    Having just learned how to play cribbage, I had to google what the difference was between that and cross cribb. I had trouble with the game when it was only two players so I’m a little worried it might be more frustrating with five or six. It seems more fast paced and has the possibility of being that much more fun, though. Maybe I’ll give it a shot.

      Olivia, love your blog post:

      Familiar story that I’ve heard from numerous people after their first attempt to play cribbage. The most difficult part of cribbage is learning how to score and count hands. Once you have that down you will be able to enjoy cribbage and CrossCribb alike.

      CrossCribb is a game that is based off the cribbage scoring method. The nice thing about CrossCribb is that all hands are played open faced on the playing board. This is helpful when learning the game as an experienced opponent can help explain each move the both of you make while you are playing.

      If your serious about attempting to learn cribbage or CrossCribb you may want to visit http://www.ecribbage.com where they have a great community of avid cribbage players online. Here you can practice against a computer opponent or play someone live over the Internet while having a chat with your opponent about strategy, etc.

      If you would like me to teach you how to play CrossCribb I’d be happy to do so online. Just let me know.

      Best regards,

      Tony
