Board & pegs?

Got a cribbage set for Xmas. The rules sheet that came with it is gibberish. I've looked at numberous sites with cribbage rules and nobody explains how to use the pegs on the board. I get that it's to keep score, but how? At what point do you start placing pegs on the board? Why does each player get more than one peg? How many points is a peg worth? What has to happen with the cards to allow movement on the board? Nobody explains any of this, without which cribbage is just another card game. Can someone here please explain it to me?

Help me date this old Khatam Ivory Inlaid Cribbage box!

Hi~
So, it is truly a mosaic inlaid top in full, with green, grey, black and ivory pieces. Khatam is apparently the pattern that the mosaic is in. It has two rows of holes on each long side with one hole at each end. There is no hinge, just a snuggly fit top that comes completely off of the box. The interior is a blue velvet, and there is evidence that the wood is maybe stained with something to get that color.

Yes this is genuine elephant ivory (I took it to a jeweler who helped me and many people on reddit agreed with my initial conclusion). Not trying to be mean just trying to avoid the obvious question!

I am looking for a range of years it might have been made in, or any other interesting information you could tell me about the box. THank you!
