There are several options, but I am wondering someone has a strong recommendation that's worked for them.  Or if you know what you should not try because of security hassles or handling damages.

A) Pack alone in a suitcase for checked baggage

B) Pack with clothing in a suitcase for checked baggage

C) Pack in cardboard box for checked baggage

D) Pack in carry-on bag

I've wanted to travel on a plane with kubb but have never actually tried it since it takes up so much space and is so heavy. Alternative? Ship a kubb set to your destination and leave it as a gift. :-)

For a recent trip to Seattle, I packed all pieces of the kubb set, ikea bag, instructions, and quick pitch into a size "c" cardboard box left over from a purchase from  [8.5" x 10.5" x 14"]  The total weight was 15 pounds.  I think this box would be the perfect size for shipping.

I placed that box into the largest roller suite case we own.  With clothes for the trip, the total was about 50 lbs.  On the flight out of MSP, no surcharge.  On the flight home, it was tagged as being over weight, but no surcharge.

Because of the weight being close to 50 lbs, I might try another method for the next flight we take.
