Cribbage players and beginners to the game will both enjoy Kings Cribbage. Kings Cribbage features play that captivates newcomers and tournament pros alike!
I came across this game completely accidently whilst looking for a cribbage board as a gift. I immediately sent off for 2 games from Canada thinking it might be an interesting variation on cribbage, which I have played since I was knee-high to a grasshopper.
Now I am hooked!!! Anybody who says there is little or no strategic play is obviously not playing it to its full potential! Scrabble is limited to 'knowing' a certain number of words ... with Kings Cribbage you really have to THINK, weigh up the possibilities, probabilities and take the odd risk now and then!
Buy it ... you'll rarely play cribbage or scrabble again!
Lots of fun for Cribbage Players. Its been in constant since Christmas.
One hint for players. We added stickers to emulate double and triple hand scores (like in Scrabble). It adds another layer of strategy.
For masters, try this. Consider any flush as
a 'dead hand' Then you can play tiles off of
a flush hand. If you specify the new tiles must be
of a different color than the flush, you can easily count new hands even if they interact with
If you like Cribbage like I do, you'll have lots of fun with this one. Probably not for non-cribbage players though. Some relatives I have in Canada were raving about it, so they sent me one to play. I hope to meet up with them soon so I can whip them at their own game! Plenty of strategy (similar to Scrabble's game play), and the rotating board is great. Best new game I've played since...cribbage!
This game's 104 attractive maple tiles come in two colors and are either numbered (2 to 10) or designated jack, queen, king, or ace. Points are scored by placing them on the 13 x 13 board to form cribbage combinations: totals of 15, two to five of a kind, and runs of three to five. You can earn bonuses by using all the tiles on your rack or by completing lines with five of the same color. This delightful and challenging innovation is a bit like playing Scrabble with cards instead of tiles. Its appeal will extend to both experienced cribbage enthusiasts and players seeking an enjoyable education in the calculations required in the card game.
