With us in 2015

About 10 years ago I was introduced to the old Viking game KUBB. Since then, I have been making KUBB sets and playing the game with friends and family in different settings . We have played on the beach, along a riverbed, on ice, on snow and on grass. The game was created by the Vikings on an Island Gotland in Sweden. They were killing time before they were hitting the sea. The game can be played by 2-12 people at one time - old or young, male or female. The Rules: Come to see at ScanFest Sunday, September 6th, 2015.
