  1. Great video. Helped a lot. Once, my wife and I played a few rounds it became easier. Thanks

  2. Really easy to follow, great instructions – thank you!!
    After reading the instructions that came with the game and still having no idea how to play I watched this video… and these instructions were so helpful.

  3. I believe that there’s also a rule that if you miss points and the other player catches the mistake they get the points that were supposed to be yours. At least that’s how my grandad taught me (my wife and I expect he was making rules up to help himself win 😉).

  4. I downloaded a free cribbage game to practice. That, plus this video, really helps. I used to play this with my grandad and want to teach my kids to keep the tradition alive.

  5. Stopped watching after 1 minute. Easier to solve Rubik's cube or solve time travel.

  6. This was very helpful, thanks for making this.

  7. Where is the pause and reverse? That was the fastest point counting ever.

  8. The easiest way to learn is to download the app and play against the AI for awhile.

  9. Help! I think I need my 8 year old niece to teach me!

  10. Another excellent post! However with respect "Nobs" should be "Nob". Speaking as a British person hailing from the city of the family that invented Cribbage the term that our American cousins use is incorrect. You score "Two for his heels" because, obviously, a person has two heels. Nob in this case is the old English term for "Head" therefore the correct term is "One for his nob".
    Cribbage terms have slipped into the English lexicon i.e. "Pegged out" "Streets ahead" (the blocks of 5 peg holes are known as "Streets") and where the American term "Skunk" or "Skunked" is used, the term still used in the UK is "Lurch" or " Lurched" therefore the term "Left in the lurch" has entered the lexicon thanks to Cribbage…

  11. so helpful not even the teacher her self could teach me. so great joy😀😀😀😀

  12. My mom bought this game and wanted me to play it I haven't even been paying attention during the video

  13. Just about to play with my gran, Glad I won't get blindsided by pegging play and nobs 🤣

  14. Pegging play? Sounds like a goth girlfriend asking for some freaky tings

  15. Thank you. I have been trying to read how to play but this makes it so much easier. One query, I take it when pegging that you don't reveal your hand to your opponent. You keep it concealed?

  16. any chance you can do a video on how to play crosscrib?

  17. You missed a 31 for 2. Player #1…. 10, 10, 10, and ACE. Right?

  18. The game also has a high element of chance that books and articles fail to mention. The gameplay consists mostly of judgement, simple arithmetic and continuous point scoring. It's still one of the best card games. I'd give it a difficulty rating of 3/5

  19. I thought this would be fun to play, but i now know you need a PhD in mathematics to play😢😢😢😢

  20. Have spent countless hours playing this fascinating and obscure gem of a game. It is ideal for 2 or 3 players

  21. This game is not hard once you know the hands, but mental arithmetic skill is important. If you can't count in your head, quickly, you will lose a lot

  22. 호올덤은 실력이 확실하넹 카홀덤сом

  23. 카홀덤Ĉōɱ NO뷰어 테이블 항시 풀방 운영되고있다

  24. Just gotta visit a Wisconsin bar or garage and ask nicely for a game of Cribbage

  25. Stupid game.
    There are way better games out there this one is ancient and outdated.

  26. I only play in real life, the online sites are rigged funny how someone always ends up with quads or crazy runs that never end

  27. Sounds made up lol Scientology is easier to understand sorry Scientology don't sue me (not sorry)

  28. Well explained! Thank you …I had forgotten how to play but I t’s like riding a bike!

  29. I love how there isnt a single joke in the comments section about certain terminology.

  30. Half the rules in cribbage sound like they were made up on the spot so the creator wins. "Oh uh actually lowest card gets first crib" "i get 2 points because a jack was pulled, but only me because im dealer and have the crib" "no you dont get a flush in your crib, the cut card also needs to be the same suit" "oh you lifted the back peg, less points for you!"
