    Good fun!

    I love cribbage, and this is great when I want to play and have no one to play it with! I have seen some complaints about the computer miscounting - it is done that way on purpose. If you enable 'muggins' in your menu, you can take the points that the computer misses. And it will still occasionally miss points in the higher levels, just not as frequently as it does in the lower difficulty levels. Well worth the price.

    Computer is a cheater

    I still enjoy playing, but 20 point cribs more than once EVERY GAME? And when I get a great hand, I usually have to split it up to contribute points to the computers ((no doubt excellent) crib. Also, how does the computer cut to the exact card it needs ALMOST EVERY HAND it cuts? Just to test it out, I started playing 3 games in a row, starting a new game whenever the computer scored more than 30 points between its hand and crib; All three times, I had to start over before I was 25% of the way down the board because the computer was getting so many IMPROBABLY GOOD hands. Ive been playing cribbage since I was a child, trust me. This game cheats.

    Great fun

    The card game I was taught as a child and passed down from generations has now come to my nook. I absolutely love this game and have had no problems with it whatsoever. I recommend this game. A BIG favorite for sure!

    Not worth buying

    I really looked forward to playing this game, but the reality was a great disappointment. The computer gets too many wonderful hands, and when I get a good hand the game locks up. I don't need that much frustration.

    Fun

    This game is easy to learn and fun to play. It doesn't take long to get into the game with the help of a user-friendly tutorial. Colorful, with many options. Love it!

    Love to Play Crib

    Love the game. I think the computer cheats! Everytime I get a great hand I have to split it up or give points to the computer's crib. Everytime it's my crib, I get a lousy hand with no points and no decent cards to put in my crib, and the computers hand and crib are rarely under 8 points each. Love the options of cards, boards and pegs. Still enjoy playing even though I still think it cheats.

    Random My Rear

    I read where the developer of the program said the cards were selected randomly. Bull! Ive been playling this game for fourty years and have not seen hands get to the other side. Play this for practice, but dont get your hopes up.

    Fun but

    Fun but come on. Every hand computer seems to get double digit scores. Not realistic. Like the interface though. Wish it was more like real cribbage in game play though!

    Easy, easy

    This game has such a smooth flow and is much fun to play. It constantly challenges me to make better choices regarding what to put in the crib and what to play. Love the difficulty!

    Bad developer.

    The ONLY way to have a fighting chance is at the EASY level with Muggins ON. Any other setting, the comp clearly gets a weighted advantage, intended or not.

    Cheating game

    I have played cribbage since I was a kid. You see 16 or 18 point hands once in a while. The computer gets them in medium mode about once every 3 hands and sometimes both in the hand and crib. I bought this to relax - now I am just frustrated. I will be deleting from my Nook when I am done typing this. The developer posted a comment that the game is completly random - He/she should take their random generator to Vegas.

    Lucky deals?

    The computer sure gets alot of flushes (5 cards) along with a perfect cut. The computer seems to get more than its share of 12 and 16 point hands. Does not seem as random as claimed.

    Eh, so-so...

    Great graphics! As far as gameplay goes, I'm going to call foul on the developer's claim of a totally random hand. Frankly, I'm sick of losing to the computers completely miraculous and multiple 20+ point hands. Since I'm not the ONLY person who has mentioned this in their review, I'm going to strongly suggest that the program developer take a second look at their product with the customer's concerns in mind, and make some adjustments.

    Crib

    I absolutely love this game. We used to play it as a family every Saturday morning. Great memories. The only thing I would like to see changed is to show the cards in the crib instead of just listing them. Maybe its just me,

    Sorry

    I bought because I love to play cribbage! Im a decent to above average under normal circumstnces. The game unfortunately has uncanny luck. Contacting the company suggesting they even the playing field you recieve denials. I am disgusted enough that I have decided to right a poor review weekly until they fix what should be an enjoyable card game!
