    3 = 3
    3 = 6 for 2 (pair)
    3 = 9 for 6 (three of a kind)
    A = 10
    A = 11 for 2 (pair)
    A = 12 for 6 (three of a kind)
    2 = 14

    That's only four cards, so I'll assume the fifth one is worthless...

    4+4+7=15 three different ways, so that's 6 points.

    Three distinct pairs of 4's = another 6 points.

    Total = 12.

    Yes it does. The cards that make the run don't have to be in order.

  • The 29 hand in cribbage   19 weeks 2 days ago

    My brother Kenny & I were facing off in cribbage. He had a perfect hand of 29 points...but he couldn't peg his points! I pegged out on him because I had first count! He wanted to kill me! (Not really).

  • Cribbage tournament rules   19 weeks 4 days ago

    To add onto this article, I want to say that it is your tournament and that you choose how to run it and customize it to your liking.
    I have my family tournament where we divide into divisions and the winners advance just to speed things up but one such idea I think is really cool is one that I do with my friends where we treat the tournament as a baseball league. As a woodworker of cribbage boards and a baseball fan, each of my friends and I all have custom baseball-style diamond cribbage boards which we to an annual tournament we do every year on Labor Day and represents our ‘home field’. If you are in a time crunch, this is not the ideal way to host a tournament however I wanted to share with you to show that the ideas are endless when it comes to customizing tournaments. Just like in baseball, each match-up is a 3-game series. All 8 of my friends (by a weird coincidence) just happen to like 8 different baseball teams and are each a fan of 4 NL and AL teams. Players are divided into the NL and AL and would play other players within the same league in 2 3-game series (at each person's home board) and play each in the other league in 1 3-game series for a total of 30-game season (3*2*3+4*1*3) before advancing to the playoffs.

    3 handed crib if lead with 4 2 5 3 than ace is it still a run even if you Barry your own cards

  • Cribbage rules - the play   19 weeks 6 days ago

    You will have to bear with me on this one. And quite possibly get a pack of cards out.

    A plays 7
    B plays 4
    C plays 6
    D plays 5

    We all agree that is 4 for a run

    Player A then knocks
    Because his 7 has not been covered up
    Player B plays 6

    The play then was counted for a run of 3
    B6
    A7 (Not covered from being played first card)
    C6

    This was counted for a run is this correct.

    You have to expose your cards to your opponent. Both in pegging and in counting your hand. Hiding them is a violation of the rules.

  • Anyone heard of a 70 point board?   20 weeks 3 days ago

    There are 60 pegs around the circle, go around twice for a game of 120. Are the extra holes in the middle or in a row up the middle? That could just be for storing your pegs.

  • Cribbage tournament rules   21 weeks 2 days ago

    According to a set of Tournament Rules/Procedures I wrote for my family tournaments, in order to cut down on time, once 8 or more players get involved, we divide everybody into 2 divisions and the top 2 Finishers in the Match Point Standings for each division advance to a 4-person, single-elimination bracket (with each round being a Best-of-3 series). We call the Round of 4 the Crossover Round because the Top Points Finisher from Division A plays the 2nd Points from Division B and vice versa for the other 2.

    You can customize the tournament rules to your liking but (just so you know) for 16-20 person Tournaments, we divide everybody into 4 divisions and only the winners advance to the Bracket Round (Crossover Round).

  • Go   21 weeks 4 days ago

    Player B can't take his Go until playing all he can up to 31. In this case, he plays all but his last card, takes a Go, and then one more point for Last Card.

  • impossible scores   21 weeks 6 days ago

    This would equal 21.

    there are 3 combinations of 3,3,4,5 (15) so this would score 6
    there are 3 combinations of 3,3 (Pair/2 of a kind) this would also score 6
    there are 3 combinations of 3,4,5 (Run/straight) this would score 9

    9+6+6=21 therefore this hand would score 21 not 19

  • How to score this hand?   22 weeks 5 days ago

    Total= 16

    10-Jack-Queen in 4 different combo's = 12
    pair of Jacks = 2
    pair of Queens = 2

    total would be 16

    and if the 10 was the same suit as either Jack it would =1 more

  • Cribbage rules   22 weeks 6 days ago

    When playing the cards (or pegging), do you stack your cards on top of each other so that you can not see the previous card played? Or do you place them so that you can see all of your previous plays?

  • Cribbage rules - the scoring   23 weeks 5 days ago

    You played correct by one card at a time for the extended runs but not the one point for a go. It should have been 31 for two points
