  • Please score this for me   15 weeks 19 hours ago

    First off we are missing a card. Since you only described 7 of them and there should have been 8. I am also assuming that you are asking about pegging and there are NO runs, so lets call P1 and P2 and see what they end up with.

    p1 3 zero
    p2 3 for 2
    p1 3 for 6
    p2 A for zero
    p1 A for 2
    P2 A for 6
    P1 2 for zero
    P2 ?

    Looks like they both scored 8 points. Hope that helped!

  • Cribbage rules   15 weeks 19 hours ago

    During pegging and exposing your cards while counting your hand, your cards and hand must be plainly seen by the opponent. What you have played during pegging may very well determine what you have remaining in your hand and a good opponent will use that information to plot their next move against you.

  • Anyone heard of a 70 point board?   15 weeks 19 hours ago

    I agree, it is most likely for scoring games or storing your pegs.

  • How to score this hand?   15 weeks 19 hours ago

    If it takes 3 of your cards to make 15 and you have 4-of a kind, then that hand will always be 24.(except quad 5's) ex: 7, 7, 7, 7, A or 3, 3, 3, 3, 9, 44447 etc. If it takes less than 3 cards to make 15 or more than 3, than you can have no more than 20. ex: 66669, KKKK5, 33336, 66663, 77778 etc.

    There is NO requirement to vocalize each point in your hand. It is however; common courtesy to do so. If you have played long enough with experienced players, it will speed the game up if you announce your correct points in your hand. Counting 15's in your hand first is the easiest way to learn the game, but even that is not required. There are always different ways to skin the same cat.

  • How do you score this instance in pegging?   15 weeks 19 hours ago

    Not sure who you are keeping score for so lets break it down shall we?
    P1 zero
    P2 zero
    P3 15 for 5
    P1 18 for 4
    P2 23 for 3
    P3 28 for 2
    P1 31 for 2

    The total points scored during this round are P3 gets 7, P1 gets 6 and P2 gets 3. 16 total points pegged. Not sure where you came up with 40? Were you trying to score your hands while pegging? Pegging is a distinct action BEFORE counting your hands. It is NOT included at the same time.

  • Three and four-handed cribbage   15 weeks 19 hours ago

    In 4-handed cribbage (aka partner's cribbage) you play with a partner who is on your team and sits between you and another player. In 3-handed cribbage, if you want to keep score, I would recommend 1 point for a win, 0 for a loss and 2 points for a skunk. So if you beat one, skunked one, you would get 3 points and the other players would get zero. If you want to make it more fun, you could also do 3 points for a double skunk, but those are very rare.

  • Pegging - is this a 3 point run?   15 weeks 19 hours ago

    Runs MUST be consecutive cards. Since there were two sevens played, there cannot be a run.

  • experienced Cribbage players needed!   15 weeks 19 hours ago

    Skat and cribbage are in no way related. Not even remotely close. They are as related as a bear and a duck. Only that they are both animals and skat and cribbage are both card games. Aside from that, they are completely different. I did not click on your link, as there is no way to know if it contains a virus or malware. I would advise other people not to click on it as well.

  • scoring runs during play?   15 weeks 6 days ago

    I laid a 5 to complete a 5,6,4,7,8 run. Does it count for 5 points and if not; why.

  • Question?   16 weeks 3 days ago

    Correction, 3-3-3-6 and a 6 being cut would result in an 18-points hand!

  • Pegging - is this a 3 point run?   16 weeks 3 days ago

    The sequence is 8-7-7-9 so the 8 is buried indeed. The last 3 cards would have to make a sequence for you to score 3 points.

    But you get 2 points for 31!

  • How many 24 hands are there?   16 weeks 3 days ago

    Please show me how 66663 equals 24. Been playing Cribbage for more than 50 years and never experienced anyone counting this as 24 until recently. Would appreciate clarification.

    Thank you.

  • Help with 3 handed crib   16 weeks 4 days ago

    The question has come up, if a player pegs out and one player is over the skunk line and the third player is behind the skunk line is it a single win or a skunk or both. 3 points?

  • Please score this for me   16 weeks 5 days ago

    Hand was 2-2-3-4 and the up card was a 2. We scored he hand 24.
    Is this correct?

  • Rationale for not scoring a 4-card crib flush?   17 weeks 1 day ago

    You would have scored 15-2, 5 for your straight and 5 for your flush, for a total of 12 points.

  • scoring runs during play?   17 weeks 3 days ago

    If the total in a play is 15 for two points and it is also the "last card" in the play does the player get 1 point for last card?

  • Out of order runs   17 weeks 4 days ago

    Player 1: 4
    Player 2: 6
    Player 1: 5 (scores five: two for the 15 and three for the run of 3)
    Player 2: 3 (scores four for the run of 4)

  • Pegging - is this a 3 point run?   17 weeks 4 days ago

    8,7,7,9 during play does not count as run. Like you suggested, the 8 is "buried" under the two 7s.

  • How do you score this instance in pegging?   18 weeks 3 days ago

    no it is not correct. Played in order, 6543 pegged 4 points - 435 pegged 3 points - 55 pegged 2. Final 3 pegged 2 points for 31. The Double Run/Triple Run does not peg in the play of the hand.

  • Pegging - is this a 3 point run?   18 weeks 3 days ago

    By definition a run is any 3 cards in order (7,8,9) but not necessarily played in sequence (9,7,8).
    You can't derive an order from any three as played - (8,7,7)(7,7,9) so the pair negates the run by burying the 8.
    Look on the bright side, tho' still scored 31!
