What about if a Kubb is toppled and then it gets back to a standing position? Is it considered hit or not?

Toppled is toppled.

My preference is always to have the toppled-but-restanding ones laid down.

Agree with Garrick on having the toppled-but-restanding Kubb then laid down. A point of etiquette I would highlight is that in my opinion the defending team should lay the toppled Kubb down for you. If they don't, just ask them.

I would leave the toppled kubb as it rests (with a token) unless both teams agree that laying it down would not affect subsequent batons.

U.S. National rules say:

"It is possible for a toppled kubb to be knocked over, then through the course of motion, to come to rest standing on one end. In this case, the kubb is still considered toppled, and is customary to put a token on the toppled kubb." (U.S. National Kubb Championship® Rules V3.1, Section II.B.10)

I'm curious about the customary tokening.... Has anyone done that? What would that look like, exactly?

Typically a small amount of pulled grass or a twig - whatever is on hand.
