Hopefully you had a chance to visit PCHlotto during the day, but then you have to make sure you come back at night to play your Twilight Cards! PCHlotto Twilight gives you a second chance to win with all new lotto cards.

If you’re looking to pass the time before going to bed, PCHgames  is a great way to do it. There are always special events going on where you can earn extra tokens or special prizes. The tournaments in particular are always fun.

PCH PRO TIP: If you don’t want to miss any of the PCHgames events and opportunities to win, you can add the event to your Facebook page and receive an event reminder!

Lastly, I recommend taking a spin at PCHslots or visiting PCHblackjack  (or both of course!). There’s nothing better than being able to bring the casino right to you!

Introducing the Newest game on PCHgames: Cribbage!

PCH Cribbage

Hey there, PCHgamers! Some of you may have noticed our newest card game Cribbage on PCHgames. The game is super fun, but it could be a bit challenging for new players, so we wanted to put together the ULTIMATE Beginner’s Guide to help you all along. Read on and up your game!

The first thing to know is that there are 2 roles you will play during Cribbage – the Dealer and the Pone. When you’re the Dealer, you get to score an extra hand (called the “Crib”) made up of 2 cards from your hand and two from your opponent’s.  When you’re the Pone, it’s your opponent’s turn to score more. Here’s a big hint: Never put matching cards, cards that add up to 15, or two sequential cards into the crib when you are the Pone. Most of your points will be scored during this part of the game, so it’s very important to put the right cards in the crib.

How to Play Cribbage

Figure 1: Dealer. We will put the 3 and 8 into the crib, because Ace-Four-Ten and Ace-Four-King can both be counted as a ’15’.

Figure 2: Pone. Here, we give our opponent the 9 and the Jack. Although there's a 1 in 4 chance our opponent gets one peg for the Jack, we're sure to get points for 2 sets of pairs.

Figure 2: Pone. Here, we give our opponent the 9 and the Jack. Although there’s a 1 in 4 chance our opponent gets one peg for the Jack, we’re sure to get points for 2 sets of pairs.

Now the goal of the game is to reach 31 without going over. While you play, you may notice that the pegs jump to show huge distances sometimes, and tiny increments at other times. Wondering why that is? Your score is actually represented by whichever peg is furthest along the track. When you score points, the back peg is counted with the correct number of spaces, and then becomes the front peg. Better moves (or scoring multiple ways at once) show a more impressive, expansive gap.

Want to know how to score the most points? Here’s a list of all the moves that will score you points. This is called “pegging”.

  • ‘Go’ (opponent can’t play anymore) = 1 peg
  • Reaching 15 = 2 pegs
  • Reaching 31 = 2 pegs
  • Pair = 2 pegs
  • Run (sequence of 3 cards) = 3 pegs
  • 4 card run = 4 pegs
  • 5 card run = 5 pegs
  • Triplet = 6 pegs
  • Four of a kind = 12 pegs

But that’s not the only way to score points! The following moves will score you points when the hands are counted.

  • Run = 1 peg per card (minimum 3 pegs)
  • “His Nobs” (This is the jack that matches suit with the card flipped from the deck) = 1 peg
  • Any combination of 15 = 2 pegs for each possible combination
  • Pair = 2 pegs for each possible pair
  • Flush (all 4 cards in the same suit) = 4 pegs
  • Flush (all 4 cards in the same suit as the first card flipped from the deck) = 5 pegs
  • Triplet = 6 pegs
  • 4 of a Kind = 12 pegs

10 is the most common valued card your opponent will have. Here’s another big tip: Try not to start play with a 5 because of this.

Figure 3: Scoring the hands and the crib.

Figure 3: Scoring the hands and the crib.

Knowing that Cribbage can sometimes be difficult for beginners, we’ve set the token scores to be forgiving. So don’t let the challenge discourage you, because most players should still be able to earn tokens even if they are defeated. And with practice (and some of these helpful tips!), you’re sure to only get better and better. So c’mon give it a try today, if you haven’t already and be sure to tell your friends and fellow gamers about it too!

As always, good luck and happy gaming!
