Scores

 

  • Scores are based on 15s, pairs, runs, and flushes.

 

  • Scoring is as follows:

       Pair = 2 points

       15 = 2 points

       Flush = 5 points

       Run = 1 point / card

          (min of 3 cards in run)

 

  • Scores are counted based on the direction of the player (up/down or left/right).

 

  • Runs, pairs, 15s, and flushes are all counted independently, and the same cards in a row/column can be used to create any combintation thereof.

 

  • Each row or column is counted individually and then all the rows or columns are added up to create the player's final score for the hand.

15s

 

  • 15s are scored when 2 or more cards in the same row or column can be added together to create 15 (i.e. 9 + 6 or 2 + 3 + 10)

 

  • The values for the cards are:

      Ace = 1

      2 = 2

      3 = 3

      4 = 4

      5 = 5

      6 = 6

      7 = 7

      8 = 8

      9 = 9 

     10 = 10

     Jack = 10

     Queen = 10

     King = 10

 

  • Each possible combination of cards is counted as a distinct 15. For example, a 7-7-8 combintation is counted as two 15s, since two 7-8 combinations are possible

Pairs

 

  • Pairs are when two of the same type of card are in the same row or column

Example of Pair in Table Top Cribbage

 

  • Each possible combination of cards is counted as a distinct pair. For example, 3 cards of the same type would be 6 points, since 3 distinct combinations of pairs can be created.

Runs

 

  • Runs are 3 or more consecutive cards in the same row or column

 

  • Order of cards are:

       Ace

       2

       3

       4

       5

       6

       7

       8

       9

       10

       Jack

       Queen 

       King

 

  • Each possible combination of cards is counted as a distinct run. For example, 5-6-6-7 would be counted as two runs since the 5,7 cards can be coupled with each six independently to create two runs.

Flush

 

  • Flushes are when an entire row or column contains cards that are all the same suit. 

 

  • They do not need to be in consecutive order
