We go on Vacation every year and we see the same families playing this, we've played a couple times, so I am so glad we have our own
Fun yard game but seems to be over priced.

This game is fun but seems over priced. It is basically a bag of wooden cylinders and blocks.
Great gift!

Our young adult (30's) kids and their friends have deemed this a "hit"! Thanks, Grommet, for helping us find gifts that are unusual and greatly appeciated!
Great design

Exceptional concept and design. Easily set up and easily modified to meet players' limitations. Got it going in less than 5 minutes. The design is modern and worthy of a Mies VanderRohe.
Fun game

Inspired by a centuries-old Swedish lawn game and handcrafted from natural hardwoods in Vermont. Easy to learn, and fun to play.


Croquet, horseshoes, lawn bowling . When the usual outdoor games seem tired and tame, it’s time to pick up a battle ax and start felling soldiers. Now’s your chance to unleash your inner Viking–without risking life or limb.

The V:King lawn game is inspired by a Swedish game known as kubb or koob that outfits players with battle axes (wooden dowels) and challenges them to topple opponents’ shields (wooden blocks) and conquer the king. As legend goes, the original players were the Vikings, who played with the bones of dead enemies. This more civilized version is the beautiful handiwork of Martin Wilde, a professional hockey player who brought the love of the game with him from Sweden when he attended the University of Vermont. To make each V:King (pronounced vee-king) set, Martin and his wife Sarah use hardwood that comes from a responsibly managed forest in Quebec and is finished by them in Vermont.

In true Nordic spirit, the V:King game can be played in fair weather or foul, under the hot summer sun or atop winter’s frozen fields. The rules are simple, but it requires a combination of strength, strategy and precision to win, says Cameron McLeod, who told us about V:King—he’s the husband of Daily Grommet team member Kate. Horned helmets aren’t required… but certainly tolerated. more Their Story
