I got a couple of questions about playing kubb with time limits:

1st:  When a game came to an end due to time limits, does the team that is tossing the batons immediately stop tossing them or does the game stop at the end of the team's tossing phase?

2nd: In case the team leading the game deliberately slow down the game, which kind of penalty can it be subject to ?

In a reduced opening (like a 2-4-6) we just play through the end of the current team's turn. If they have thrown a field kubb before the time is up, they can finish.

With regard to slow play, it is a judgment call on the part of the head official. If they determine that a team is behaving unsportingly and trying to abuse the system then they can award the game to the other team.
