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

      My grandsons math skills increased with cribbage playing because you are constantly adding numbers in your head. Their teachers noticed too.

      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.
