Darts are another fun one of mine. Played in the Minute Man Dart League for a bit (north shore of Boston) Tactics is my favorite though. Like Cricket only you can "point" the other person.
So if they have 20's open you can keep shooting them and then they need to close them and get
5 19's or what ever to make up the 20 points.
Cribbage is my game though. My Dad taught me when I little (He played tournaments in the Navy) Even played "cut throat" teaching me. "That all you got ?" He'd take my points if I didn't count them right. Taught me if they play a 7, they prob. have an 8 or a 6. Play a 2 prob. have a 3 or 4, play a face card, have a 5 or face card. Lesson: Stay out of the runs. (unless you have a fistful and can set them up)
And where you are on the board matters. How many "counts" does each person have a the end. And NEVER double up on last street. Unless you're behind. (and you have 2 more of the same) lol
