Kubb (Block Game) is a very old game whose origin is uncertain though thought to be French. Whether its beginning was in France or it was the inventive imagination of some young Scandinavian children a millennium ago, we may never know. Legend has is that it was widely played over 1,000 years ago by the early Scandinavian Vikings and has been played on the Island of Gotland and in the southern part of Sweden throughout the centuries where it has persisted to this day.
Because of its name "Kubbspel" which means throwing block game, one can easily imagine how in the Viking years it was perhaps a favorite pastime of the young Scandinavian children sent to collect firewood. The rules are simple and open to wide interpretation or variation depending only on the skills, ages, and imaginations of the participants.
While the game KUBB is centuries old, the game we produce is called: KUBB - The Viking Game
