Seems to me a lot of Card games or board games are regional. Cribbage, from what I've seen, is common throughout Alaska, and is a common game from Minnesota, Wisconsin. Anybody out there play cribbage. You guys from other regions of the U.S. or Canada play it?

I used to play quite a bit. It is one of the few games that you only need two players.

Crib is king in our house.


I can't believe that cop put me in the back seat when I clearly called shotgun.

I enjoy playing, but my wife doesn't. Used to work with a couple guys that were good competition. Matter of fact, they were all better than me on average.

Interesting! So far, it's sounding like a northern game. Is it Canadian also?

All of my buddyís in North West Ontario play crib. Several here in NE too. Me, not so much. I do have a couple cool boards though.

Play all the time in Saskatchewan. We play at work to. Also have a variation of the game that you lay down cards on a board. 5 cards wide and 5 cards high. One team makes their hands going up and down the other team side to side. Middle row on each team is the only row the other team canít put a card in. Cut card goes directly in the Center. Build your hands from there and each player lays a card anyplace on the board except the other teams middle row. Hard to explain but I enjoy this crib game more because their is a lot more strategy involved.

Played at an Elks Lodge in Reidsville NC. Lumber dealer donated beautiful wood for a multi-game table-bar. Was popular. Iíve played a few games but not many.

Cribbage player here although not as much as I'd like.

Used to play a lot of pinochle as well. No one my age plays it and the old boys that used to play it at the cafe are all pretty much gone. It's been a few years, I'd have to watch a few hands to get the hang of it again.

yes and played every morning at the lake with the kids growing up.
When the daughter went into Grade one she asked if anyone could count, after several kids tried after about 12 they were muffled, no problem my daughter went up to 31 and the teacher stopped her. Then she asked if they could count by two's, and waiting for the others she had a roll;
15-2
15-4
15-6
15-8
15-10
and a bushel !
Muffled the teacher asked.."a Bushel "
yup just like buns you buy 12
The light came on when the teacher asked ? Cribbage, and I have skunked my dad many times
and with those Math skills she went on to be a land surveyor
