Vking Game

$95.00 $ 49.99

The King and I

Claim the crown with this centuries-old Swedish lawn game. Dating back to the Vikings, its outdoor rules are meant for year-long family fun on grass, sand, snow or anywhere your competitive streak takes you! The rules are simple, but VKing requires skill, strategy and a stroke of luck to win.

Game Plan
Divide into two teams. Find a flat, open space to setup rectangular markers. Playing fields are adjustable, with bigger lots creating more challenging matches. Kings are placed at the center field line, while shields line opposite ends.

Ready, Set, Throw!
While standing behind your side's field line, strategically toss battle axes at the opposing team's shields. Once you've toppled them all, take aim at the King! The team to overthrow the King (or rather, throw perfectly) wins the game.

Made in Vermont with unfinished Northern hardwood.

Includes 10 shields, six battle axes, four field markers, one king, a canvas storage bag and a rule sheet.

Comments about Vking Game:

I love this game. It's a family favorite. We had an older, less attractive edition called Kubb. Pretty much no one has ever heard of it, but once they try it, most people are hooked.

It's simple enough for children to learn, but can be challenging for adults. If you are playing with children, try making the playing field shorter so that they don't have to throw so far.

I've played this a number of times at picnics and at parks around NYC. It's like a people magnet - people come up, curious what you're doing, and sometimes are willing to join in. It's awesome.

    Comments about Vking Game:

    My family and I have been playing this game for a few years, when extended family from Sweden gifted it to us on a visit to the states. Although they call it Kubspiel rather than the Viking game, their original version is the exact same as this. It's great fun that the entire family can play (except for maybe small children as you're throwing wood across the yard). It's a great way to get everyone outside and laughing together!

    Comments about Vking Game:

    This is a great game for the beach, park or camping -- pretty much anywhere you can stick the field markers into the ground. Good for adults and older kids, but it can be hard to get older kids excited about a bunch of sticks. Get them to play once and they'll be hooked. Would not recommend for younger children, the tossing sticks can quickly become weapons!
