Inside How to Play Cribbage, you'll discover everything you need to know to have fun with this fascinating game:

Originally invented in the 1600s, cribbage became very popular with sailors (especially in the mid-1900s). During World War II, American submarine crews on long voyages became avid cribbage players. Admiral Richard O'Kane was once dealt a perfect hand in a cribbage game - and his lucky cribbage board has been passed down by generations of submarine captains.
You can embrace the modern tradition of cribbage by learning the simple and compelling rules of the game. All you need to play is a friend (or a group of friends), a deck of cards, and a cribbage board (a board with 121 holes and pegs for each player).
With this easy-to-understand guidebook, you can quickly pick up the basics of the game, including pegging, counting, and "quick counting". You'll learn about the "perfect 29", how to win with 121 points, and how to "skunk" your opponents. You'll find out how to use the "crib" (the namesake of the game) to your advantage - both as the dealer and a non-dealer. This book even offers sneaky tactics for experienced players, such as using "muggins" to keep your opponents honest and earn more points!
