This game is called kubb for a reason. The pieces are kubbs not knights. Can we change that in the glossary?

I know some people use that term (and that is fine), but I also know that if we want this thing to be pretty official and not confuse new people, we should try to make everything consistent in the glossary. I would also like to see "first" taken out of "first blaster". Speaking of "blasting", sorry for my first comments in this Planet Kubb on being to make changes.

I also filtered "knight" out of a couple of questions and comments on this site. Knight free!

Garrick takes all the blame for any Knight references! :-)

Re: Knight

I think there was only one reference to that, in the slang entry for Weaving the Basket. I just edited that entry and changed it to Kubb.

Keeping terms clear is also why the Planet Kubb Wiki seperated the official Glossary from the Slang entries. They are not mingled together anymore.

A search for "knight" now yields no results on the wiki.

And Eric, feel free to register on the Wiki and you can edit at will and correct anything or add new stuff. Just register, and then confirm your email address and you'll be set.

Re: First Blaster

I'm fine changing the name. The slang entry came from Dobbie in Iowa. But right now the definition specifically states first. I'm going to change it to the player attempting to blast multiple Kubbs and change name.

Done, now Blaster! :-)

Awesome. Thanks a lot. Just a little FYI, knight is still in the "blaster" definition. However, I want to say you have done a GREAT JOB with this. Thanks for all your hardwork.

Oh jhez — it turns out searching for "knight" won't find "knights"! Fixed the three instances of "knights" and also added wikilinks while I was at it.

Clean!

This is a vote for me ripping out the standards search in the wiki and replacing it with something that actually does stemming, and, well searches better.

And just to make sure there was no more "Knight" getting thrown around, I renamed the user level on this site from "Kubb Knight" (not implying a game piece, more a reference to an actual knight) to "Ironkubb".

Ironkubb came from the Planet Kubb Team Name Generator. :-)

Well, who is calling it batons? The term is Casting Pins (Kastpinnar). Even the term “club” is far better than “baton”.

My error, I was going by the translation others have made on the web without checking it out. The term is Throw Sticks (Kastpinnar). Kast translates to throw, pinnar translates to sticks. Pinne / pinnar does not translate to “pin/s” and kast does not translate to “cast”. I still think “club” sounds better than ‘baton” in terms of using another English word for stick.

My group always refers to them as "sticks" or "batons".  I don't see myself ever referring to them as a club.
