cribbage


Paul and I bought a cribbage board a few weeks ago for simple date night entertainment.  Cribbage sounded like a boring card game to me, but Paul seemed to think it was a good idea so I decided to give it a try. 

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.
