Creative Counting in Cribbage

By Eilene Lyon

“Aren’t you going to count your pairs?”

“Oh yes. Pair, two. Pair, four (cupping breasts), plus a pair of legs, a pair of arms, a pair of ears…”

“I don’t think you can peg points for those.”


[Neck-and-neck at the finish line – player drops a queen]

“Seventeen”

“Ohhhhnnnnggg!”

“What was that – an acid flashback? Did you have all the queens?”

“I used to have one.”


“No runs.”

“Sometimes it’s good not to have the runs.”

“Depends.”
