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.
