Three-player: The simplest way is for all 3 players to have their own game and use three tracks (deal 5 cards to each player and an additional single card to the kitty). Much more fun is to have two people team up against one (who is called "the captain"). The team of 2 players plays on a single track, and the captain plays on another track. The captain deals first (and gets the first kitty), each person gets *5* cards, not 6, and the captain deals an additional single card into the kitty. The captain only has to reach 60 points (half-way around the board), while the other 2 players, who team up against the captain, have to get all the way around the board, or 120 points. Teaming up in cribbage allows players to set one another up for 15s and runs for increased pegging, which the captain gets an advantage by getting the first kitty.
Four-player cribbage: Each player gets only 5 cards, choosing one to put in the kitty. The 4 players can either play on their own tracks, competing alone, or they can partner, competing in teams.
This board lets you do ALL these variations, and also has spaces to mark games won, as well as games where you "skunked" the opponents (i.e. they were nowhere near the finish line when you crossed it).
My parents taught my brothers and I Cribbage, Pinochle, 500, Hearts and other card games before we were 10. 30 years later, we are still playing them together! I am buying this new 4-track board for my family, knowing that it once it is opened on Christmas morning that the roast will burn, the phone will go unanswered, the TV will stay off, and we will sit and laugh and talk and skunk each other for hours.
Cribbage is a great game, played with a standard deck of cards and although it's got lots of strategy and thinking, it's simple enough that most 8 to 10 year olds should be able to pick it up with a patient teacher.
This is a two player game, so it's not for parties or family game night, but it's a really good game and lots of fun.

I ordered two of these because the design has been discontinued. They must be factory seconds as the drilled holes had errors in spacing and alignment on both board. Read morePublished on November 8, 2010 by W. Crouch
