I'm going back to bed. I'm going to have to research this. Sounds like you know what you're talking about but I have to find some rules somewhere. When she cut the Jack for me, I took the 2 points then, but when I counted, it sure was a "29 looking" hand then with the Jack and my 4 fives. I figured it didn't matter whether I turned the Jack over, or had it in my hand and turned the 4th five over. Crap...oh, well, I'm going to enjoy it anyway.

Thanks????

Maybe this will help? Cribbage perfect hand or best hand of 29

Well, again, I say.....NUTS! ...Jim, you Turkey You are correct. I thought about this some more and I know you can't count the Jack as a match unless it's in your dealt hand. I was so excited, I didn't want to think about it. So......I accept that it was really a 28 hand..BUT I STILL WON the cottonpickin game.

So, that's OK. I want to do it right. Now, back to the quest for the perfect 29. Oh well.

Gobble, gobble.

I debated with myself whether to post the truth and burst you bubble because I did not want to be mean, or post the truth so folks could know and learn. The OCD in me made me post the truth though.

Congrats on winning the game, sorry for ruining your moment.

Another cribbage point that most folks do wrong. The pone is the person who leads, the player to the left of the dealer. The pone is also supposed to cut the deck, so when playing four handed you are supposed to cut ahead, not behind like most other games. I bet 90% of the people I have played with do it wrong.

Another misconception is that the loser deals first in the next game. The deal continues to rotate into the beginning of a new game. Conceding the game when it is your deal, only if you are over the skunk line and have no hope of winning, is a strategy so that you can have the first crib of the next game.

My grandfather, who I learned from, was a big time tournament player. I used to play tons but have actually played only a few times a year lately. We do play tons of card games though, some board games and dice too.

Oh I love card games

Keith, I don't hear of too many people who play euchre, but I used to love it (still would, but lack a foursome).

I learned it from a friend who grew up near Detroit. He used to tell of men in the auto plants playing some crazy number of hands on a 15-minute break; they could tell after half a hand was played what would happen, and just threw in the cards and started the next hand

Raya

PS: Jim, I'm glad you piped in - it's fun to learn more about the rules and terms like "pone" that I didn't know. Thanks!
