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.

"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.

"Craftsmanship?"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Good looking but the craftsmanship left a lot to be desired. Hinges were not applied precisely--it made the set off center when folded up. Also, there should have been some kind of clasp to keep the set from opening up -- a necessity for a travel item. The set was also heavier than I thought it would be but it is wood so I should have expected that.

"A lot of compliments"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I ordered this cuff just because I thought it was unique and it also just satisfied my need for the unusual that you just can not buy anywhere. Needless to say I get a lot of compliments on it and wear it everyday.
