Kubb Around the World

  • Answered: The short field --baseline double.When? August 20, 2014 9:23 pm
    We, only play/try that if the player that trys the shot is 100 % sure to hit the kubb in the middel. Or if you have no other choice. In the posted vid. its necessary to hit the baseline kubb, otherwise the other team wins the game. (cheers to the mirakelkubbers) My personal experience is that the double hit field to baseline is the chance to win the game in […]
  • 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. […]
  • Answer selected: When throwing downed base kubbs to the field, if I knock over the King, do I lose? July 26, 2014 12:46 pm
    Wood on wood! You lose if you topple the king with kubbs as well as batons when throwing. If you by accident topple the king with your feet while raising kubbs it raises up again without losing the game, just as kubbs on your own baseline (or an advantage line) toppled with your feet or a baton while throwing batons. […]
  • Commented: Accuracy and efficiency standards July 23, 2014 3:03 pm
    True Dano, Don't get caught by the 'First Blaster' stuff. Always think 'How will I get this down on max 2 batons?' […]
  • Answered: Throw baton forehand or backhand? July 17, 2014 10:34 am
    A lot of good answers here, I also agree that the throw is a continuing process of progress, until you have reached your own most comfortable/accurate grip. For some years now I have been thinking: How do we teach the children a "correct" way of throwing from the beginning? Myself playing Basketball when younger have my inspiration from the penalty […]
  • Commented: Throwing dowels for sale? July 11, 2014 2:27 am
    Some Menards stores carry 1 3/4 inch poplar dowels that are 4 foot long.  Dowels are located in the hardware section, not the wood section.  You'll need to cut to size and sand.   But I 2nd the suggestion to check out JP's Backyard Games.  He also sells them at some of the tournaments he attends. […]
