Place the cards on the 4x4 grid and combine them with the Starter Card to create Cribbage Hands. Aces count as low.
Hover over the score on each row/column after placing all 4 cards to see how that hand was scored.
Each hand can earn points in different ways:
Flushes (4 or 5 points)
A four-card flush using all the cards in a row or column is worth 4 points. An extra point is added if the Starter Card matches the suit of the four-card flush.
Runs (3 - 5 points each)
A run consists of three or more cards with sequential rank. (5-6-7, or 8-9-T). Multiple runs can be made on each hand with cards that share the same rank:
If a hand consists of 3c-4h-5s-5c-6s, there are two runs of four cards each:
3c-4h-5s-6s (4 points)
3c-4h-5c-6s (4 points)
Pairs (2 points each)
Each pair is worth 2 points. Three-of-a-kinds are worth 6 points "Pair Royale". Four-of-a-kinds are worth 12 points "Double Pair Royale". These scores are based on how many individual pairs each hand contains.
If a hand consists of 3s-5c-8h-8c-8s, there are three pairs:
8h-8c, 8h-8s, & 8c-8s (Total 6 points)
Fifteens (2 points each)
Each combination of cards that adds up to fifteen is worth 2 points.
If a hand consists of 2c-3h-7s-Qs-Ks, there are two combinations that add up to fifteen:
2c-3h-Qs & 2c-3h-Ks (Total 4 points)
Jack In Nobs (1 points)
A Jack in the hand that matches the suit of the Starter Card.
Jack In Heels (2 points)
A Jack in the Starter Card.
