Kings Cribbage

Guest Author - Megan Romer

Kings Cribbage, by Cococo games, is a fantastic new twist on the classic game of Cribbage, which was traditionally played with cards and a peg-board. Kings Cribbage has shaken that concept up a little bit, and has made a game using tiles instead of cards and a grid-like board that looks somewhat like a Scrabble board.

As in traditional Cribbage, players are trying to make Crib hands (fifteens, runs and pairs) using five tiles at a time. However, they place them on the gridded game board. Like in Scrabble, players can add on to each other's Crib hands and play them like a crossword puzzle.

When you play traditional Cribbage, you play with two decks of cards, typically one blue-backed and one red-backed, and you can score bonus points for playing a Crib hand with all one color card. Kings Cribbage has dealt with that aspect of the game, too, by making 52 tiles each of light and dark colored wood.

This game is a great way to get the Cribbage fiend and the Scrabble nut in the house to play a game together. It's a wildly fun update on a classic.
