Cribbage Solitaire

Cribbage Solitaire

1 Mix the cribbage deck up (9’s and up).

2 Put down six cards in front of you face up (showing).

3 Lay the rest of the pile face down (not showing).

4 Decide two cards to discard based on all the cribbage possibilities (below).

5 When you’re done discarding, turn over one from the face-down deck.

6 If it’s a jack, you get one point.

7 The rest of the hand is counted as per normal.

Scoring During Play

· 1 Score two and say "fifteen two" if you play a card that brings the total to 15 (8+7, 9+6, etc).

· 2 Score two if you play cards that bring the total to 31, or 1 for a ‘go’.

3 Score two for a pair (3,3)
4 Score six for a pair royal if you play a third card that is the same rank as the preceding two cards (Q,Q,Q).

· 5 Score 12 for a pair royal if you play a fourth card that is the same rank as the preceding three cards (5,5,5,5).

· 6 Score for a run if you play the last card in the run (9,10, J).

The Show

· 1 Score for all possible combinations of cards.

· 2 Score two points for any combination adding up to 15 (K,Q,5,5 = 8 points).

· 3 Score two points if you have a pair, six points if you have three of a kind, and 12 points if you have four of a kind.

· 4 Score three for a run of three cards in consecutive order, regardless of suit (any 8,9,10).

· 5 Score four points if you have a flush or a hand in which all the cards are the same suit.

· 6 Score five points if you have a flush and the start card (the card turned up) was the same suit.

· 7 Score one point ("one for your knob", or ‘His Nibbs’) if you have a jack in your hand that is the same suit as the start card.

· 8 Win the game when you score 121 points or more.
