You will need: A game set of Kubb (or wooden blocks).
Kubb is a very popular lawn game, especially in Sweden. With the kubb equipment, you can also play other games - like Kubb relay. This game is a very fun outdoor activity that also suits as an event in a pentathlon.
Play it individually or in teams! Challenge your friends, kids, colleagues, and family and see who will be the most successful.
You need to put five kubbs in line with 3 feet between them to play. Then, place the starting point 10 feet from the first kubb in the row. Farthest away in the line, you put the king. Now, you will have six targets in a row.
If you play in two teams, you need to arrange two different lines and put the king farthest away between these two lines.
Here are some versions of the game you can play.
Version 1 - Individually
The player gets six throw-sticks and must, from the starting point, try to knock down the kubbs. Two points are given for every knocked down kubb, and four points are given for the king.
The player who gathers the most points wins.
Version 2 - Individually with Time Limit
This Kubb version aims to knock down both the kubbs and the king in the shortest time. When all the throw-sticks have been thrown, the player must run and collect them. Then, run back and try again until all kubb + the king has fallen.
The player that manages to knock down all six objects in the shortest time wins the game.
Version 3 - Team Relay
Equip each team with one throwing-stick. The first player makes a throw and then runs away to pick it up and hand it over to the next team member in line. The team that first knocks down all the six kubbs + the king wins.
Version 4 - Move Forward
In this version, the player must start by knocking down the kubb placed closest in line. Then, when successful, the player can move forward to this spot and make the next throw from there.
Feel free to put the kubbs with varying distances between each other in this version. You can even arrange it like a route through your garden. But, of course, you set the king last.
Choose if you want to have a limited number of throw-sticks or a time limit.
