Whether Windows, Mac OS X or Linux, there are some excellent shareware and freeware cribbage games to download. Here are some we recommend that will soon have you playing cribbage for free:
Quick Cribbage for Windows
Wes Steiner’s Quick Cribbage lets you challenge your computer to a one-on-one game of cribbage:
- Designed to help you practice and hone your cribbage skills when a partner isn’t available.
- Teaches you how to count by displaying the points during play and at the end of each hand.
- Keeps score for you on a life-like crib board display.
MVP Cribbage is an attractive and playable shareware cribbage game with excellent graphics and animation, plus a range of computer opponents of varying strengths. This is one of the best free cribbage game downloads available, and if you register the game you get access to even more features. The simulation is so good that the computerized opponents sometimes fail to count all their points (Muggins aplenty for the sharp-eyed).

Just Cribbage didn’t work for me on Windows 7.

please is there a cribbage game i can just play with another player
like the two of us playing together on a computer
not on line but just two players against one another????
i want to play with my mother- but want to use computer not a deck and board
But you said you don’t want to play online like at ecribbage.com…so you want to play her while both of you sit in front of the same computer? Don’t think that anything is out there for you, but maybe someday. Meanwhile pick up a deck of cards and a cheap cribbage board and get away from the computer for awhile. You might even get to talk about a few things while you do. Happy Pegging!
Cant play this on Windows 7 or 8!!!!
Your Cribbage game is one of the best on net, but your managing of the card deals makes it no longer fun to play. I know after the first hand count that Jake will win again.
I will no longer play.
