Author's Note: How Kubb Works

Full disclosure -- I had never in my life heard of kubb until I started researching this article. As someone who loves to play ladderball (but struggles to keep track of the score) I was immediately drawn to the elegance and simplicity (and touch of brutality) that is kubb. So of course I proceeded directly to a store to buy a game set. It does take some finesse and accuracy to throw batons, but after a few games I started to zero in on the kind of wrist flick it takes to zing kubbs. Although I'm very much a kubb novice, I can see just how enthralling this game must be for true devotees.
