A plastic cribbage board like no other, Crib Wars has 363 holes from start to finish instead of the usual 121. Along the twisting track are slide-aheads, reverse loops, shortcuts and setbacks that the players must follow if they land on certain spaces via play, hand or crib count. Use strategy to avoid the traps and utilize the advances. Crib Wars takes a lot longer to play than cribbage so beware, the official rules forbid you to quit!
- Fun cribbage variation
- For 2-6 players
- Fun family game

This is such an odd way to play Cribbage! If you have someone that you play crib with a lot, and want to change things up, you should pick up this game!Best enjoyed with a drink or three. 🙂

The game is a lot of fun. Far more interesting than “regular” Cribbage.The quality despite some reviews here seems to be just fine. The holes were all drilled out, the markings clear and the rules clearly laid out.My only gripe is that the price seems a little high for actual content. We still enjoy it though.
I love cribbage but with the classic game, when you’re ahead early in the game, you know you’re going to win no matter what and it gets old really fast. With Cribbage Wars, it doesn’t matter if you’re ahead or not, you have to play strategically when you get close to some areas so it no longer matters what cards you draw, it matters how you play them.I like that it’s made of plastic, it’s very light and easy to store. Some holes require that you push the pegs in with force the first time but it’s not a big deal.You can still play a quick classic game with this board if you wish, the first 121 holes are marked accordingly.

Fun game, its long – which is what I wanted.Pretty easy to understand but lots of reading and instructions.Downfall is there is no box, so the card for instructions is just there… nowhere to keep it. It is one big square board, wish it was foldable or something for smaller storage.

This game arrived in good time, and is as presented. It is a much longer game of crib, giving all players equal opportunity to ‘pass’ another. I was only disappointed that the ‘pegs’ easily fall out of the blue swinging door on the top. Instead I followed the shipping example, and keep them in the small ziploc bag taped to the back of the game.
