Kubb (rhymes with tube ) is a lawn game where the object is to knock over wooden blocks, known as kubbs, by throwing wooden batons at them. Kubb can be described perhaps as a combination of bowling and horseshoes.

Play takes place on a small rectangular playing field, known as a 'pitch'. 'Kubbs' are placed at both ends of the pitch, and the 'king', a larger wooden block, is placed in the middle of the pitch. Some rules vary from country to country and from region to region, but the ultimate object of the game is to knock over the 'kubbs' on the opposing side of the pitch, and then to knock over the 'king', before the opponent does.
