I am an avid cribbage player. I probably play it a few days a week. My dad and mom loved the game and taught me it when I was about 6 years old (as soon as I learned to count). I have been obsessed with it ever since. A week without at least ONE game of cribbage is an anomaly for me. I have taught most of my friends and co-workers how to play this game as well, just because it seems like it's such a huge part of me, I've been doing it since I was literally in elementary school. I think it's fun. A mix of skill and luck, of course. The highest hand I have ever gotten was 24. Although I have seen someone get the best hand possible, which is a 29 point hand. I also enjoy playing Spades (although it can take FOREVER to do a game to 500), Rummy, and I don't mind poker (although I don't understand it 100%). We also have a game, I 'm not sure if my family made it up (I don't think so) - but it's called Pass the Ace, where we play for $1 a round. Have you heard of any of those? Do you play cards? With computers and technology, I feel like it is a dying art. If you do play cards, what's your game of choice?
