Turns out cribbage is actually pretty fun. The game is 400 years old and was invented in a bar (truly, a game for me). Its a pretty easy to learn and it also travels well. We were able to teach ourselves how to play in about twenty minutes by reading the instructions and doing a little online searching (yay us!). If you've never played and you want to start, I recommend reading the included instructions thoroughly and then watching some online tutorials. I liked this one and this one. You can also check out the American Cribbage Conference (yes, there is a conference). The goal is to get as many points as possible on each hand, and you use the board for scoring.
Playing card games has been a nice change of pace from our usual date nights. The other night we played in bed in our pajamas while listening to good music. Then we played a few days later at our church picnic while sipping pink lemonade vodka drinks. Love these special moments.
