    You definitely do not remove the field kubbs from the game. They get tossed back from the base line.

    Hi, Dad Done Right!

    I really enjoyed your tutorial! Kubb is a wonderful family game that is a blast! Did you know that there are regional, national, and world tournaments?! There is a thriving Kubb community throughout the US and Europe! However, if you want to play in these tournaments, your rule list is a little off. Home rules are absolutely fun and can make the experience right for you, but you may run into a shock if you ever want to compete in a tournament. I have a link to the official US Kubb rules below! Keep kubbing!

    which diameter for the BATTON?

  9. Marc Pipistrello on December 10, 2019 at 11:38 pm

    Edit: I watched the rest. It’s like a bocce/bowling/every lawn game EVER hybrid. This is INSANE! I just bought a set based on simply WATCHING people play. I jumped here to learn how to play. Nice job!

    What is your favorite Lawn Game? Have you tried Kubb?

  11. George A. on December 10, 2019 at 11:42 pm

    You get two throws at f the Kubb goes out of bounds before the other team places it, not one. Also to expedite the game, you can take the kubbs out of play after the second time they are knocked down . In other words when they are knocked down after becoming field kubbs.

    Legend has it was played using bones.. and is older than viking..
    The name Kubb however is derived from swedish (same in Norwegian) Kubbe.. meaning short log, usually refering to cut firewood..

  14. Marcus Aurelius on December 11, 2019 at 12:02 am

    You forgot the Swedish rule of having to knocking over the king by throwing from an inverted stance through/in between the legs.

  15. LiveLaughLearn Channel on December 11, 2019 at 12:04 am

    Sorry, but this is not the correct way to play.

  16. Nunya Binness on December 11, 2019 at 12:05 am

    I played my first game of Kubb this past July in Laona, Wisconsin.  I really enjoyed it a lot, and my team won.  I must have come off as a "ringer" since most of the scoring came from me.
