Cribbage is a card game which uses a points scoring board. It is usually played by two people, although it can be played by three or four, or by a pair of two-person teams. A popular pub game and many pubs have cribbage leagues

Popularity
Cribbage is popular in pubs and clubs, where you are likely to find a league if the game is played seriously.

Location
With minimal equipment, a pack of playing cards and a scoring board, means this game can be played virtually anywhere. It is a very popular pub game and is the only card game that can be legally played for money in British pubs.

Age
Can be played by all ages, there are no real age restrictions unless you are talking about pub teams and then of course it does depend on the license the actual pub has as to the minimum age that children are allowed into the bar if accompanied.

Ability
Cribbage can be played by all abilities but there is a certain amount of strategy/tactics which can be involved. It is about getting to know which cards to keep and which cards to discard at the start of the game to maximise your points score.

Description
Cribbage or Crib is a card game for two, three or four players that involves forming combinations of cards over a series of hands to accumulate points. Players discard cards into the crib which the dealer tallies up for his score at the end of each game. There are two distinct scoring stages the play and the show. The play involves laying cards in the attempt to score points. The show is where each player scores their hand along with a turned-up card. The dealer scores his hand plus the crib.
