Overview

This application is recommended for ages 6+.

Cribbage is the unofficial pastime of submariners. Deep into the dark ocean abyss, a game of skill and chance functions as an ideal way to take ones mind off of sharks and maritime ghosts. Thanks to Cribbage for NOOK Family of Devices by Barnes & Noble, this ages old game can now be taken to the streets to the subways even to aircrafts! The object of the game is to be the first player to score a target number of points, typically 61 or 121. Points are scored for card combinations that add up to fifteen, and for pairs, triples, quadruples, runs, and flushes. Play in varying ranges of difficulty or up the ante by announcing and playing a Muggins, an option that must be announced before game play begins which can lead to you swiping unclaimed points!

    Almost, but not quite there yet...

    I bought this app because of the good reviews, but I am an avid Cribbage player, and there are several things that need to be fixed. The game scores incorrectly in many ways: you can only count a 4-point flush if you have 4 cards of the same suit in your hand, and a 5-card flush if they match the show card. The app scores a 4-card flush if you have 3 of the same suit in your hand, and they match the suit of the show card. When playing your crib hand, you can only score a 5 card flush, but the app allows a 4-card flush in the crib. Also, when laying down cards in the initial phase of play, if you make 3 of a kind in a row, the app scores 2 for the pair, and then 6 for 3 of a kind - you should only score 6 points when you lay the third of the same card down.

    I am also disappointed in the recommendations of which cards to throw to the crib. I beat the app almost all the time (because I ignore the recommendations). I am not sure what programming is behind which cards they think we should keep and which to discard to the crib, but I am not impressed with either the recommended moves, nor with the app's decisions.

    I do have fun playing it, and I have adjusted to the incorrect scoring, but I definitely think there is room for improvement. At least it doesn't cheat like the other Cribbage app I have on the iPad!

    One of my favorite games -- with cards or electronic

    I did notice, though, a couple times where the score of the hand wasn't posted. My opponent had a score of 17 but the game posted it as 0 even though its "explain the score" screen showed 17.

    Decent cribbage game

    The game is pretty good, although twice now it has not counted the points correctly. It was only a two point difference, but obviously there is a flaw somewhere in the programming. But I don't feel like the computer is cheating against me like some games seem to do.

    Fun!

    I've been playing cribbage since I was about 15 years old. I love the game. This version is very good. Nice and fast. The only thing is that I beat the game most of the time in expert mode. I guess that's not really a bad thing. Great fun!

    Recommend the game

    I have played cribbage for many years and overall this is a slightly easy to beat but fun just the same. Games are quick since you have to do no counting. The only error I've found with the program is for some reason if you get a run and 31 at the same time (with the same card) you only get the points for the 31.

    Good app

    This is a good app. I wish it didn't count my own hand for me, though. I like doing that myself.

    Great app

    The best cribbage app I've found. No glitches and the play is fast. The "explain" function shows the scoring for each hand in detail which is handy for a beginner or when you get an unusual hand. Highly recommended.

    great game

    My husband & I start our day off with a coffee & game of real cribbage.
    I play this app in my leisure & it gives me a few new options to play against my husband in the morning. Love the game.

    If you enjoy cribbage, this is a good one. Like the helpful hints sometimes but other times they suggest something I would never do.

    good graphics

    Plays like traditional cribbage. Would be better if cards were a little larger.
