Skunk & Funk: Cribbage in the Field

I went to this event last year and it was TERRIFIC!

Cribbage in the Field invites participants of all ages and skill sets to spend a few hours at the Walker playing, teaching, learning, and sharing a Minnesota classic–cribbage! Replicating last year’s highly successful event, cribbage-goers need only show up. Boards and cards will be provided, but players are encouraged to bring their favorite boards or pegs from home to share with others.

As a social game, cribbage encourages community, and the boards are often as beautiful as they are functional. Several custom boards will be featured, as well as a possible giveaway!  Field goers can also expect to learn a few unexpected historical facts about this unique game, from its bizarre history to its unlikely modern applications. See you there!
