Kubb

Kubb, also known as "The King's Game" is a fantastic traditional game that has been played in Sweden for at least a century - it is a sort of cross between Skittles and Tennis.

Kubb is a wonderfully unique game of skill that is ideal for garden parties or just fun on a field. Kubb games can be played one against one or in teams of up to 6 players on each side. For alternative court sizes and advice on variants for younger players, please see our Kubb rules.

  • Inexpensive Kubb game
  • Supplied in a cardboard box with carry handle
  • From Tactic games

A simple, inexpensive version of Kubb, the Swedish skittles game, from Tactic games.

Supplied in a cardboard box with a carry handle, so it's easily transportable.

The set is not full-size - each Kubb is about 10cm in length and the King is just over 20cm. It should work fine on a smaller court.

Kubb is the classic Swedish game that can be played as singles or in teams. Knock over skittles and the king, but be careful - if you knock over the King before all the other skittles are down, your opponent wins!

This game is showerproof and can be left outside overnight during summer months. However, it should be brought inside in extreme weather and should be stored in a dry place over winter.

  • Birchwood Kubb game - made in Sweden
  • Inexpensive set that doesn't compromise on quality
  • Made from solid wood from sustainable sources
  • Great outdoor fun for all the family

Kubb, also known as 'The King's Game' is a classic Swedish traditional game - great fun for children and adults, it's a cross between Skittles and badminton!

These quality Kubb games are imported from Sweden. Each set consists of 12 throwing sticks, 10 Kubbs, 1 King and rules. Kubbs are 15cm long, King 30 x 7.5cm; sticks are 30 x 4cm.

The Birchwood Kubb game is designed to be inexpensive but should still last well and be lots of fun.

The sticks and skittles are made from solid wood from sustainable plantations. Be aware that sets made from softer wood such as Pine will not last.

Please note that some of the Kubb sticks and skittles may have significant amounts of wood filler visible on them where a hole or flaw in the wood has been repaired. Rubberwood suffers from this less than Birchwood. Kubb is a game where the wood soon gets battered and dented so for most people this isn't an issue but if you need perfect looking timber, this product may not suit you.

This game is for play indoors and outdoors but it is not weatherproof or showerproof (warranty may be void if game is exposed to damp or rain).

Kubb History


It is often claimed Kubb dates to the time of the Vikings and survived on Gotland, but there is no evidence for this although there is anecdotal evidence of Kubb being played in various places in Sweden in the early 20th century. The Föreningen Gutnisk Idrott (The Society of Gotland Games), formed in 1912, does not list Kubb as one of the traditional games from Gotland.

The game does show some similarity to other types of bowls and skittling games, and may share a common medieval source with them.

Another possibility for the origin of Kubb is from the old English school at Harrow. During the 1860s, Harrow schoolboys were playing a game called 'Kabul' (also recorded as 'Kabbul'), in which junior boys or minor miscreants would stand in position in the gymnasium, and opposing teams of prefects would kick three footballs at them.

Since 1995 there has been a Kubb World Championship held on Gotland every year.
