Format: Paperback
DeLynn Colvert's "Play Winning Cribbage" is the de facto bible of the cribbage-expert world, meaning it's the book universally recommended among those few thousand players who really take the game seriously. Cribbage itself is famously complex, probably the best two-person card game in existence, but bedeviled a bit by its need of a board (for scoring) and the fact that despite learning the basics takes only a few hours, it can take years and years of play to master cribbage's intricacies.

"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.

This is a really great book! I have learned so much, and every time I open it I learn something new. Plus, mine was signed by the author. How cool is that?

I own numerous cribbage books and this one is one of the better ones. Good examples, good strategies, and good explanations. I feel that after reading this book and using some of its tips and tricks I've improved my game. Highly recommended.
