Get ready to heat up the cribbage board, because the Summer 2023 Season of Competitive Cribbage is live and in full swing!
The exciting Spring 2023 season of competitive cribbage has come to a close, with all the statistics and top performers firmly locked and recorded. The season started off with great enthusiasm, and as the allure of the spring weather grew stronger, the level of participation and number of matches played stabilized to an about average level. Following an exceptionally active previous season, it is gratifying to witness a considerable number of players who remain dedicated to the thrill of the competitive format. Adding to the anticipation for the upcoming season is the exciting release of a new version of the game that is gradually rolling out to players over the next few weeks.
As we dive into the sizzling Summer 2023 season, note that we're keeping the format consistent and not shaking things up right now, with no major changes to the format.
Spring 2023 welcomed a fresh influx of enthusiastic players, with many newcomers showcasing their skills and climbing the Leaderboard throughout the season. It's a real joy to witness the arrival of these new contenders and witness their exciting journeys unfold! The competition this season was thrilling, as the race for the top position was incredibly close for a while, with mere fractions separating these cribbage titans. A heartfelt thank you goes out to all who participated, both on and off the Leaderboard, for your invaluable contributions. Even if you didn't secure a spot in the final Top 50, your dedication and involvement are truly appreciated. And let's not forget to extend a special thanks to those who brought along their friends to share in the cribbage excitement! Together, you made Spring 2023 a season to remember.
In 1st place for Spring 2023, we have "Saskie" up from far behind last season, although a regular player and past top finisher a few seasons back. Good to see you back in the mix! 2nd place is someone we have seen in the Top 50 multiple times before, "Dhrun". In 3rd we have "rookie22", who may need to consider a username change in the near future, as they were a top finisher just last season as well. Other interesting movements in the Top 50 included "TC2", up 10 places to finish 4th. "Doksboy" moved up 13 places to finish in 9th place, "MTBiggs" finished in 10th up from 22nd, and "scout3" finished 13th up from 261st!! The excitement was intense as we witnessed a thrilling showdown for the top positions in the final stretch of this season, with the last few weeks delivering some nail-biting, neck-and-neck battles. It was a blast to witness, and I genuinely hope that all of you had as much fun as I did! Let's not forget about the incredible achievements of numerous other players who made significant strides during this season. Alongside them, we can also see many familiar names on the list, which calls for a big round of applause and congratulations to each and every one of you! Well done on your outstanding performances!
Kudos and heartfelt recognition are extended to each and every player who secured a spot in the prestigious Top 50 this season! As a token of recognition for your remarkable achievements, you have been bestowed with the special in-game "board peg" that symbolizes your triumph. But wait, that's not all! To truly honor your exceptional skills, we are also thrilled to present you with Cribbage Pro Gold that can be used in the Cribbage Pro Contests system and then redeemed for cash (awards must be used at least once in a Contest to be cashed out to USDC, see the full terms and conditions for details). The Gold awards do expire, so use them or lose them! If you are awarded Gold, and are not sure what it is good for (or how to access the Contests system), read through the links above or email us any time if you have questions. On iOS you will need the "Cribbage Pro Contests" version of the app, and on Android and Windows you need to install the game using the Amazon Appstore. It is easy to do, so don't let that app install process get in the way of some good cribbage fun! The Cribbage Pro Gold awards are as follows (not cumulative):
- 4 Gold for Top 50
- 7 Gold for Top 25
- 10 Gold for Top 10
- 20 Gold for 3rd Place
- 30 Gold for 2nd Place
- 50 Gold for 1st Place
The top finisher is awarded the "crown" board peg, and all others in the Top 50 are awarded a "star" board peg. These pegs are shown to everyone when playing in online multiplayer games, and they are permanent, so if you see your opponent has one of them you can know that they have earned it by finishing in the Top 50 in competitive play.
