Whether you're a cribbage newbie or a hard-core player who throws around jargon such as "pips" and "His Nobs," you'll enjoy this fun app. Pick from among 50 avatars and customized colors and cards, then test your skills against the computer at three different levels of difficulty.
If you need a refresher on the rules, the Help section gives you the lowdown. Cut the cards to determine who deals first and dive right in. Evaluate your hand and select two cards for your crib (or your opponent's crib, depending on who dealt). Then cut for the starter card and play to 31 (pegging, in the vernacular). Each player counts up the points in their hand (and the crib, if necessary). The app gives your score numerically and displays a virtual cribbage board for a realistic touch.
Up for a Challenge?
Select your difficulty level. At the beginning and intermediate levels, your automated opponent will not always make the best play; go with the advanced mode and it shows no mercy. If you need a little help you can turn on the Hint feature, which gives you tips on how to earn more points and develop your strategic skills.
