What is Kubb?

Kubb is a Swedish throwing game played on a 5m by 8m pitch where the object is to knock over wooden blocks by throwing wooden batons at them. It's played by any number of people from 2 to 6 and can roughly be described as a combination of bowling and pétanque. Kubb is played on grass, sand, gravel, snow or even astroturf. View our gallery for more images of Kubb in action.
