Jake is an excellent Crib player, though the scoundrel has been known to cheat due to some programming errors beyond our control - as we are not the original programmers of the game. We have had players tell us the game is too hard and should be replaced. On the other hand, we have players contact us saying the game is "perfect" as it is, and "leave it alone", and "it's a great game for teaching the rules and play of Cribbage".

How to Play Cribbage (Crib)
|Scoring Rules for Cribbage|
The game of Cribbage can end at either 121 points or 61 points. The play ends the moment one player reaches the agreed total, whether by pegging or counting his/her hand. If a non-dealer "goes out" by the count of his/her hand, the game immediately ends and the dealer may not score either his/her hand or the crib. When play ends, the hands are counted in this order: non-dealer's hand(s) (1st), dealer's hand (2nd), and then the crib (3rd). Cribbage Scoring Combinations: Crib scores between 0 and 29 are all possible - except for 19, 25, 26 and 27.
