This is crib with strategy. One team is trying to make 5 good crib hands lengthwise and the other team is trying to make 5 good crib hands widthwise. Cards are dealt out to each player but they only get to see the top card on their turn. The 25th card is dealt face up onto the centre spot. On each players turn they flip up their top card and decide the best location to place it. Each square is used in both directions. The board is 17" by 21" and comes with a custom made storage and carrying bag.
