The classic card game Cribbage also known as Crib, Cribble, and Noddy. A card game traditionally for two players, that involves playing and grouping cards in combinations which gain points. Cribbage has several distinctive features: the cribbage board used for score keeping, the crib, box, or kitty, a separate hand counting for the dealer, two distinct scoring stages (the play and the show), aces low, and a unique scoring system including points for groups of cards that total fifteen (15).

This Cribbage mobile app lets you play the classic card game Cribage anywhere without needing your wooden Cribbage pegging board. You can play online or even offline. The playing cards are large so Grandpa will have no trouble playing his favorite board game. All the scoring is automatic using the built-in calculator including a breakdown of the point details, so no need for Muggins or Shotgun Cribbage.

Are you ready to skunk your family in one of the most popular card games created in the 17th century? The rules of Cribbage are built in making it easy to learn how to play Cribbage / Cribble.

This app track all your statistic including your hand, crib, pegging average, max, and life time point totals. Never get board with the plethora of achievements to master the perfect hand with a flush, pairs, three of a kind, 15, and super combos. Play at any difficultly: Easy, Medium, Hard, or Crazy Ninja.

This multiplayer game classically plays 2 players in a head to head battle like Speed, Nertz, Canasta, Pinochle, Solitaire Showdown, Backgammon, and Gin Rummy, but only Cribbage is played with a cribbage pegboard.

It’s all in the cards

I only play the computer. The randomness of the cards seems much much better than the other free cribbage app I was using. After playing a few hundred times this past year I’ve decided the hands do not repeat to any annoying degree as was the case on the other app. That said, I still detect a predictability somewhere in this game. In hands where you must make the choice between being conservative/defensive or more daring/hopeful as to cards put into opponent’s crib, being daring plays into what seems (too often) to be a setup for the opponent getting ahead. By saying “setup”, I am imagining there is a bias in the program that punishes risky crib contributions. 5 point crib flush has never happened either for or against, which is unnatural in my estimation, so I’ve learned to ignore the possible outcome from a same suit crib contribution. Conservative solid play is how to get ahead in the stats with this cribbage app. It’s teaching good habits.

Decent game with some flaws

Overall, I like this game as it has a good design and relatively quick pace. A few issues have knocked it down a few stars for me.
1) The game force wait time with ‘Go’. I don’t need to wait a couple seconds for it to happen. Also make it more noticeable on screen.
2) Playing online against people, I never want to play with their chosen board. Some are ok, but others are difficult to see. I’d like an option to only play with the board of my choice for my screen.
3) Card distribution. Over the course of thousands of hands, it will balance out but on a game by game or hand by hand basis, it’s laughable. There’s something off with the array shuffle algorithm or the random seed. Statistically, too many 3/4 of a kind and 5/6 card straights dealt in hands each game to be realistic. Looking at Cribbage hand distribution charts shows it’s just not going to happen every other game like this. The point at which I stopped taking it seriously was playing online and someone had 3 straight 20+ point hands (excluding peg/crib).

Solid Game

My dad taught me this game as a boy and I loved it. I’m sure it was a little to do with being able to spend time with him. 50 years later I still enjoy the game. While there is a luck factor in every dealt hand, it’s a little like blackjack. If you’re able to calculate odds and consistently play the favorite you will win more than you lose. That being said, I’m always surprised when I look at my stats. Grand Master ranked as high as # 4 on the leaderboard at one time-but my winning percentage is only in the high 50’s. This is the best cribbage game out there. Spend a few bucks to remove the ads and this game will truly give you hours of enjoyment. The only flaw is the inability to record/report immature behavior. But you can block players who are vulgar, rude or otherwise don’t know how to be skunked gracefully.
