A guide to information about the University of Idaho's new board game collection and the the games that are a part of it

Cribbage

Cribbage is a fast-moving, classic card game that requires simple strategy and a little bit of devious planning. Players play and group cards in runs and try to build combinations that total 15. Cribbage has several features not found in other card games: the special board used for scoring, the crib or box, two different playing stages in each hand, and a unique scoring system.
