The Conclusion



CRIBBAGE, OR CRIB AS IT is sometimes known as, is a card game, traditionally for two players, but can also be played by three, four or more. It involves playing and grouping cards in combinations which will score points. It uses a distinct board to keep track of the score, has two scoring phases and a unique scoring system, which gives points for cards which total fifteen, for pairs, triples, runs and flushes.


I will not love one minute more, I swear!

No, not a minute! Not a sigh or tear

Thou gett’st from me, or one kind look again,

Though thou shouldst court me to’t, and wouldst begin.

I will not think of thee but as men do

Of debts and sins; and then I’ll curse thee too.

For thy sake woman shall be now to me

Less welcome than at midnight ghosts shall be.

I’ll hate so perfectly that it shall be

Treason to love that man that loves a she.

Nay, I will hate the very good, I swear,

That’s in thy sex, because it doth lie there, -

Their very virtue, grace, discourse, and wit,

And all for thee! What, wilt thou love me yet?

Love turned to hatred, by John Suckling

Cribbage was invented in the 1630s by Sir John Suckling, a poet. He was also a famous courtier and gambler. His invention was an alteration of an earlier game, named noddy. The main alteration was the invention of the crib. Cribbage became popular with sailors and was a popular pastime in the navy during the second world war. It became especially popular among American submarines patrolling for Japanese ships.
