Handcrafted and ethically sourced Indian rosewood and haldu wood cribbage board game from Matr Boomie.
If you haven't challenged yourself to learn Cribbage yet, this stunning hand carved board is the perfect inspiration to do so. It is a great game that can be played with 2-6 people (not 5) and whilst it may seem a little intimidating at first, once you get the hang of it, you wont look back. The basic game is very easy to learn and play. If you have a cribbage board (or pen and paper) and a deck of cards, you're ready!

Object of Game
The object of the game is to score 121 points which are pegged on the board by points in your hands. Each hand determines how many points you will have.
To play you need at least two people but can have three or four people. Here are some guidelines which will depend on the number of people that are playing:
1. Two people: the dealer deals six cards each (pictured below)
2. Three people: the dealer deals five cards each and then one off to the side (pictured below)
3. Four people: the dealer deals five cards each sitting opposite each other (pictured below)
To determine who deals first, set the full deck of cards in front of everyone and then everyone cuts from the same deck. Whoever selects the lowest card wins the opportunity to deal first. This is very important when it gets to the end of the game... The dealer also changes people every time a new hand is dealt.
The box acts as game board and storage for Cribbage pieces.
Please be aware that this game has small parts.
