I'm so excited. Shirley and I were playing Cribbage, out on the deck
last evening, and I got a 29!!!!! It really does happen.

I dealt, and of course the little one accused me of cheating....:-) I dealt
myself (4) 5's, a Queen and a King. I discarded the K & Q and she cut me a
Jack. WOW!! 29 points. life is good.

I know some people play Cribbage their entire lives and never hit a 29. I never believed it could happen to me.

Just had to tell you all. Gifts (cash, preferably), of congratulaions will be accepted.

Keith

Keith,



Congratulations! 19 is more my style... though there has been one 29 in 46 years of play.

I am going to buy Lotto tickets for sure. And, I are getting to be a Old Folk in years, but not in spirit. We love to play Euchre but it's not a good 2 person game. And since no one loves us (I'm going out to eat some worms in a minute) we needed a game we could play when it's just us 2. We learned to play Crib while down at "Geezerville" / Good Life RV Resort and it fits the bill. We really enjoy the game.

Later.

Way to go! My dad has hit 29 a couple times, but I haven't yet after playing for 45 years.

Now for the rest of the story. You got 29 in one hand, but who won the whole game?

I really hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you got a 28 point hand. You need to hold the jack of the 5 turned over with the cut to get nibs, bringing the hand up to 29.

The 2 points you get for turning the jack are pegging points, and do not count towards the hand (besides, that would be 30 )

But still, 28 is great. I have played a ton of cribbage over the years and that is the best I ever got, and only once. I did deal someone else a 29 once.

Man, now I feel like the Grinch who stole Christmas.

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????
