Most memorable game was 5 years ago. While still in kubb infancy I traveled to Breckenridge, CO for a cousin's graduation party. My whole family was there along with some great family friends. We were at a resort and I brought Kubb with. Not the kubb we know know, but 4x4 blocks that were about 6'' tall and some closet rod that were about 1'' diameter and a foot long. While at the resort we looked for a place to play the new game. I was the only one in my family that had played it at this point and that was only with my wife in the backyard.
Moutains in CO don't really leave much room. We found a spot in the woods that was open enough (no trees or stumps), but was at about a 20 degree slope. We played. My brothers were kind of hooked. Then we found the pool. Swimming and some chicken fighting ensued, but I noticed green grass that was flat. One pitch fit perfectly in by the pool. When I say perfectly I mean one corner you couldn't throw from because it was next to an iron fence and the other baseline was on the edge of a flower bed.
We played stacking rules. 8 Kubbs high I believe is the highest we got. None of this sideways stuff either. After that weekend I made 4 sets for my family members. That was it. I was hooked on this game. There was so much trash talk, especially later on, and friendly bantor that even Grandma was giving my brother grief for missing.
When we showed up at Nationals 3 years ago and saw the size of the batons and how small the kubbs were.....the game was almost easier...more fun. Then someone learned how to drill...and made this whole thing more challenging.
