San Diego, CA (PRWEB) November 26, 2008
Crash Cribbage joins Kings Cribbage, Cribbage with Jokers, Lowball Cribbage, Traditional Cribbage, and four other cribbage variants in the rapidly growing online eCribbage community started in mid-2008.
Crash Cribbage is a variation of cribbage that uses the traditional rules of cribbage but is played on a unique figure-8 pegging track. All players share the same track and can bump or "crash" into each others' pegs thereby adding or subtracting points. This adds a new element of offensive and defensive strategy in the pegging round.
"The new partnership with Crash Cribbage is very exciting," said Blond. "eCribbage prides itself in its vast collection of cribbage games, so having Crash Cribbage available to play at eCribbage.com is an essential part of the experience for cribbage enthusiasts."
Crash Cribbage designer Joe Kane, who is also an active duty U.S. Navy chief petty officer stationed in San Diego said making Crash Cribbage available for online play has been a goal for nearly ten years.
"I'm almost in shock," Kane said. "Since I first came up with the concept of Crash right after my first Western Pacific deployment with USS Boxer in '96 - '97 and made a rough prototype in my basement, I've been trying to find someone to design a virtual version that I'd be happy with. When I met Damien in 2007 and saw the incredible community of cribbage enthusiasts he was building, I knew right away we just had to work together on Crash."
Kane said he's been selling the physical version of Crash Cribbage from his Web site, http://www.crashcribbage.com since about 1999 but getting a version online is like a dream come true.
"I can't wait to play online," said Kane. "I've had boxes of Crash Cribbage boards in my garage for all these years as I've sold them from my Web site, but I rarely get to meet or interact with the people who purchase them. The online version will not only be a cool new way to play and to introduce the game to a bunch more people, but will also be a great way to get direct feedback from people around the world who play the game."
