I thought it would be interesting to collect some comments and thoughts from Kubb-addicts on the 2012 US Nationals. There was a comment form that I hope everyone filled out at the event but that was more focused on the event and benefits to the city of Eau Claire.
What comments did you have about game play in the tournament?
Suggestion: please us the up and down vote features to agree/disagree, and add in your replies to others comments as well.
Have the final championship match for 1st and 2nd place be best of 5 games instead of best of 3.
I realize this could result in a longer match, but now with the 2 day format I think this could work out really well.
Put the game for 3rd/4th in between the semifinals and the final match. So, after the semifinals are over there is only a single pitch. First match would be for 3rd/4th followed by match for 1st/2nd.
I don't think anyone watched the 3rd/4th game this year and that had to be some great Kubb being played there.
Introduce a 1 minute time limit for teams to stand up Kubbs. In general I think this would be nice for all games, but in the quarterfinals on there it could be enforced by a neutral party (referee). This would help insure that matches move along quickly and as spectators build that there is regular gameplay going.
