Cribbage is a fun, brain-teasing game that is sure to provide hours of entertainment. Using a wooden board, plastic pegs and a deck of standard playing cards, players will compete to be the first to score 121 points.
This cribbage board features three fun colours, red, blue and green. Made from high-quality wood with a durable hinge for easy closure, this cribbage game features a plastic slot on the back for convenient peg storage.
Cribbage is a game that can be played with two to four players. For a two-person game, each player takes two matching color pegs and places them in the starting positions on the board.
Shuffle the cards and the person with the lowest card goes first. The dealer in each round automatically moves one of their pegs three spaces to balance out the disadvantage of going second.
Each player gets six cards, and after looking at them, puts two down to form the crib for the dealer’s second hand. At the end of the round, the dealer gets the points in the crib. A player’s remaining four cards become the draw deck.
Depending on what card is drawn, players are awarded points and move their pegs forward in a walking formation, meaning you alternate which peg gets moved forward. Play continues until there are no more cards left. The first person to reach the last space on the board with one peg is the winner.
This fun cribbage set contains one board, nine plastic pegs (three red, three blue, three green) a deck of standard playing cards and instructions. Cribbage is recommended for ages 8 and up.
