Wooden Cribbage Board
Cribbage is a card game in which a pegged board is used to keep track
of the scores that accumulate rapidly during play. The origin of cribbage
comes from another card game, "Noddy," that was prominent during the 16th
century. Noddy is a much simpler card game which doesn't use a crib and
consists of a three card hand. The origin of cribbage is credited to an
Englishman in the 17th century, Sir John Suckling, who was well-known
for his gaming skills. This early form of cribbage only used five cards
and the crib consisted of one card from each player. Cribbage game changed
little until the 19th century when the cribbage hand changed to six cards
and the crib was increases to two cards. This style of cribbage is still
currently used today.
