Alternate Names: Cross Cribb

Description:

CrossCribb is the exciting strategy game that takes the traditional favorite, Cribbage, and multiplies the fun times five. CrossCribb uses conventional Cribbage scoring rules, but the similarities end there as you try to build five high scoring cribbage hands while trying to sabotage your opponents' hands. It's easy to learn, but difficult to master. It's CrossCribb !

Build your hands across the rows, criss-crossing cards with those of your opponent who is building hands in the columns perpendicular to your rows.

One card at a time, the importance of placement, strategy and luck magnifies as the hands take shape. Do you go for points, or play defense? It's high-scoring, fast-paced action as you try to outwit your opponents and work with your teammates.

But watch out! Fortunes change at the turn of a card in CrossCribb !

Whether you're an experienced Cribbage player or new to the game, you'll find CrossCribb is an easy but challenging twist on an old favorite that's positively addicting!
