Chicago Cribbage is a 2007 title by Outset Media for two to four players. It requires a cribbage board (not provided) and familiarity with the traditional game of cribbage. It comes with its own deck of conventional playing cards plus 28 "Chicago Cards" that modify the game of cribbage. In a sense, Chicago Cribbage can really be thought of as a "cribbage expansion" deck.

[Since Chicago Cribbage is intended for players already familiar with cribbage, I refer to standard cribbage terms and rules without definition in this review.]

*Artwork*
And a rather handsomely printed deck of cards it is, too. The playing cards that come with Chicago Cribbage are designed with a font and art deco style reminiscent of 1920s and 30s Chicago. The face cards and aces feature mob characters and icons representing the period. Overall the game presents a rather nice look and feel just in the conventional deck of cards itself.

*Gameplay*
The real innovation in the game comes in the form of the additional "Chicago cards," which add a new dimension to the familiar game of cribbage. Each player starts with a fixed set of seven Chicago cards, each of which may be used only once in the course of the entire cribbage game. There are two opportunities during a hand of cribbage where a Chicago card can be put into play. The first is immediately after the deal (before players place cards in the crib), at which point any player may play a "Deal Again" card. The second opportunity comes immediately after the cut (when the "starter" card is revealed but before any play starts), at which point a player may play one of any of the other possible Chicago cards - "Cut Again," "Trade Hands," "No Fifteens," or "Reverse Counting.
