The game of cribbage is a wonderfully interactive card game that is traditionally scored using a wooden board and pegs. The game originated in England over 400 years ago and although it has seen a few transitions through the years it is still the same card game.
The first cribbage boards were hand made and one of a kind, many times simply made from polished blocks of wood.
The popularity of cribbage escalated very quickly and cribbage boards have been manufactured for resale for almost as long as the game has been in existence, even before today’s world of mass marketing and mass production.
If you are an avid player, someone who remembers the game from childhood, or simply want to give it a go- The Fat Cat Cribbage Board is a good example of a well made inexpensive cribbage board (usually under $10.00) that can be delivered to your front door in a matter of days.

This is by far one of the coolest cribbage boards I have ever encountered. It is shiny, heavy, and beautiful. I purchased this for my brother as a Christmas gift and had the luxury of playing one game on it. The felt pads prevented any scratches to the table and the sheer weight kept the board from moving around during play. The only complaint I have about the board, is something that would have required additional machining, therefore driving the price up, but a internal area for the pegs would have been nice. Or another idea could be to package with a case that holds both cards and pegs. Regardless, for your money you get a truly gorgeous board that is both functional and unique.
I have been through many cribbage boards in the past 55 years.
This one by far is the best. The craftmanship is suburb both in
the machining and etching. This one will last a lifetime.
