How to Play Kubb
The most popular variation of Kubb has the opposing team collecting their toppled Kubbs, which now become Field Kubbs. Once all six Sticks have been tossed, the opposing team tosses any of their toppled Kubbs past the King and into the opposing team’s playing field.
All Kubbs that are knocked down are then thrown onto the other team’s half of the court, and stood on end. These newly thrown Kubbs are called "Field Kubbs". Deciding where in the opponent’s half of the court to throw the Field Kubbs is a very important part of the strategy. Play then changes hands. The throwing team must first knock down any standing Field Kubbs. These knocked down Field Kubbs are then removed from the game.
** Field Kubbs that right themselves due to the momentum of the impact are considered down. If either team leaves Field Kubbs standing, the Kubb closest to the King now represents that side’s baseline, and throwers may step up to that line to throw at their opponent’s kubbs. This rule applies to Field and Baseline Kubbs only; fallen Kubbs are thrown from the original baseline, as are attempts to knock over the King.
When a team has successfully toppled all of the Kubbs, but has not toppled the King (Kung), the opposing team may attack the King to win the game.
** When playing with this variation, a team with only one Throwing Stick and one Kubb standing may want to forfeit the toss rather than risk toppling the last Kubb, which would leave the King open to the opponent’s attack.
