For those of you who don't play cribbage this will be gobbledy gook! We play a game every night at bedtime & have done for 10 years, although we've both played it since childhood & have played on & off all our lives. Neither of us have seen the hand come up before. I looked it up & it's one chance in 216,580!!! So here is the photo of the historic occasion
Well, I've done it all now, all boxes ticked! LOL

I'm not a crib player, though I have played many card games, I will say well done.

Congrats Hazel, although I don't play cribbage it must have been amazing to come up with that magical and rare top score hand. You better buy a Euro lottery ticket now LOL Love the pretty cross-stitched cloth, did you do that ? I used to do a lot of various types of craftwork so really appreciate seeing it.

I couldn't get it all in the photo! Had to move the pack to the middle. Should have done though. At least I won! We do 2 up & downs & deal 6 cards & put 2 each in the box . The Pegboard came from New Zealand, a present from a pal about 35 years ago!
Hazy : My mum did it & she died almost 60 years ago, the quality of the cotton/linen in those days was so good it still comes up white!
