If you are suffering from bocce or croquet ennui this summer, a traditional Viking lawn game (also known as Kubb) has been retooled by a Seattle design duo. Sallyann Corn and Joe Kent of Fruitsuper Design in Seattle have taken a Swedish classic (sometimes described as a combination of bowling and horseshoes) and given it some modern appeal. The aim is to topple the king with sticks before the opponent does; as with all lawn games, the premise is simple but the skill set is earned. For more on the duo's work, go to Fruitsuper Design . Above: The King's Game Set is $179 from Huset Shop. The aim of the game is to topple over the king with one of the sticks. Above: A carry-anywhere tote bag holds the 21 solid hardwood game pieces. Above: Each set comes with an easy-to-follow guide and an all-important rule book.
