A regulation cribbage board has 120 holes. The holes are laid out in four rows of 30 holes each. The holes are marked off in groups of five, and each player gets two rows. Traditionally, the players make two trips up and down the board during the game.
Cribbage is traditionally played with two players, but there are variations with three or four players. The game uses a deck of 52 cards. Each of the players has two pegs that are placed on the board. The pegs start at the end of the board and are used to mark the players' scores during the game.
