Kubb on the National Mall!

Kubb, the Game of Vikings!

Have you ever thought to yourself "Rargh, I'm a Viking!"? I know I have! And what better way to celebrate your Viking heritage than by throwing sticks at things?

Come join us in a game of Kubb, lovingly called "Viking Chess". It's a game of strategy, dexterity, skill, and it also happens to look hilarious. If you're unfamiliar with the rules, have no fear because everybody is! It's an easy game to learn, difficult to master, and highly addictive.

If anybody happens to have a Kubb set on them, please bring it (also leave a comment in the comment section). I have two sets (enough to accommodate 24 people), but the more sets means less people on a team, which means more stick throwing for everybody!

    I don't know that I will be good at the strategy, dexterity or skill part...but I can definitely rock the looking hilarious! I'm down!

    I'd love to, this sounds awesome, but I have a schedule conflict already. Hope there's another chance to play kubb in the future!
