Kubb Around the World

  • Answered: Is it considered a throw if a player is flipping a baton around and drops it. September 22, 2014 8:17 am
    WC-rules in Rone states it is, if half or more of the baton lies in front of the throwers baseline. It was ruled in a final some years ago. /S […]

  • Answered: Trending the World Championships in Rone 2014 September 9, 2014 11:28 am
    Don't mind the next step so much. The trends will probably have much higher impact on (your) anybodys game at low to high level play. Next step is for top level competition if you want to step up part of your game […]
  • Commented: When throwing downed base kubbs to the field, if I knock over the King, do I lose? August 22, 2014 2:11 pm
    In the detailed VM rules it's actually "wood-on-wood" when it comes to the king being toppled by mistake (with a baton or a kubb). So, if you topple him with your feet by mistake when raising kubbs it's ok, raise the king and keep on playing. […]

  • Answered: Are there any Kubb-loving iOS developers out there? August 13, 2014 1:28 pm
    I think it would be really cool if we could all get together on the design aspect of it.  I had some issues with the Android app and am currently trying to fix it up a bit.  I'd love to see what you have for the design ideas jonesydesign.  Perhaps we can set up something forum like to exchange ideas on the features, look/feel and things like that? […]
  • Answered: Efficiency metrics on 2 throws August 5, 2014 11:28 am
    Just to expand a bit on Garrick's answer. When we were initially discussing Efficiency as a metric there was a lot of debate between using the first throw only or the first and second throws. Technically, there is nothing saying you could do Efficiency ratings for the 3rd, 4th, 5th or even 6th baton frankly. However, Efficiency on 6th baton becomes a ve […]
  • Answered: Scoresheets' notation implementation (inkasting technique) August 5, 2014 11:12 am
    One of the very very early versions of the scoresheet had something like that. Feel free to start adding that sort of description in the comments section. When you feel like you've got something that works really well - send it over and we'll test it out. […]
  • Answered: Winning matches with the rule of Best of 5 games August 1, 2014 11:28 am
    I’m not aware of any tournaments that do this. I think it would be a pretty interesting change for the big tournaments. Notably, the final match of the US Championship would be worthy of a Best of 5 in my opinion. […]
