Let's play Cribbage! Skunk your opponent and race through the peg board with this free online card game.

At the beginning of the game, each player is dealt 6 cards. To start, pick 2 cards to remove from your hand, and press the "Send to Crib" button. You'll play with the remaining 4 cards. (In a 4-player game, each player is dealt 5 cards. Pick 1 card to remove from your hand.)

Players take turns putting cards in the center of the table. Each player tries to make the running total of these cards add up to 15 or 31. The running total of the cards in play is called the count.

Example:
If your opponent plays a 10 and you play a 5, the count becomes 15 , and you score 2 points.

If you can't make the count add up to 15 or 31, play any card. Players take turns playing cards until the count reaches 31.

If you can't play a card without making the count exceed 31, you automatically call GO , and the cards disappear. The count is reset to 0, and you play again.

When both players have played all of their cards, points are added automatically. To start the next hand, press "Begin Next Deal."

There are many ways to score points in Cribbage. You score points by bringing up the count to 15 or 31 or by making scoring combinations. Here are a few tips and tricks to help you on your way to winning!

When it's your Crib, fill it with cards that are likely to make scoring combinations - such as a 5 and a face card, or a pair.

When it's your opponent's Crib, fill it with cards that are not likely to make scoring combinations - such as various cards in different suits. Avoid sending cards that could add up to 15, like 5s.

Since Kings and Aces have the least chance of making Runs, they are OK to send to your opponent's Crib.

The really big points are in combinations of combinations that are scored during The Show. Try for real doosies like Double Runs - a Run in which two of the cards are also pairs. This gives you 8 points. And a real masterpiece is the Quadruple Run - a Run in which 4 of the cards are also pairs. This gives you 16 points!

Avoid starting a play with a 5 or a face card, because that could allow your opponent to raise the count to 15.

If you have a pair, try leading with one of the pair. If your opponent plays the pair, you can score Pairs Royal (3 of a Kind).

Hold onto 3s, 2s, and Aces until the end of the game so that you have more chance of keeping the count under 31.

A 4 is considered the optimal leading card, since it prevents your opponent from bringing the count to 15. Leading with the 4 allows you to keep your low cards until later in the hand.

Not sure what the "testing" is that was/is being done on cribbage, but I'm having various issues. Sometimes it will not load. Sometimes it will not let me "play again". But most recently I get a large white box at the bottom of the play screen ... which prohibits being able to play. I've tried the numerous "things" ... clearing cache, rebooting, etc., etc., but to no avail. Please finish testing and let the game get back to normal ... translation ... working properly.

In order to set up a cribbage game with your options, you will need to select a specific room rather than clicking on Play Now. Once you have clicked on a specific room your will be taken to a Pop Up that allows you to set up your options. If you want to invite a friend make your table private, give it a password and give the password to your friend. Your friend can then follow you to that room by finding you in their friends list and clicking on the link that shows what room you are in. Once there they will find themselves in the correct location and will be asked to enter the password. You will then be asked if you want to allow them to enter and you will approve them , they will be sent to your cribbage board and you are ready to play.

Still have the same problem. I sign onto pogo as JessaFlux and then choose a game (cribbage) , and then pick a room. When the room loads I am not JessaFlux, but have a different name. Is this Russian Roulette? Join a room and see what name you get there? :cry:

Pup with the table selection works fine; however, once I select a table the next pop-up does not appear. I have tried with different browser but to no avail. Other games like for instance "Jungle Gin" work fine. It is not my firewall or security settings or cache problem. Pogo.com is filtered through my firewall and security settings. I have never had similar problems and the game work fine until yesterday.

My system info:

Browser = Google Chrome 33.0.1750.154
Cookies Enabled? = true
Do Not Track = null
Resolution = 1600 x 900

Cribbage • spiders and not being able to set a rated table

By UndressJess1 » March 27th, 2014, 11:46 pm

Ok, what did you do now pogo? They got these weird creeper spiders by our names and people's avatars are not always showing up in the "who's here" section. Also, the "Make game rated" table set up button is grayed out so you can't make your table rated. What is happening? Is it an alien invasion? :o
