It is said that the game of Cribbage was created by the English poet, Sir John Suckling, in the early 17th century as a derivation of the game ‘noddy’. Although this game has disappeared, ‘Crib’ has survived more or less unchanged and remains one of the most popular games in the English-speaking world.
