A classic card game has been found to have surprising applications in the classroom. CribbageSupply.com, the web's leading retailer of cribbage boards and other cribbage supplies, encourages educators to teach mathematical concepts using cribbage as an instructional tool.
The game of cribbage is a discrete example of combinatorics, permutation, probability and statistics and more basic arithmetic.

One of the most popular and enduring card games in the world, cribbage dates back to the early 1600s, when it was created as a variation on another card game known as "noddy." In modern times, the game of cribbage is especially popular with US submarine crews.
