In the Daily Scrimmage, a kind of "Duplicate Cribbage", all players receive identical sets of cards and play against the same opponent - the highest difficulty "Brutal" AI player. The cut card, first dealer, and computer gameplay are all uniformly set each day to ensure a true test of skill.

You'll earn "Scrimmage Points" (SP) based on your pegging, hand scoring, point spread, win/loss result, and more. Rack up a high score and you can share your SP total along with a results link to compete with friends! You can also see your standing relative to others in the all new Daily Scrimmage Leaderboard.

The scrimmage resets at midnight each day, allowing you to keep playing to extend your streak. Here are some other key details:
