When my brother and I were growing up, my parents played a variety of games with us. But I wasn’t a huge fan of game night since I didn’t like sitting still or games that involved math. Like so many kids, I didn’t like losing and had to learn how to gracefully accept defeat after a close game of Candyland.

My mom said they taught us Cribbage so we could learn a game that required math and decision-making skills. And I ended up learning all the different ways you could add cards up to reach 15, a number that will get you two points in Cribbage.
