OBJECT OF THE GAME

The object of cribbage is to be the first player to score 121 points. Players earn points by holding or playing certain combinations of cards. Here are some terms you'll hear around a cribbage table:

CRIB: Four cards -- two from each player -- set aside for the dealer to score after the dealer's hand.

HAND: The six cards dealt to each player or the four cards remaining after discarding to the crib.

MUGGINS: The scoring of certain points that one's opponent fails to peg.

PEG: A small marker that fits into the holes of a cribbage board and is used for scoring. Scores are recorded by advancing the rear peg in front of the front peg.

SKUNK: To win by 31 or more points.

DOUBLE SKUNK: To win by 61 or more points.

STINK HOLE: Hole number 120 on the scoring board, one hole short of the gaming hole.
