Gather the Materials

A traditional Kubb set consists of 10 wooden blocks (called kubbs), 6 batons (or throwing sticks), 1 King block, and 4 corner stakes. You can find these sets online or make your own using materials like wood, PVC pipe, dowels, or pool noodles. Make sure that all the wood pieces have been sanded and painted for a smooth finish.

Set Up Your Field of Play

The playing field should be a rectangle shaped area at least 16 feet wide and 25-30 feet long. Use the corner stakes to mark each end of the court. Next, place the King block in the center of the court. The 10 kubbs should be placed at even intervals along what will become the center line once gameplay has begun.

Now that all pieces have been properly placed on either side of your Kubb court, it’s time for some friendly competition! Be sure to review all rules before beginning play – like any sport there are certain regulations that must be followed in order for everyone to have an enjoyable experience with this classic game. So grab some friends, head outside, and get ready to play Kubb!
