Growing up, my Mom and I would take semi-annual trips up to Iowa to visit my grandparents. Without fail our time with them would consist of watching golf, playing golf, and gathering the whole family (an sometimes the neighbors) for a long evening of cribbage. It’s a relatively simple game once you get some practice in, but the real fun comes in the smack-talk and struggle to count correctly.
Often we refer to the rule book to check a 24 count or when we find ourselves (usually drunkenly) counting a 30 in our hand. But sometimes the rule book isn’t handy, especially now that I’ve moved from my home state of Missouri to Washington, DC. I’ve tried Googling a simple scoring cheat sheet for quick reference, but they’re never clear like the simple rule booklet we have at home.
Last time I was home I took a picture of the scoring page so I could have it on virtual file. Then, when scrolling through Instagram became too much effort, I put it in a simple Google Doc for all the internet to see. It’s not the entire rule book (hmm… maybe I’ll do a design project later) but it does contain basic scoring. I hope it helps those who are also looking for this reference.
