  • Counting points   7 years 48 weeks ago

    You are quite right. You can only count any given cards once. It doesn't matter if you arrange them in a different order, they are still the same cards, and they can only be used once in each combination to make 15.

    By contrast, if you had, say, 6-6-3-3, then you could make 15 two ways: once with each of the 3s. You can use the 6s again this time, so long as you combine them with a different 3.

  • "corners" on the cribbage board   7 years 49 weeks ago

    Ok,
    I am a bit confused about scoring the go. I will present a couple of sample hands, could someone tell me if i am scoring them correctly?
    ****Hand One
    Me: lay down 5, count is 25
    Opponent: Go
    Me: lay down 3, count is 28
    Me: lay down 2, count is 30
    Do i peg one only for the go, or 2, one for the go, then one for the next go
    What if the 2 was a 3, making the count 31, would i peg 2 or 3
    *****Hand 2
    Me: i lay down a 10, count is 30
    opponent: Go
    Me: i can't play
    Do i get a point for the GO?

    I have been fortunate to be dealt 2 29 hands in the last year.
    The first was very conventional and was acknowledged by all.

    The second was dealt to me and the hand was played, but my wife had first count and closed the game out. She contends that since I did not get to count the hand that it does not officially count as a 29 hand.
    I contend that the hand was dealt and played and the fact that I was unable to count it was irrelavant.

    I will be intersted in hearing form your constituents.

  • The 29 hand in cribbage   7 years 49 weeks ago

    I was playing a game with a friend and we ended up having the exact same hand! What are the odds? Actually, we had 5 of the 6 cards dealt the same (i.e. 4,5,6,7,8,9 & 3,5,6,7,8,9), but we discarded the odd one and were both left with 5,6,7,8. What are the probability of that happening?

    Thanks,

    the count would be 24, fifteen 12 once you make all the possible suit combinations with the threes plus 12 for the four of a kind
    heart = club
    heart = spade
    heart = diamond
    club = diamond
    club = spade
    diamond = spade

  • Can you go over 31 in the play?   7 years 50 weeks ago

    "How many 15's are in this count. I count 15's twice but I am told that you can only count the 3 cards one time. Is this true? My problem is if there was a third 6 that there is 3 15's. Why can I not count 2 15's with the 2 6's? "

    I presume you are talking about counting the hand at the end of play. In that case, let's say you have 6-6-3-10 with K as your up card. This hand counts as 15-2 (6-6-3) and a pair for 4 (6-6). Remember, you are counting the UNIQUE combinations of cards adding up to 15. Let's look at your other example:

    Hand is 6-6-6-3 with a K up card. It would help to label the cards, like so:
    6S-6D-6C-3H, KS (Spades, Diamonds, Clubs, Hearts)

    This hand counts as 15-6 and a triple for 6 more, for a total of 12 points in the hand. You can make 15 like so: 6S-6D-3H, 6S-6C-3H, 6D-6C-3H. Counting 6S-6D-3H and 6D-6S-3H as two combinations does not count; they are the same three cards.

  • Cribbage rules   7 years 51 weeks ago

    How do you score the "go" if you're playing four person cribbage if you're paying teams? If each player can't play their cards does it just continue to go around and each person pegging 1 point until it lands with the player who originally played the last card to restart play? I hope I'm not confusing with my explanation. Thanks for the help.

  • Five player cribbage   8 years 1 week ago

    Here is how I play with 5 players:

    There are 3 teams, 2 teams of 2 players and 1 person that plays solo but ALWAYS gets the crib. Deal rotates normally from player to player but the solo player always get the crib.

    So you have to have at least 3 lane cribbage board.

  • Cribbage rules - the scoring   8 years 2 weeks ago

    Opponents are basically five points from the finish and starting to count their cards in the '31' play. If an one player scores 6 points, is he allowed to peg out at this point?

  • scoring during the play   8 years 2 weeks ago

    No, all sequences are reset with the count, so runs and pairs cannot carry over.
