    was expecting to find your answer here:   http://desmoineskubb.com/tournaments.php Looks like it needs an update. […]
  • Commented: Feet position when tossing the baton April 3, 2015 6:38 pm
    Actually, I am certain it is possible if you lay one foot on the line to "hover" the other out of bounds, you simply cannot step out bounds, but in the air should be acceptable […]
  • Answered: Inkasting Kubbs hitting raised kubbs March 9, 2015 2:18 pm
    The knocked down kubb is raised in its new position. This is a perfectly legal and possibly a good strategy. It's used to "rescue" a bad toss from a previous round and might be a good technique to get a better grouping out of a poor previous toss. If it gets knocked out of bounds, it is re-tossed as a first-time throw (you get 2 throws just li […]
  • Commented: Is it worth buying a set (to use with children) that has a "finish"? March 9, 2015 2:08 pm
    Also, JP makes very good sets. […]
  • Answered: Can you still buy a set for $45? March 8, 2015 2:48 am
    I make sets ...and if you look around I get sets to the majority of the tournaments in the Midwest I make my $45 sets to the same specs as tournament sets (King is slightly smaller--similar to the king at Nationals in Eau Claire, WI AND the batons are the same as tournament sets. Most cheaper sets have pine dowels or smaller diameter dowels. Shoot me an emai […]
  • Commented: Alternate baton openers - explain the 2-4-6 version February 14, 2015 8:44 pm
    "If a team has more than three players, the team can distribute the batons to four different players, but are not required." - That would be an disadvantage for the team with 3 players, you allways have do give a batton to each player of your team 4/2 4/3, 4/4, 4/5, 4/6 ... other wise you go with 3 up 70+% on the 8 m line and 2 guys on fire on 4 m […]

  • Commented: Any advice for starting a new tournament? January 31, 2015 3:08 am
    Write a letter that quickly explains Kubb, how many people you expect will attend your tournament, and what you will do with the money.  High light the range of ages and distances people may travel to play.  I think those are distinct advantages for kubb tournaments.  Around our area, most tournaments are for softball and cornhole.  Sponsors might be impress […]
  • Commented: How much does size matter? January 25, 2015 4:24 pm
    I concur w/ thingles. The shape and weight of the pieces changes the game - for it changes what throws are easier and which are more difficult. For fun, casual backyard games I play on the Bex set which is so different from my competitive set from JP's Backyard Games that my usual techniques don't apply thereby handicapping my competitive abilities […]
  • Answered: Can I knock down a Field Kubb and the King with one shot for the win? January 16, 2015 4:24 pm
    Certainly an interesting rule to discuss. I should clear up our stance since we're the next tournament. Players won't be allowed to do this at the 2015 Loppet Kubb Tournament. You'll need a separate baton at the baseline for the king shot. […]
