cribbage is a card game either between 2 or 4 players (singles or Pairs . the aim is to score 15 or 31 by careful card playing . you are dealt 6 cards in singles , and 5 cards in pairs . one player has a box . the box is scored seperately from the hand , points are obtained from runs, suits and the ability to make 15's. oh and 1 for his knob

the Knob is what ever you want it to be , just terminology for scoring if you have the jack that is the same suite as the card that is turned over at the start of a game , you get one point for this , if you turn a Jack over at the strt of the game you get 2 points , as clear as mud I suppose to the un-knowing . play crib in the Havant crib league , do any of you.

if you had 1 six and 3 three's you would be one card short, you have not stated what your spare card would have been. Other people may say 8 which would be correct, however wrong as you have not taken into account the scoring the spare card would have made to your hand, if for example the spare was another 6, your score would be 12, see table below

Ace + 3 3 3 6 = 8
2 + 3 3 3 6 = 8
3 + 3 3 3 6 = 24
4 + 3 3 3 6 = 8
5 + 3 3 3 6 = 8
6 + 3 3 3 6 = 12
7 + 3 3 3 6 = 8
8 + 3 3 3 6 = 8
9 + 3 3 3 6 = 14
10 + 3 3 3 6 = 8
J + 3 3 3 6 = 8
Q + 3 3 3 6 = 8
K + 3 3 3 6 = 8

Hope this has made it a bit clearer for you

Regards

And to reply to a question asked in December 2002 [I did'nt see it at the time, honest smiley - blush], yep I do have some other hobbies... Unfortunately I have less free time now than I had then...smiley - cry
So the list has now been drastically reduced...smiley - wah

Apart from visiting h2g2 [of course smiley - winkeye], I still like reading and writing stuff [mainly SF]... I used to collect comic books related items but this activity is on stand by at the moment...smiley - sadface

I will refresh my memory by reading the Entry again...

smiley - cheers everyone...smiley - bubbly

Some of the totals for given cuts are inaccurate

3 + 3+3+3+6 = 20
6 + 3+3+3+6 = 18
9 + 3+3+3+6 = 16
