"Strategy Crib" board

Reader Larry emailed to ask:


I have a 'strategy crib' board but no instructions as how to play the game. the two outside rows have 120 peg holes. the center row contains only 97 holes. where the fifth hole should be is number 5 or 9 with arrows on both sides indicating up or down.

It looks as though, while this board can be used for scoring regular Cribbage, the central row of holes is meant for some kind of enhancement to the game, but it's not clear what. Does anyone have any ideas?

Looking for a strategy cribbage board!

My friends and I have been looking for the strategy cribbage board for sometime. We almost wore out a second one. This board makes for a far superior contest with the extra possibilities moving ahead or reversing your progress depending where you land.
If anyone knows where this board may be purchased I am looking to purchase two of them.

strategy crib

The game is a little more involved than normal crib. The numbers are the number of holes you go backwards or forwards. if you land on any of the marked holes (across the row) you go the number of holes noted. For instance at the normal 4 hole there is a 5 with an arrow pointing forward therefore you go 5 more holes to hole 9, at the eigth hole there is a 5 with an arrow pointing backward that would take you back to hole 3. Same idea with the holes with the 9 and arrows but of course you would movve 9 holes forward or 9 backwards depending on the arrow direction. It changes the game as you may not want to peg a pair for 2 and end up going back 9 spaces. hopefully this helps you

Friends of ours have this strategy crib board and say that it is very challenging to play and more fun than regular crib. If you peg to a hole that has an arrow on it you must then move forward or back the number of points indicated. If you land in the "stink hole" with an exact number you must peg back 9 points. I would really like to know where I can buy one!

if anyone has a set of original rules they might be able to answer this question for me. If a run and a 15 occur at the same time during pegging e.g. 4 then 5 then 6 for 15, is the run scored first or the 15? or is it scored as 5?

Same time or separate

The rules do not specify how you take the points, but typically they are taken together. If taken separately, you should take the run first and then the 15, either way it needs to be accomplished before your opponent lays down another card. www.cribbage.org for rules
