How To Play Kubb



For a more "In Depth" version of the rules, please read the below document, which is the set of rules used at the National Tournament held in Eau Claire, Wisconsin each summer.


For our league, we'll adhere to most of the rules in the National Championship rulebook, but there will be some differences when it comes to "Sudden Death" situations, as well as penalty situations.  This will be far more laid back, and as long as penalties are isolated incidents, we will not be as harsh as the rules state.

Scoring in our league will work as follows:
  • Each week, 12 points will be available for a team to earn (3 points per game won, 3 points for taking a majority, or 2/3 games)
  • Since we are on a time restraint, it is possible that a team will not be able to complete all (or any) of their games, as games run the risk of taking a decent amount of time to finish.
  • Any games that end when the time limit is up will be decided by baseline Kubbs.  The team with the greater amount of baseline Kubbs still standing is the winner.

  • The below scenarios explain scoring possibilities in greater detail:
    • Team A wins 3 games.  Team A scores 12 points, Team B scores 0.
    • Team A wins 2 games, Team B wins 1.  Team A scores 9 Points, Team B Scores 3
    • Team A wins 1 game , Team B wins 1, third game is not completed and each team has the same amount of Kubbs on the baseline (Team A scores 6, Team B scores 6)
    • Team A wins 1 game, Team B wins 1, third game is not completed, but Team A has 4 Baseline Kubbs, while Team B has 3.  Team A scores 9, Team B scores 3.
    • Team A wins 1 game, game two is not completed, but each team has equal Baseline Kubbs.  Team A scores 9 (3 for game 1, 1.5 for Game 2, 1.5 for Game 3, 3 for majority wins), and Team B scores 3.
    • Team A wins 1 game, game two is not completed, but Team A has more Baseline Kubbs.  Team A scores 10.5, Team B scores 1.5.
    • Game 1 is not completed, and each team has equal baseline Kubbs.  Team A and Team B both score 6 points.
    • Game 1 is not completed, but Team A has more Baseline Kubbs standing.  Team A takes all 13 points
