Cribbage Boards

Not much of a game in themselves, but essential for scoring numerous pub games where a chalk score board is not appropriate. Most commonly associated with Cribbage and other Card Games, and Dominoes. The frequency with which these old boards appear everywhere from charity shops to antique centres is a clear indication of the decline of pub games in general.

Most Crib Boards have a small compartment for the four or more pegs needed for use, but this one has been adapted to house three old pennies and five ha'pennies for  games of Shove Ha'penny and Pushpenny.
