Kubb is an old Nordic lawn game, which is rumored to have its roots with the Vikings! The game is simple, yet capable of being played with strategy by people of all ages.
Kubb United is partnering with Rockford Area Convention & Visitors Bureau, Swedish Historical Society of Rockford and Gigi's Playhouse to present the 2018 Screw City Kubb Klassic. Concessions are provided by Swedish Soul Fusion. All proceeds are shared with Gigi's Playhouse.
We are going to paint every pitch (weather permitting) and use the Kubb United Rules for Open Play with the exception of two player only teams. There will be 8 qualifying rounds of single games each having a 25 minute time limit. After that the top 8 teams will be seeded in the Championship Bracket, the next 16 teams (9-24) will be seeded in the Consolation A Bracket and all remaining teams will be in the Consolation B Bracket.
