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”. Sons of Norway- Mandt Lodge will have hot foods available during the Stoughton Kubb Invitational lunch break. Food will be ready by 11:45 am and will stay out through the lunch break. We will have pizza and case wieners. We appreciate your support of the tournament and hope that we have a fun day of playing, socializing and some friendly competition!
