The only card game that can be legally played for money in English pubs, cribbage evolved from a shipboard game called noddy. It was one of the few games that could be played on the rolling seas, as it used pegs and holes that could be carved directly into a sailor's bunk. A 17th-century British poet made cribbage popular in English courts, where he distributed packs of marked cards to the aristocracy, inevitably beat them out of tidy sums, and managed to gamble his way to a $7 million contribution to King Charles I's army. Mahogany-stained three-fold case includes cards, pegs, and rule book.

  • For any number of players; ages 8 and up
  • Dimensions: 5 1/2"W x 2"H x 3 1/4"D

      Comments about English Pub Cribbage Game:

      My wife and I have been searching for a nice cribbage set, and the English pub set fills the bill nicely. It's attractive and well-constructed and, when closed, very compact. The vintage-looking playing cards that are included are a nice touch. The only negative: the metal pegs sit loosely in the peg holes. A more snug fit for the pegs would have earned this product five stars.

Some are lucky breaks, and some are potholes!

        Category: Home Décor/Historical Games
        Marbles can be traced back 5,000 years to the ancient Egyptians, but were probably used more for divination than recreation. Minoan art from 1435 B.C. found on the island of Crete shows kids playing the game with what explorers called maramos, from the Greek word for agate. Over time, the pieces and the game became known as marbles, and today they're mostly made of glass using a German invention called the marbles scissor. In this vintage set you'll receive a canvas bag containing 20 marbles, a "knuckle-down cloth," a wooden scoring bridge and shooter, and detailed instructions for different versions of marble games.
