Captain's Cribbage is a variant of cribbage for three players. It is played as three-handed cribbage except that two players team up against the third. The lone player (the Captain) must make only 61 to win, while his opponents score jointly and must make 121 between them. Each person takes a turn at being the Captain.
Cribbage rules have remained largely unchanged since the game first originated in the 17th century, but there are many variations on the standard rules of cribbage and many different forms and variants of the game. Captain's Cribbage is perhaps the best known, and most widely played.
