Product Description

This absurdly fun mash-up reimagines the most popular table-top game of all time as a creepy zombie march with twisted rules and game components for a new generation of players, including a custom-illustrated deck of cards. Points earned through card play send zombies lurching down a cobblestone scoreboard in a race to the finish line. Zombie Cribbage resurrects a great card game for all ages in a package that’s as handy on-the-go as it is at home.

Cards and the board are nice, but the actual pegs are very difficult to use, they snag on each other almost any time you try and move them creating more chaos than a zombie apocalypse.

I love cribbage and I love zombies

I love cribbage and I love zombies.

This set is very cool, the pieces are fun and there are a lot of solid details in the board that reinforce the theme.

The deck of cards that come with the set, while not "nice" by Bicycle standards, are much better than expected and feature a plastic coating that allows them to be shuffled and played with without a lot of the sticking that so often comes with "pack-in" cards. They also feature custom artwork to "zombify" the deck and are much better than expected.

Sounds like it should be higher than three stars, right? The problem comes when actually trying to play cribbage with it. The zombie pieces, while very cool looking and fun, make pretty terrible cribbage pegs due to the poses of the zombies. We found it difficult to score due to an extraneous limb getting in the way of placing a "peg".

Technically, three stars is "I like it", and I do. We just won't be using it much.

Cool Zombie Cribbage Board
by Jon A Johnson (5 out of 5 stars)
January 26, 2015

Note: It is made of plastic, not wood which I was typically used to from a cribbage board. The zombie pegs are cool, and there are both men and women zombies involved. The zombie deck of cards, included, was also very cool.

Bought like 5 years ago, but cool Cribbage set. Pieces sometimes work badly when near each other but whatever

Low quality living dead

Got this as a gift for my wonderful, cribbage-addicted son-in-law. He loved it. Pretty cheaply made, but fun.

a bit disappointed

I had this item for awhile and finally gave it to my husband. He was so excited. It is definitely one of those things that looks cooler than it is. The game board you pdg on is really cheaply made plastic, and hard to see the pegs. Also, the peg holes do not match up making it technically an uneven play. The zombies are cool, but against the gray board aren't the easiest to see. The cards are not as zombified as I expected them to be.

Overall I love the concept, it is a neat idea, and is a cute novelty item, but the quality is very low.... for people who play crib a lot, I don't see this holding up well at all.

The idea was nice, the actual game was lacking. Positives: it explains how to play cribbage; negatives: cheaply mad, the 'zombie' pegs do not fit well, the cards are just standard cards.

I was expecting a fun variation to cribbage like when playing 'Crib Wars'. Zombie Cribbage throws in the jokers as wild cards, while it adds variation it leaves much to be desired. Again if you are looking for a fun variation on cribbage don't waste your money on this buy 'Crib Wars' and google the directions for playing cribbage with jokers and save yourself some money.

Bought this for my nephew for Christmas. Good board with some awesome zombie pegs. Great for a 13 year old kid who always beats his dad at cribbage.

Great for cribbage and zombie lovers...

I got this game for my husband for Christmas and he loves it. The game has options to play different ways with the included zombie cards. We take this game with us when we go out for drinks and have been asked several times where we got it.
