Such beautiful details and materials went into making this set. You really thought of everything! We’ve definitely upped our cribbage style thanks to you!
I mostly very much like this Deluxe Travel Cribbage Board. Especially the compact design, the long metal pegs, the storage area for cards and pegs, and how the magnets keep the board closed when not in use.
It is 90%+ well-put-together, but there is one design flaw that is disappointing to me. As shown in the pictures below, the pegs do not sit vertically in the holes for point values 26 and 30 but rest at an angle because of the way the wooden frame underneath interferes with the peg placement through the leather upper. (This doesn't seem to be an issue for any other point values, just 26 and 30 but is true for all three tracks.) The solid design and long pegs leaves me confident that the pegs are not likely to easily fall out of any of the other holes when using the board while traveling (say on a plane), but I am a bit concerned that for these two holes, the pegs might be less inclined to stay in their place.
I am not a woodworker / carpenter, but wouldn't it be possible to (carefully) drill holes or hollow-out the wooden frame where the frame interferes with peg placement? Since this is in the folding part of the board, such a modification need not change the aesthetic perception of this otherwise well-crafted board when it is either open or closed.
I appreciate the observant review and the critique is well-received.The highlighted design detail is necessary and deliberate to maximize durability, honor the wood's structural integrity, and pace out the game course. The pegs fit securely up to the hilt in all the peg holes. If you don't love it, we do accept returns. -Geoff
Just received this and photos don't begin to do the quality justice. I am so excited to use my new board. VERY HIGH QUALITY! Thank you!!
