Full Screen Crib Board

I'm excited to announce a new release today (2016.15) that now draws a crib-board that will fill the entire height of your screen taking full advantage of your device resolution.

This improvement is especially noticeable on newer devices with high resolution retina style displays. The higher your resolution the better the board will look.

Saved Scores

Just released an update (2016.14) that now saves your scores so you can continue a game at a later time (on the same device).

Saving your score is automatic, you don't have to press any buttons. Your scores are saved locally on your device (nothing is saved to the "cloud") and restored when you revisit the game later or when you select refresh in your browser (use this trick to deal a new hand if you don't like the cards you were dealt).

Note that your scores are only saved after you complete a hand (when both player's hands and the crib have been counted). If you stop the game or close the web page before completing a hand your saved scores will not be updated.

You are a Winner

This release (2016.12) fixes a couple of issues when a player wins a game. Now when a player reaches 121 points they / you will announce "... I WIN!"

After that any tap on the table area will ask if you want to close the game. If you respond Yes or Okay then you will be taken to the menu page where you can start a new game. You can respond No or Cancel if you want to spend a little more time reviewing the cards on the table.

It's a small fix for now but an important one for later.

The Rules of Cribbage

Just came across this web site from the Bicycle Playing Card company that clearly and succinctly explains the rules of Cribbage.

I get many emails from users claiming that Quick Cribbage isn't scoring correctly. In all but one recent case it was a misunderstanding of the official rules of Cribbage. Quick Cribbage has been available in multiple forms for the last 30 years and has been well tested. Whether you're a beginner or long time Cribbage fan it always helps to review the official rules.

If you truly believe you have uncovered a scoring anomaly then please attach a screen-capture that shows the error with your feedback. That helps me a lot.

New Table Layout

Just released an update (2016.7) that implements a slightly modified layout.

Quick Cribbage 2016.7
Now your hand and played cards are centered on the tabletop. The crib and starter card are placed at the left edge. This layout is more natural, as if you were holding your hand in front of you, and works out better in portrait mode and on smaller devices (tablets and smartphones).
