It's a race around a board that takes luck and skill--and if you're hoping to reach the "finish line" first, here are the rules, the skill-building quizzes, and the cleverest tactics needed to win. If you've never played before, you'll get an explanation of the game's basics and scoring--who goes first, dealing and discarding the cards, and moving the pegs, all with expert tips to put beginners on the right track from the start. The detailed coverage focuses on such topics as what to do when the cut is irrelevant (when the dealer will lose if he doesn't peg out); strategies in the play of the hand; ways to speed up the game; and almost any potential situation you'll encounter. And, for those who already play, there's some advanced advice to take you to the next level, plus information on the American Cribbage Congress, which runs tournaments and clubs.
