Cribbage With Grandpas is a game where you play cribbage with your grandpa. It features a grandpa creator which allows the player to create a grandpa of their choosing and select what personality they should have (grumpy, silly, sweet, etc.) which affects light dialogue during play.

Cribbage is a pre-existing card game that was created in the 1600's known for it's unique wooden board and scoring system. It can be enjoyed by players of all ages and types.

Our game was inspired by the simple human pleasure of connecting with your grandpa over a game of cards and by the pre-existing game of cribbage which has been passed down through families since it's creation in the 1600's. Through the mechanical act of creating an avatar for your grandpa you activate memories and experiences you had with that person. The game can be a meditation on the value of care and human connection, a memorial, or a silly and relaxing game of cards.
