The House

A location on the pitch, square in form, 2 batons wide and 2 batons deep, measured from the centerline pins, in the [[upfield]]. The location is used in practice for [[drilling]] kubbs, and success is determined by having all the kubbs touching the same house after being raised. The term was taken from the game of Curling.

KITE

Current status: KITE v0.3 is in a spreadsheet form to get test data for populating the application's database.  An alpha version is forthcoming.

KITE is an application that is currently being developed for tracking certain aspects of any given kubb game for later analysis. KITE stands for Kubb Interactive Tracking Engine. It will allow a player to track relevant data from a game quickly and easily.
