Cribbage Craze is the ultimate iPhone cribbage game for advanced players who care about their stats. It's been built from the ground up to track all of your critical game data while you play. Cribbage Craze records gameplay, pegging, and breaks down your points (hand, peg, crib, cut), and then offers you a History screen to review it all. There's nothing else out there for the iPhone like it!
How would you use this data? It's a great way to tell if you're pegging well, if your discard strategy is working, or just to give you bragging rights on your lifetime win-loss ratio against friends. How could you possibly track all of this information on your own?
Cribbage Craze is the only cribbage offering with ALL of the following:
* Sophisticated in-game statistics such as Cut Help (how much the Cut card has helped both players) and Score Composition (how many points came from Hand, Crib, and Pegging)!
* Game summary statistics (tons including Wins, Losses, Best Hand, Average Peg) which can be filtered to see how you fare against specific players!
* Ability to review your history of games played earlier...play by play!
Cribbage Craze also has:
* Integration with Game Center so you can play online
* Bluetooth support for local multiplayer games (e.g. car rides or the airplane)
* Different game types (such as a Half Game or Low Cribbage)
* Customizable options for the table, cards, and pegs
Give it a shot (it's free after all) and let us know what you think!
What's New in Version 1.6
Sorry for the extreme delay in getting a release out! As it turns out, twins take a signficant amount of free development time away.
This is a maintenance release to catch back up to the latest iOS version. A few bugs have been fixed, but the problem that some people are experiencing with the history screen may still be present after this upgrade. Please bear with us, after upgrading there will be a lot more error handling and information to get to the bottom of the issue!
In the meantime, hope you're still enjoying the game. Happy Holidays!

History only good thing
It is extremely weighted toward huge hands. Played 100 games to get a feel for it, continually generates outrageous runs and cuts into double runs far to many times. I've been playing competitive cribbage over 40 years and can tell you this is NOT realistic cribbage. Fix this aspect of it and this will be a very good simulation, until then if you enjoy 12-16 hands on a continuous basis, this is for you.
Follow Up: Played the Easy opponent for 10 games, skunked it 9 times. Received ridiculous hands and cuts similar to what the "Hard" AI was getting against me. In short the AI is horrid. Want my money back and will only get this app again IF they change this horrid, weighted AI in the future to ALL random cards. Give me a break. Have yet to see a decent AI in any of the cribbage apps, do like the history in this one and that's it!
Good App to learn Cribbage
This app has been fun and was very helpful to learn cribbage. However, as I got better I see that it is far from fair. I agree with earlier reviewer that the cards are often stacked against the player. Unbelievable successive hands were had continuously by the computer. I suggest that it uses a true random generator to pick remaining cards from a single deck.
Not so good.
I have been playing for a long time and I am frustrated. Rarely get a cut while brainy gets 10-24 count hands much of the time. Also don't put good cards in crib as you will be burned almost every time!
