Cribbage is an excellent card game for 2 or 3 persons playing as individuals or for 4 persons playing as partners.


The pack of cards used is a standard pack of 52 cards ranking from King high to Ace low.  The game commences with each player cutting a card from the pack to decide who shall deal first, the dealer being the person who draws the lowest card.  The dealer shuffles the cards prior to each deal, the cards then being cut by the person to dealer’s right.  With two persons, each player is dealt 6 cards, one at a time.
