Most everyone in my family plays as well, I do not. My daughter's, (11) and (9) are in a cribbage club at school. It's cool seeing all the neatly designed boards at different camps and cabins.

I wonder what makes us the odd ducks out in the families

I blame too much to do outside to want to sit still at a table an play in the overheated house at holidays when most people in the family learned by the time I was old enough to slow down a bit I was chasing my own kids around.

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


Dam right…card games are an intricate building block on social and emotional skills that need to happen at the adolescent level!

Crib was played a lot by my Aunts and Uncles and parents at family gatherings. I played it a couple times as a teenager, but never got into it.

Play alot in the summer with my dad and brother when my parents travel up from Arizona and stay in their camper. I learned as a young teenager and took years to fully get it

Euchre is king in my area, to me that game can make 6 hours feel like 2

I enjoy the game. Cribbage has been played in our family for as long as I can remember. At our family reunion, we have a tournament with a traveling trophy.

Yep. I used to survey and we did a lot of out of town work. Played either cribbage or nickel ante poker most nights sitting at the motel. My family never played crib but the wife does. My parents had a friend from PA and growing up we went to his house most Sundays after church and they aoften ended up with a game of 31. Never knew anybody else out west who knew how to play, but all them boys from PA played 31.

I play, my 3 sons have played since an early age.
I’ve spent dozens of winters shooting coyotes for Ranchers from above the Hi Line down to Eagle Pass Texas, farther country west and too many places in between to remember. I cannot remember a single ranch/livestock operation where a crib board didn’t come out.
From the sitting rooms of incredibly wealthy oil money ranches to line trailers in places God couldn’t even find on a map I’ve played the game. Some of the utensils used for pegs cannot be spoken of in proper company. Some of the decks we used were past there prime we’ll say and leave it at that.
I’ve played with all sorts of folks and for all sorts of wagers. I’ve beat some, lost a fair amount, and can happily say I’d sit down to a game with any of those folks again.

Larry DiLulo (Pacific H&F, Thunder Mountain) used to play at the NAFA sales in Toronto. Good way to kill time while we waited for our species to come up for auction. Made the time go faster than just watching raccoon sell.
