Cribbage is a noble card game played in pubs and other dives worldwide, and the players are called "peggers" from the method of scoring point by moving a wooden peg on the cribbage board.
Many of the cheats are ingenious ways of taking unto oneself more peg point than one is entitled to; my favorite--peg three or four MORE than you have scored. When your observant opponent says "You've pegged too many, go back one" you do so with pleasure. Ah, that's funny.
The problem with this book is that you can't give it as a gift to anyone else, and in fact, you probably should hide it under your bed. No, make that somewhere your spouse won't ever go. Because if she or he plays cribbage with you and sees this...
Very funny stuff, would work in any bar (except with experienced peggers who will clobber you, I'm sure, unmercifully if you do this.)
"I grant him bloody,
Luxurious, avaricious, false, deceitful,
Sudden, malicious, smacking of every sin
That has a name. "

This is a reach. I thought that reading it might prepare me for opponents that do cheat but this is petty ridiculous. My wife appreciated the quotes from Shakespeare.Published 5 months ago by Rick
It was a gift and was welcomed with laughter.
My friend then showed it to others and they liked the humor in it too.
