Welcome!  And thanks for your interest in our cribbage leagues!

We have 2 leagues.  One plays during the Fall/Winter and the other plays Spring/Summer.

Our Summer league plays on Tuesdays at 7:30 PM and starts early/mid May and ends the Tuesday before Labor Day.
Teams of 2 compete against other teams using a fixed schedule playing 5 games.  The cost is $10 per person per week.
Each team compiles points for each win, skunk and double skunk.  The team with the most points wins the league!
All teams recieve a cash prize based on which place they come in.

On the preceeding page you can review the rules of the league, the playing schedule and the prize list
which is determined once the number of teams is determined.

We've always been a friendly league and we do not allow "muggins".
 
Muggins (also known as cut-throat) is a commonly used but optional rule, which means that if a player fails to claim
her or his full score on any turn, the opponent may call out "muggins" and peg any points overlooked by the player.
It causes lots of arguments, slows down play and causes anxiety, especially with beginners.  So, we don't allow it.

We give everyone a copy of the playing schedule and all players phone numbers.  This way folks can arrange
to play ahead to cover for vacations and other committments.  We also allow matches to be made up but with restrictions.

At the end of the season, the Tuesday before Labor Day, we celebrate with pizza from Venus Pizza in Whitman!
That's when we distribute prize money too!
