Format: Paperback
It's often said that there's a lot of luck in cribbage, and of course there is, but this book demonstrates more than any other I've seen how much skill is involved. And it's completely interactive--and fun. Given the position and your cards, you decide the best play. Then you read the solution and explanation. If this book doesn't improve your game you aren't trying hard enough.

Format: Paperback
If you like to play cribbage, you will remember many times when you were set to take a game, heading down Fourth Street, screaming ahead of your opponent and confident of a win. Then, one hand and you find yourself in the "dead hole" (or as the Brits have it, the "stink hole") and your opponent pegs past you for a win, smiling a superior smile at your folly.

The strategy for discarding to the crib and for pegging changes as you get to the end; winning is everything. Who gets to count first, pegging points become more important. This slim book of quizzes will sharpen your play by giving you a number of hands and asking you choices to make--which card to throw, which to play when and the percentages. While cribbage is a game of chance, you can improve your odds by a few points pegged here and there and by careful strategy at the endgame, which for me is the hardest part of the game. Nice little book, easy to use and gets the job done.

This book is fun, while maintaining a moderate to difficult difficulty.

The "fun" part is important to me because I play cribbage for "fun" and don't care to rack myself over technical analysis. The difficulty part is important to me because I need to start beating my brother-in-law more often.
