Take Cribbage and Scrabble, shake well, and you will have Kings Cribbage. The tiles correspond to a standard deck of cards except that there are only two suits (dark brown and light brown). You place the tiles on the board a la Scrabble and try to form the highest Cribbage hand possible. All tiles that are placed must score. Scores are as standard Cribbage for the most part and as in Scrabble you may score in multiple rows and or columns at the same time. No more then 5 tiles may be placed consecutively.

Love this game. A challenge for 2 or 3 or 4 persons. It's hard to find a game that is an ongoing challenge for 2 people but this is that game. AND you don't have to be able to play crib to play this game. Just know how to add to 15. Recognize a sequence 1-2-3. Recognize pairs etc. recommended for everybody. The game itself is well made. The playing surface has raised edges so that the scrabble sized tiles don't move around. The directions are easy to understand and the game itself lends itself to strategic play as well as straightforward play. Recommended.

My family loves this game. My brother has two sets--one for the cabin where there is always a game going whenever there is a lull in the outdoor activities.
I have bought two for gifts and have recommended to two friends who have bought the game. I used Well.ca for the first time last month and was totally impressed with their service. Price and promptness of delivery were great.
