Inkastare Tavling

Posted by Josh Feathers on Friday, April 13, 2012, In : Variants 
Based on the Inkastare Tavling scoring system built by GVB, I painted by own "house", threw 10, and scored them.

 I got this group scored at:

2 at 3 points = 6
5 at 2 points = 10
3 at 1 point = 3

Total: 19

I like the idea of this "skills competition" like this, and 8m shot competitions. I want to see this play out someday in a tournament. You can continue the discussion at ask.planetkubb.com, specifically the question "How about a Kubb Tossing as its Own Contest".

Splitting Kubbs (and Cake and Pie)

Splitting Hairs on Splitting Kubbs:

Splitting kubbs....literally (pic)

Kubb is… (brace yourself) a Team Sport. Barring local ladder tournaments to keep things interesting, no tournament has a 1 player per team minimum. Maximum baton rules are also a staple of tournaments to make sure the team that is the best...wins. Yet there are no maximum kubb throwing rules. A player serving as the inkastare (the kubb thrower) can throw all the kubbs, each game of a match; all matches in a tournament....
