The American Cribbage Congress, established in 1980, is a non-profit organization dedicated to making the game of cribbage fun and fair for people of all ages.
One of the benefits of joining the American Cribbage Congress is a free subscription to Cribbage World. Cribbage World keeps members in touch with what's going on in the world of cribbage. It includes recaps of tournaments around the country, schedules of upcoming tournaments, player point standings as well as interesting stats and asides.
The ACC supports local (Grass Roots) clubs all across the country. These clubs meet once a week or every other week and conduct 6-game or 9-game tournaments that last between 2 and 3 hours. It's a great way to meet new people and play some cribbage without needing to travel very far.
The ACC sanctions more than 170 tournaments a year across the country. Members earn Master Rating Points and compete for cash prizes. Find out if there are any near you.
The ACC's Internet Cribbage Program gives members an opportunity to play in online tournaments, earn rating points, and compete for annual and lifetime awards.
The American Cribbage Congress acknowledges the importance of teaching youth the wonderful game of cribbage. Not only are they learning a game which will provide immeasurable enjoyment for the rest of their lives, they are also enhancing valuable educational skills such as mathematics, critical thinking, and cooperative learning.
The American Cribbage Congress Grand National XXXIX will take place in Sacramento, CA on September 22-27, 2020. For updates, see the Grand National page.
The ACC Hall of Fame is comprised of a group of very special people who have made important contributions to the game of cribbage. Some have been instrumental in the creation of the ACC. Some Hall of Famers have been inducted for their contributions to the growth of the ACC. Others have been voted in for their success on the boards.
Whether you're just learning the game or a seasoned player, we've got something for you in our Tip Libraries. Five noted ACC tacticians share some of their secrets of winning play. To view a library make a selection from the list on the right.

The best way to cheer yourself up is to try to cheer somebody else up. —Mark Twain
Each year in February or March, Lana and I take a trip to Florida to temporarily escape the cold and snow. This year was no different, so during the second week of February we headed to Orlando to check out Epcot and play some cribbage. We arrived on a Wednesday and planned to go to Epcot on Thursday and find something else to do on Friday before the tournaments started on Saturday.
Normally, we arrive at Epcot near opening and stay the entire day to see the fireworks at night. This year we arrived at opening like always, but after eating the buffet in Germany (to get ideas for Oktoberfest, the theme of this year's Grand National in North Conway NH in October) and walking over eight miles we decided to call it a day just after 6p.
For the next few days my legs and other parts of my body felt the pain of my decision to wear sandals to Epcot. So, the plan of doing something else fun on Friday vanished.
Saturday morning, we arrived at the tournament and saw the usual Floridians and other people who decided a warm break would be nice in the middle of February. We started playing, and on my table was a woman I didn’t know. At lunch I had the opportunity to talk to her and found out her name was Julie Mayo and she was from Gorham, Maine. Gorham is a couple towns away from where I live, and as it turned out I was very good friends in high school with the son of one of her very good friends.
This was her first tournament ever, and the only reason she played was because yearly she came to Florida to visit a friend. But this year her friend had already signed up for the tourney, so Julie decided to play also.
What happened on Saturday was a wonderful sight. People were kind and very helpful to Julie throughout the day. I must admit that after talking to her it would be tough not to be nice to such a sweet woman. I am proud seeing what a great organization we were all lucky enough to join.
