The game of cribbage is, of course, very widely
played. It is generally considered to be one of
the best two handed card games, and, although
less widely appreciated, the excellent features of
the game are enhanced by partnership play.

While three handed cribbage is also a most
enjoyable game this form of cribbage is rela
tively infrequently played due to the fact that

will be appreciated that in order to permit the
score to be pegged quickly and accurately, sim
plicity is desirable. It will also be appreciated
that cribbage boards must be of small size so

As each player frequently scores, the use of
three sets of peg holes disposed parallel is im
age.

In Fig. 1, my board is shown folded into a box
with the container 15 in place. If my board is
to be used as a board having the usual scoring
surface, the cover i is opened and as the back 4
is hinged to the bottom 2, the cover I and back

the bottom 2.
My board is inverted into the
position shown in Fig. 3 in which position the

While any suitable hinges may be used, atten
