Editors' review

Championship Cribbage for Windows offers a great way for newcomers to learn to play this classic card game or for experienced players to hone their skills. With challenging play and some helpful hints for novices, players at all skill levels can make great use of this game software.

The program felt pretty comfortable to us right away, since it features only a few command icons and has a professional-looking graphic design. The interface also provides a smart onscreen tutorial that lays out the strategy and rules of this game in a way that users can easily digest. You can choose between five different types of Cribbage. You can also choose your computer opponents based on their skill level. These options and more helped us find a comfort zone. Play elements, such as drawing and discarding cards or managing hands and the crib, were all done with click-and-drag style mouse control, which kept things simple and fast moving. The opponents matched their advertised skills and were never predictable, creating challenging matches. Even though we were novices, we were fully competing within a few minutes. The biggest help to us was the Hint feature, which provided an onscreen tip whenever we got stuck. While the rules took some effort to find, we quickly discovered a game that all skill levels could love.

Championship Cribbage for Windows has a 10-use trial limitation. With simple game play and a challenging array of opponents, we recommend this card game.

    "Playing field too big"

    January 08, 2011   |   By MsAmy34

    Version: Championship Cribbage for Windows 7.30

    Pros

    Liked the use of a real cribbage board

    Cons

    I found the playing field took up the whole screen. Did not like the counting. I also did not like the way the cards were presented at the end of each hand.

    "A great program unless you're using it on a netbook!"

    November 18, 2010   |   By wb8cac

    Version: Championship Cribbage for Windows 7.30

    Pros

    Easy to use, lots of options, good graphics, all in all a good game of cribbage.

    Cons

    Somewhat annoying on my netbook. Due to the way the screen scales down, you can't see what cards are in the crib, so it's impossible to use the feature that lets you count for yourself. You have to let the game count your hand... I need the practice

    Summary

    I've had a older version on my desktop for a long time. It's been great fun and I would suggest it to anyone who likes cribbage. I just bought the latest and greatest version for my netbook and am quite unhappy with not being able to score for myself. On a bigger screen I think that anyone would be completely happy with the program. If It wasn't for the netbook issue, I'd have given it a 5.

    "DON'T SNEEZE, you'll miss it."

    March 08, 2007   |   By urnman68

    Version: Championship Cribbage Pro Card Game for Windows 7

    Pros

    Clean look. Math works. 2 stars because I don't think the program is riddled with spyware and such. If you are familiar with this company, know what to expect from them and you like what they do, then by all means download and buy this.

    Cons

    Free to try = 3 trial games . . . Weak! I want a Cribbage game and I'm willing to pay, but the 3 games rushed by. The music is either on or off. (I think I can change it but it only accepts Midi and something else I don't know.) The user Icon can be customized but you better have an icon 100x100 px. Didn't really see anything else. If you are unsure and want to check these guys out, pay close attention and DON'T SNEEZE, you'll miss it.

    "Another gem in the championship series"

    May 01, 2005   |   By akebono

    Version: Championship Cribbage Pro 6.04

    Pros

    The best cribbage out there: colorfull, with lots of features, very good graphics and plays very well. Love this game a lot and have been playing it for months.

    Cons

    There is nothing wrong with it at all. Well maybe that there arent yet too many people who have this game meaning that it is difficult to play it on line...
