I used to play with my old man when I was about 14....I bought a cheap ass cribbage set the other night and couldnt figure out for the life of me how to play it....I kind of have the basics down but some of it is still confusing

Bouret....Now thats a quality RR gamblin game.....

Every terminal around here plays Tonk for dollars or quarters. Never heard of Bouret.

Bouret is kinda the same way......Each person gets 4 cards....Flip the top card off the deck....Thats the trump card....Each player can discard up to 4 cards....

Object is to get as many trumps as possible....There's different ways to play but thats the most common....

I haven't seen hardly any card games in years, they disappeared around here when the full crews were done away with.

Cribbage is a card game you can play every day
the rest of your life and not get enough. Recall
many a graveyard shift in the Everett Depot with
numerous different clerks playing crib damn near
all night inbetween trains. We never needed a crib
board as we just kept score on switch lists. 121 wins
the game. Played this one dude over 30 games one
night for a quarter a game and ended up with a
quarter when the shift ended. My favorite is 15-2,
15-4, and 8's a dozen.

Reading through this old thread and saw Tonk. They used to play Tonk on every worktrain I was ever on. Some of the work trains that I was on, that's the only thing that got done the entire day. Just sit in the clear all day and read or play Tonk. Read the rulebook or ETT, naturally.

Brings back memories of epic cribbage games with both my mom and my dad - 25 cents a game. Sometimes the old boy and I would get all tanked up while we played and do some very creative pegging. Or forget we were playing cribbage. What a great game.

Work trains afford the most time to read the paper or sleep.
