Example
3456 = 4pts
if a player adds a 3 for a 4563 does this count as another run of 4?
Hi,
We've got a page on tournament rules here: Cribbage tournaments
In a roundrobin tournament, each team would play every other, so it doesn't matter if there's an odd number. In an elimination tournament (which it sounds like yours is) a team with no opponent is usually awarded a bye (a free pass to the next round, so the equivalent of a winning score  usually 2 points).
I hope this helps!

Custom Cribbage Boards are made from wood and qualitymade and very affordable for the holidays.
I have played on there but not for a while. There's a full review on the Online Cribbage page, though I'm not sure that'll help you much!
If you're a beginning player, check out the strategy guide for some useful tips.
Don't worry, you're not the only one to be confused! I get a lot of emails asking about how to score runs and pairs in Cribbage.
I suggest remembering the following simple rule:
So in your first example, the 32A run was already completed before the opponent played the Ace, so the Ace doesn't complete a new run, so it only scores for the pair.
In the second example, 332A, the Ace completes a run of 3, so scores 3. A further Ace doesn't complete any runs, so it doesn't score.
Simple!
You are correct.
Although you can score in the play from pairs or runs regardless of the count, you can ONLY score 152 if you make the total count 15. You cannot score just for playing a card which makes 15 when added to the previous card.
Design your own custom cribbage board.

Actually, this answer is slightly incorrect. Player 2 does NOT get a point for go at the time that Player 1 announces the go. Player 2 must play out the remaining playable cards (in this case, both of his remaining cards) before taking a point for the go. He does get the 3 peg points for the run of 3 (A23) and 4 more points for the run of 4 (A234) and THEN he gets 1 point for last card. He earns a total of 8 points in pegging this hand.
Hi,
During the play, you can only score 'fifteentwo' once  when you make the total 15. If you make the total 31, you can score another two points. Although you can count runs (eg 456) during the play, combinations of cards making 15 don't count for anything, unless they make the total 15.
They do count during the scoring phase of course. I hope this helps!
Better phrasing is that Player A shouldn't take his point until after he plays his ace. Because if he had a deuce left over, he would not get 1 for the go and then 2 for the 31, just the 2 for the 31.
Hi,
The answer to Question 1 is yes. You score a point for go when your opponent cannot play without going over 31.
What happens next is that Player A plays as many cards as he can without going over 31. No more points are scored (unless there are any runs, pairs, etc).
Question 2 does not apply, as Player A should not call 'go' when he is done. A new count is started instead. Player A plays his Jack and scores a point for last.
Yes, 25, 26 and 27 are all impossible cribbage scores, along with 19!
It might be interesting to try and prove it though!
I'd say that all cards should be shown at the scoring stage. For one thing, there might be muggins points to claim!
Here's another twist on this, from Gmommy7702:
I find it helpful to think about it the way it's phrased above:
Each card played scores points for any run it completes
In other words, if it doesn't complete a run of 3 or more cards, it doesn't score. The sequence 321 is a run, so the player playing the 1 pegged 3 points. The player who played the 2 after that did not complete a run (the 321 run had already been completed and scored) so should not have pegged any points.

First count the 15s. There are 4 ways of making 15 by choosing 86A from the hand, making 8 points.
Then you have two pairs, for 4 points. A grand total of 12!
I certainly play cribbage a lot! My husband and I are keen players and we often meet up with friends for a game or two. My kids like to play cards also, I would certainly rather they are doing something interactive, than watching TV.
