If you're only going to read one book on cribbage, make it this one. The author has been National Champion four times, is the highest rated tournament player in the history of the American Cribbage Congress, and is widely regarded as the world's best over-the-board player. With a track record like that, his advice warrants close attention.
Despite the endorsement, I must knock off a star due to a number of typographical and grammatical errors. It's not a perfect book, but it's the closest thing we have to it in cribbage...
"Play Winning Cribbage" examines many of those intricacies, including such concepts as the Rule of 26, a board-position stratagem which Colvert popularized on his way to becoming the American Cribbage Congress's all-time awards leader (though some of his records are likely to be surpassed in the next few years).
"Play Winning Cribbage" offers insight into several different areas of cribbage play, from selecting and optimizing hand and crib holdings, to proper pegging strategies, to the advanced board-position concepts mentioned above. The book also includes a simulated game, a summary of basic rules and terms, and even some highlight's from the ACC's newsletter, "Cribbage World", taken from Colvert's tenure as that newsletter's editor.
This book is one of those where Amazon's own rating system is inadequate: It gets five stars here because it is clearly the best cribbage book on the market, despite being hard to obtain. (Any seller of the book on this site is likely a private reseller of the book's recent, fourth-edition reprinting.) It really should be a four-and-a-half-star book, because it does have a few problems, but for what it's designed to do, it's the best there is.
The book's handful of drawbacks are relatively minor.Read more ›
On a final note, this book is listed as the 4th edition, I received the 5th edition and it was signed by Mr. Colvert. No matter what version you get, if your thirst for knowledge is great, you will gain something from this book.
