This came up in the semi-finals last year in Rockford. After it stops moving wait a 'reasonable amount of time' before the next toss. If it hasn't fallen then consider it 'up' and play on. If it subsequently falls then treat it like any other 'up' kubb that falls over due to wind or eneven ground and stand it back up (as close as possible to its original position and orientation).

Chris, I enjoyed the blogs you and Dobbie wrote on defensive raising of the kubbs. How about some theory and strategy tips for attacking the pile, blasting and such. Thanks

Perhaps after Nationals. We have an "open source" mentality on kubb strategy in August. Bwahahaha.

Good point. After watching the Rockford videos I can see that the competition is getting fierce!
