I used to play Cribbage in a local league several years ago so it was natural for me to make one. I have made and sold many over the years and I am still making them. This is the latest, it is mahogany veneered with a boxwood stringing.

i have never played but Rockler sent me a cool jig to make a board I think I will make it a box instead like this only my way I do want to know if the cards used are special I didn’t recognize the brand in the box are cribbage players picky about the cards are they a standard deck

Hey dude …
Regular poker deck for the cards … (remove the jokers)

Paul, this is a beautiful crib set and the stringing really sets it off.

I’ll have to check out the jig rockler has. I’d love to make one of these. I have an impeccable cribbage record and challenge all comers :).

My dad plays daily at work with his buddies at lunch and I have been playing since I was 6. It’s a fun game

The easiest way to learn is to play with somebody who knows, so that he can point things out to you as you go along. here is a link to the rules.
