Looking to buy a Cribbage board? On this page our Editor gives his picks for the best places to buy a Cribbage board online.
Although it is possible to keep score in Cribbage with a pencil and paper, it’s much more convenient and fun to use a Cribbage board. What’s more, a Cribbage board is inexpensive. A basic board costs less than ten dollars.
The cheapest place to buy a board is often your local dollar store. In Canada we call them “Loonie stores”, named for our dollar coin.
Of course, there are many online stores that sell boards too. My favorite places to buy a board online are eBay and Amazon.
The thing I like about eBay is that not only you can you find a wide selection of inexpensive boards from local and global sellers, but also vintage boards and unique boards in creative shapes, crafted from non-standard materials like aluminum, leather or mahogany.
Amazon sells modern Cribbage boards, pegs and supplies at good prices.
Making Your Own Cribbage Board
If you are the kind of person who likes to make things out of wood or metal, it’s very easy to make your own Cribbage board. You can simply copy the template of an existing board, or search for predesigned templates on Google. Generally you need a drill press to get a good result. There are a lot of holes to drill and using a hand drill leaves crooked, unappealing rows of holes.
