Captain's Cribbage is a variant of cribbage for three players. It is played as three-handed cribbage except that two players team up against the third. The lone player (the Captain) must make only 61 to win, while his opponents score jointly and must make 121 between them. Each person takes a turn at being the Captain.
The scoring of Captains Cribbage is as follows. After three games each player counts up the number of games he has won, whether alone or as part of a team, and the person scoring the most games is the winner. A two-handed game may optionally be played as a tie-breaker, though when serious money is at stake (such as the price of the next round), thrill-seekers may prefer to cut for it.
