You are probably scratching your head after my last post wondering "What in the world is Kubb?" or "How do I play?" I cannot describe it very well--I tried to explain to Tevis and finally said, "Wait until my video comes out." Here it is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n78be1iBsGY&feature=plcp
It may not be enough to help you understand the rules. For this I refer you to this funny video:
My friend Susie in Sweden says it is played frequently at BBQs and parties. In the U.S. it is mainly played by hipsters (direct quote from Kate Bickford). There is a national championship in Wisconsin (something to aspire to).
It is the perfect game for Independence Day parties like the one I am missing in McKinleyville today. Happy Independence Day everyone. Enjoy your freedom to whack the Kubb King without being arrested.
