Travel Cribbage Board

  • Inspired by the pocket games soldiers carried in WWII, the Travel Cribbage Board is one of the smallest cribbage boards on the market, and a timeless classic in a stunning leather enclosure.

    Smaller than a deck of cards and made to fit in your bike bag, briefcase, or pocket, the lightweight Travel Cribbage Board goes wherever life takes you.

    The 60-point, laser-engraved board comes complete with four pegs for two players, which store safely inside an inset brass tube and secured with a premium grade cork plug.

    NEW PEG OPTIONS!  We finally located a source of American-made cast metal cribbage pegs that fit in our small travel size board! Upgrade from handcrafted (and easily replaceable) wire pegs to cast metal pegs. The cast metal pegs weigh slightly more but have a wonderful hand feel. Cast metal pegs come in black and brass. 

    Our crafted wire pegs are the most lightweight, shaped to a fine point, and are perfect for travelers on the go because you can replace them with 14 gauge solid copper wire at any hardware store in the world. Wire pegs come in red and black solid copper. 

    Now also available as a Gift Set, with muslin carrying pouch decorated with artwork by illustrator Carla Bartow and a set of American-made, recycled-content BICYCLE ® Eco Edition playing cards by the US Playing Card Company. The small double-drawstring bag is the perfect size to keep your cards and board organized together in your pack. 

    Wrapped in fine, hand-dyed, vegetable-tanned leather and secured with an antique brass closure, the Travel Cribbage Board can also be monogrammed for a personalized, statement-making piece.

    A celebrated and top selling product, the Travel Cribbage Board is the perfect piece for the classic game connoisseur and cribbage lover. 

    Also works for All Fives and Muggins, or other point-counting card games.

    SPARE PARTS: Replacement corks and pegs are available in our Parts section. 

    LEATHER: Your Walnut Studiolo product uses natural, vegetable-tanned leather and will not look exactly as pictured here. Real, natural leather carries is a natural material, so every hide has unique characteristics that individually personalize each product. Just as no two fingerprints are alike, each piece of leather is distinctive in its color, grain, and markings, which may include scars, mars, or blemishes that are a natural part of the cow's life and a sign of the high quality of the leather we use.

    COLOR: Dark brown leather 

    MATERIALS: Birch plywood, hand-dyed vegetable-tanned leather, brass hardware, and premium cork closure. Gift set also includes one deck of playing cards and a stamped double-drawstring muslin carrying pouch. Pegs come in two options: solid copper wire or cast metal. The cast peg brass tube is interchangeable with our wire peg brass tube in our Travel Cribbage Board, but it is a slightly different size to accommodate the larger, heavier cast metal pegs. (In other words, the cast pegs don't fit inside the wire peg tube.)  

    DIMENSIONS/WEIGHTS: When closed, it measures 2" x 3 7/8" x 3/8" thick (50mm x 98mm x 9mm) and weighs in at 1.2 ounces (35g). The wood pieces are approximately 1/8" (3mm) thick.  

    CARE:The oils in your hands will naturally condition the leather with use and time. However, if your product is starting to look dry, take the time to give it a little care by conditioning it with oil or vegetable-tanned leather care products, using the leather care recommendations HERE. If your leather gets dirty, clean it then condition it. Clean it with diluted mild castile soap or hand dishwashing liquid, diluted at least 1:10 (it should not be sudsy), and allow to dry completely before conditioning. The board does lay flat, as shown in the picture, but when you first receive it the leather hinge will be a little stiff. It will lay flat as the leather relaxes, which you can speed up by folding and roughhousing the leather (it's tough equestrian leather, it can handle the roughhousing!).

    : Yes! The leather can be monogrammed with up to 3 characters using our 1/4" font set. Monogramming can add 2-3 days to the turnaround time. Monogram placement is shown in the last photo. Learn more about monogramming.

Cribbage for the traveler

I love my crib board so much. As a wildfire fighter weight is an important thing to keep in mind when packing my day bag, with this light weight board I never hesitate bringing it along. Traveling the world, sitting in your backyard, this board can go anywhere. An impressive little board. Two thumbs up! (I wish some of the profit went to help a greater cause, I’d spend more)

Love It!

I bought this as a Christmas gift for my boyfriend. We travel a lot and one of our favourite 'pass the time at the airport' activities is crib. He loved it! The craftsmanship and design are excellent, the leather is beautiful, the size is perfect for travel, the pegs are great quality (I upgraded), and the monogram was such a great touch.

Not only is the product great, but the vendors are too. I was late in getting my Christmas gifts this year and when I asked Geoff and Valerie if there was any way to get it to Canada within a week, they gave me a great, reasonably priced option. They were very responsive and helpful and the crib board arrived within just a few days.

I highly recommend this product!
