Welcome to Wisconsin Kubb. Kubb is an old Nordic game, which was born in Sweden. Recreational and competitive kubb is now played around the world. Our home kubb pitch is in Eau Claire, WI, officially the Kubb Capital of North America. Eau Claire is home to the U.S. National Kubb Championship. This website is home to Kubbnation Magazine, the Dallas, WI Oktoberfest Kubb Tournament, our blog, and more.
Kubb comes from a land where summer nights are mystical and merge with the mornings, and cloudless winter days, with the sun low in the horizon, are blinding, bitter, and agonizingly short. Many wonder about the origins of this Nordic game, also known as Viking Chess. Where were the first wood batons thrown at a kubb? Were the Vikings the first to play kubb? The answers to those questions are unknown. However, it is easy to imagine the first games of kubb being played in a wind-swept grassy area of Gotland in sight of the raw and relentless Baltic Sea. Kubb, like many of our ancestors, has traveled thousands of miles from a distant and magical land, crossed an ocean, and now resides in Wisconsin and beyond.
In 2007, Eau Claire hosted the first promoted and official tournament in the U.S. Since then, kubb has grown significantly. It is now a connected kubb community that promotes the game in numerous ways in their local communities and beyond. In 2014, there are 24 tournaments in the U.S., 13 of which are in Wisconsin. Of the other 11 U.S. tournaments, only two are outside of a two hour drive from Wisconsin.
