Kubb (which rhymes with “tube”) also known as “Viking Chess”, is a Scandinavian game rumored to have been started over a 1,000 years ago by the Vikings who used the skull and femur bones of their enemies as game pieces. The more probable explanation is that the game of Kubb began using scraps of firewood since the word “kubb” is derived from the Swedish word träkubbe which literally means “block of wood”.
