Customer Reviews

Great for beginning and experienced players alike

I learned how to play cribbage with this game. It offers hints and automatic scoring so you can learn the mechanics of the game. Then you can turn off auto scoring and count your own points. Careful though! If you count wrong the AI may take your points. Speaking of the AI, it's fairly realistic because it doesn't always catch your mistakes - just like a real human player. There are multiple boards, decks, and pegs to choose from to keep the game visually interesting as well.

Great app for cribbage

Good design and adjustable speed settings to keep the games moving. I wish there were less of the 30 second ads and upgrading to the most difficult level wasn't so expensive. All in all, a great cribbage game.
* Update: for those of you using this app to learn the game, be very weary using the 'recommended play' when choosing which cards to put in the crib, it is often wrong. I recommend using the game to get experience and learn on your own.

So far so good!

Nice that mugging is included! Reminds me of playing cut throat years ago with good friends. It isn't important to me, but beginners might want to try finding a version that has an undo feature. I haven't gotten past the easy stage yet so I'm not sure how truly good the app is yet. It's been a very long time since my Great Grandmother taught me to play (she was a cut throat ace!), and I'm still brushing up and getting mugged at least twice every game. I forgot how much attention to detail this game requires!
