Game play for Kings Cribbage is much like Scrabble. Players first draw a letter from a bag to see who draws (and goes) first. Unlike Scrabble, however, players only draw 5 tiles rather than 7. The first player tries to find the best Cribbage hand within his 5 tiles and then places them in a line (in any order) anywhere on the board. The first play must be between 2 and 5 tiles, but all subsequent plays can be anwhere from 1 to 5 tiles. Points are tallied based on the rules of Cribbage. He then restocks his tiles and the play continues to the next person. The next player must then find his best hand (using his tiles and the tiles already on the board) and places it next to the tiles on the board. The game continues until one player has used up all his/her tiles.
