    Cribbage was invented in the 1600's by Sir John Suckling who "cut quite a swath in his day". Suckling inherited his father's fortune when he was only 18, and in addition to being a poet, he was also a soldier. Rich, handsome, and generous, Suckling was also very popular and was regarded as the best card player and bowler in Britain, if not all Europe. In 1641 he led a conspiracy to rescue a friend who was jailed in the Tower of London, and when the plot was discovered, Sir John fled to France. A year later - unable to return to his beloved England - the unhappy poet took poison and died.

    During World War II, Cribbage became a traditional game for American Submariners to play while passing the time on patrol for Japanese ships.
