Details

The only card game that can be legally played for money in English pubs, cribbage evolved from a shipboard game called noddy. It was one of the few games that could be played on the rolling seas, as it used pegs and holes that could be carved directly into a sailor's bunk. A 17th-century British poet made cribbage popular in English courts, where he distributed packs of marked cards to the aristocracy, inevitably beat them out of tidy sums, and managed to gamble his way to a $7 million contribution to King Charles I's army.

Mahogany-stained three-fold case includes cards, pegs, and rule book. Dimensions: 5 1/2"W x 2"H x 3 1/4"D

"Disappointed"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I was under the impression this was made in the country of origin; not so - made in China! Too late to return in time for Christmas. I m embarrassed to even give it.

My son is thrilled to share this nicely done set with his son. It was a great choice for the money and I thank you for offering it. I kind of want to order another one for me.... LOL! .... but we have something of that style.

"Goes great with the necklace."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I have a 6 inch wrist so I had to have four little links removed. That said it looks great. The style is both bold and somehow neutral. The color is amazing and bright. I love how it looks with a black or cream colored boho dress. Great with different blues and greens. The listing and pictures mention a figure eight catch but both my necklace and bracelet came with safety chains instead.

Best Uses

  • Looks beautiful any time both casual and formal
