Origin of the 29 board?

Doug Mcleod emailed to ask:

Do you know the origin of the 29 Crib board? Who originally designed and produced it?

We're opening this one up to readers! Does anyone know the answer?

Counting 4-4-4-4-7

TJ Henderson emailed to ask how to count this common cribbage hand. Here's a breakdown of how it scores:

First count 15s. You need the 7 to be part of any 15 (as the remaining cards are all even and so can't make an odd total). You can make 15 with 7 plus any two 4s. So, how many different pairs of 4s can you pick from the four 4s?

Looking for travel cribbage set

Shawna wrote in to ask:

I am looking to buy a complete cribbage set, however I do not know a THING about Cribbage. Could you kindly let me know of what I should buy, and if you have any suggestions of where I should buy (online), that would be fantastic.

I would like to spend no more than $50 on a complete set. I am looking for a set that you can travel with, along the lines of a fold up cribbage set.

Hi Shawna, well I think a folding travel cribbage set would be ideal for you. The set below is one that we sell through the Cribbage Corner affiliate scheme; it includes a pack of cards, cribbage board and pegs, and retails at $19.48:

Travel Cribbage Game with Playing Cards

Travel Cribbage Game with Playing Cards

From one side of the pond to the other, the game of Cribbage has a faithful following. And now it can follow you wherever you go in a handy carrying case. The sturdy, high-quality leatherette case neatly stores a deck of plastic coated playing cards and a folding cribbage board inside. The wooden cribbage board measures 7.25 x 2 when unfolded, and stores 4 cribbage pegs on the underside of the board.


Once you have got your cribbage board, have a look at our cribbage rules section and that should get you started! A great way to learn to play cribbage is to play against the computer, so try one of our free cribbage games to download for Windows.

I hope this helps.

Cribbage Corner relaunches!

Cribbage Corner is one of the biggest cribbage sites on the Web and has been around for over 10 years. We've had emails from many of you asking what happened to the old site and if it would ever return. Well, Cribbage Corner's previous hosting provider lapsed, so it has taken a while to transfer all the content over to the new site provided by HostMonster.com - which we thoroughly recommend if you want to host your own web sites!

As well as the existing pages about cribbage rules, variants, cribbage boards and hints and tips on how to play cribbage, we've added some new features including our Cribbage Forum. There are also listings to help you find free cribbage game downloads and places where you can play online cribbage. We even have advice on strategy from cribbage champion Michael Schell.

Why not join Cribbage Corner so that you can post questions and answers in the forum and personalize various aspects of the site to suit yourself. It's free and all you have to do is enter your email address. We promise not to spam you, by the way.
