Why we love this product

An after-dinner board game for the discerning.

The Cribbage Board is an exquisite grown-up plaything. It is a beautifully crafted work of art, pleasingly tactile and with a neatly stitched leather case.

The maker, Hugh Parsons, was introduced to cribbage as a teenager and is fond of the game and its importance to Scottish and British culture.

We love that Hugh combines his woodworking skills and his interest in cribbage. He decided to produce this handmade cribbage board as a tasteful, unique and desirable alternative to the mass-produced versions available.
