10 Ways Kubb is Like Life

  1. Both are obscure games with controversial origins dating back centuries or not.
  2. Both have multiple, often competing, rulesets.
  3. Both have a long game and a short game. The long game is kinda boring. The short game is very dramatic and intense. It’s easy to focus on the short game, but only the long game wins. You’ll need to be good at both.
  4. Everyone is happier when a referee doesn’t need to be involved. Especially because mostly – there isn’t a referee.
  5. Everyone takes both to a different degree of seriousness.
  6. You’re likely your own worst enemy, in both.
  7. Both reward persistence, curiosity, and passion.
  8. Both are more interesting once you declare arbitrary goals for your performance.
  9. It’s not over until someone calls time.
  10. Both are better without shoes.
