New 9 Game GrassRoots Traditional Cribbage Tournament Rules:

In this style, everybody plays 9 games against 9 different random opponents regardless of win or lose. The top 3 players after the 9 game round robin win the trophies.

After the tournament is seeded, everybody will have a scorecard where they can see their 9 opponents. The opponents MUST be played in order on the card. You can click Tournaments / View ScoreCard to see your scorecard.

The scorecard will be AUTO-POPULATED by the program after every game. A win is 2 points, a skunk is 3 points.

There is also a graphical view of who is playing who. Click Tournaments / View Game Tables, this is another way to see the current matchups. The players on the left side of the table just stay where they are the whole tournament. Only the ones on the right move up. If your next table is currently occupied, you will have to wait until that game is complete before playing.

These tournaments are very important that a player doesn't quit before they play their 9 games. If they do they will be docked 50 ratings points for quitting before finishing.

Standard eCribbage Tournament Format

Tournaments are now held daily at eCribbage.com
When you login to the site, click the tournaments button to see all upcoming tournaments!

Each tournament will have up to 48 spots available. For team tournaments, there are 2 players per team so that will be 96 players.

To sign up for a future tournament and reserve your spot, click Tournaments / Future Tournaments / the tournament you are interested in, and click Reserve Spot for Later. This will put you at the top of the list. You still need to check in 30 mins before the tournament starts in order to verify your spot. To do this click Tournaments / Check in Now. If you do not check in, you may lose your spot to players that are there and checking in. Players attempting to sign up for the tournament at the last second may do so, but aren't guaranteed to get a spot. The program will automatically seed the brackets 5 minutes before the start of the tournament. The seeds are based on ratings of that type of tournament.

Each round will last approximately 45 mins and most tournaments are best of 3 series. (First person to win 2 games wins the round) Skunks and double skunks in these tournaments are only worth 1 win.
It is a single elimination tournament, so once you've lost one round, you are out.
Other players are allowed to watch your games but their chat will be disabled so they can't distract you.
If there are technical problems in the game, it is up to the discretion of the tournament director on
how to proceed, a single game may be played over again in the case of a serious malfunction.

If you plan to make it far in the tournament please allow 3 hours available to play.
If you have to leave and miss your round, you will forfeit and be eliminated from the tournament.

To start your match:
Find out who you are playing by clicking the results/bracket button under tournaments in the lounge.
Click Tournaments / Start Tournament Match

The tournament director will be available throughout the tournament to help you setup matches,
record results, and any other questions you may have..

Good luck and sign up ASAP! (PLEASE only sign up if you are actually going to show up)


"The administrator has done a superb job of providing us with this wonderful online site. It is the best site for cribbage I have found. I love the opportunity to play muggins (cut throat). I have never played on a site that allows you to do that.

The Joker Cribbage is an unusual twist and very fun. This is also the first experience I have had with Kings Cribbage. It is like a combination of scrabble & cribbage and a very challenging game.

eCribbage.com also allows you to play 3 & 4 hand in addition to the traditional 2 hand and private or public games. There are tournaments as well. The administrator is very innovative and continuously upgrading and improving the site." - Karri C from Lakeworth, FL

"Welcome home! should be on the sign-in page for eCribbage.com because it indeed feels like a second home. The friendliness and fellowship can't be matched on any other gaming site. The attentiveness to the user's needs is met and exceeded by the administrator each and every day.

Having the developer as a fellow player (a much better player compared to me) is invaluable. The variety of cribbage games and player skill levels is surprisingly wide and keeps each and every visit both unique and exciting.

I came, I saw, I came back... again and again and again... - MouseNut

For all crib lovers, this is an absolutely amazing site to play on and it is quite apparent the love that the administrator has for the game. The site started with Kings Cribbage, which, as a board game, was until recently only very readily available in America and Canada, but through the sites promotions, it is becoming more well known worldwide. And what a game it is to play, particularly on line, within a very friendly community that play all the hours of the day and night!

The administrator has developed various versions of ordinary crib too, which are also great fun to play, plus all versions accommodate from two to four players too. He has even run several competitions, which have been a great community booster as well as being good to participate in. I have not found anything as theraputic and enjoyably time consuming as this since playing all night Atari sessions twenty-five years ago!! - Colin Sharpe from UK

"My 9 year old discovered ecribbage.com one day and we have been hooked ever since! The other players are very nice and weloming, and the games are always fun. I love trying out the new versions of the game that the administrator puts out (back up 10, cribbage with jokers, etc.), but I had never played King's Cribbage before and I LOVE IT!

Each game also has many different options, like rated or unrated, and there are wonderful features that sort your cards and tell you who is pegging better. Like many people on the site, I grew up playing cribbage with my family, but now we never get a chance to play since we are scattered in different locations. We love playing together on ecribbage and you will too!" - Sarah McKenzie from Prairie Grove, AR

eCribbage has become a must play for me since the first time i came across it. I received the Kings Cribbage board game for Christmas in 2006, and was thrilled when a friend told me of this website for on-line games! I have seen eCrbbage grow from a one game site to the multi-game site it has become and I am excited to see what is coming next. eCribbage continues to grow with user interest and is fast becoming an all inclusive site for any variant of cribbage that a player could want, see, or even think of.

The most important thing though is that the site has not lost an ounce of it's community feeling, of it's warmth and friendly culture. I have been to other gaming sites that are cold and stark. eCribbage is very friendly, not just the players, but the administrators as well. I continually see experienced players huddled in a room, helping out a new player. This is genuinely unique to eCribbage.

The players are talented as well, There is no shortage of top-flight players in every game and genre you choose. I know eCribbage received a tremendous boost from many members of the American Cribbage Congress joining as members. They play a great game and are equally as approachable as anyone else. Often sharing strategies, and tips in the traditional cribbage format.

One of the many things that sets eCribbage apart from other sites is the graphics. Absolutely dazzling graphics that enhance, not distract from, the experience. The graphics really add another level of fun to the games.

I visit eCribbage nearly everyday and enjoy it immensely. I look forward to watching the site grow and heartily recommend it to all my crib playing friends.

And, not least of all, did i mention that it's free...amazing" - Phil from Montour Falls, NY
