|Kubb returns to the lawn for the first-ever Bryant Park Kubb Tournament.|
With advice from the US National Kubb Championship, we've planned our first-ever Kubb tournament for 6pm on Tuesday, September 23 on the lawn (rain date is Wednesday, September 24). The tournament will be single-elimination and open to teams between two and six members. The winning team members will win individual trophies and a Kubb set to share, kindly donated by Old Time Games. (And if you don't win, you can buy your own Kubb set with which to practice from the Bryant Park Shop.) Register for the tournament here.

It's hard to imagine that this relaxing lawn game was originally played by Vikings as a way to keep their skills of strategy and focus sharp in between raids. For those of you who haven't tried Kubb yet, the game is a combination of chess and bowling and played by two teams of between two and six players apiece. Here's a more in-depth look at the history and rules.
