Developed new smart launcher application that you can download and easy attach via email. This smart launcher will automatically check for any new ecribbage versions and download them. It also allows some memory customization for users that have the game slow down on them. Just save this file and then double click on it to launch. You can also just save it to your desktop and use that icon on your desktop to launch from now on, quickly and easily.
If the smart launcher app doesn’t open, right click on it and choose Open With… and go find where you installed Java.exe. It is usually located somewhere like c:\program files (x86)\java\jre8\bin\java.exe. Choose that file and the app will launch.
This new launcher will work for all versions of Java, Java6, 7, 8, and any future versions.
The new launcher has the copy chat function fixed so you can click on chats and copy them.
The new smart launcher is located here: http://proxy.ecribbage.com/smart_launcher.jar
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any problems using the new smart launcher, we will make sure we get you going ASAP.

The main reason eCribbage exists is that my Dad told me to go after my dreams just before he passed away from Cancer.
Every October, we try and chip away at cancer with some donations. 50% of all eCribbage purchases go towards cancer charity for the first 2 weeks of October.

A wonderful surprise from Honeydo:
“Dave, aka Tweek and I met online at another site that offered cribbage as well as other games. We became monitors on that site, we wanted to protect the players from rude and offensive players. Someone mentioned lowball cribbage and I went looking for it online. I found ecribbage and downloaded it.
It was more than Dave and I could have imagined, a well run, well developed site just for cribbage. A huge gathering of cribbage players all on one site. The folks at ecrib welcomed us and both of us became avid players.
Dave loved cribbage and embraced ecrib. His favorite thing to do was Buzz a Friend. All those that remember him will remember his use of that button.
Dave passwed away May 12th, 2010. The support I received from our family at ecrib was overwhelming. Damien took the Buzz a Friend button and renamed it Buzz / Tweek a Friend in Dave (aka tweeks) honor.
What better testimony to his memory I have not found. In his memory I have donated 30 Pro Memberships to be won by players starting on the 19th at 9pm and tunning through the 21st. See the wall online for the particulars on the tournaments. Please play to enjoy and very good luck to all!”

eCribbage will be growing a lot in the next few months with our new ability to run simultaneous tournaments. We will build up to 14 tournaments a day and as a result will be bringing on a lot of new TDs. Because of this, we had to spread responsibility around and we added well defined roles for TD management.
Former Head TD StreetPegger has decided to move on to greener pastures, so we wish him the best of luck and thank him for his wonderful years of service.
Here is the new ecribbage organization:
I am very much looking forward to the new organization and focusing on the things that I love about eCribbage.
I have faith that together we can work towards growing eCribbage and gaining back its reputation of a fun, family friendly place to play.
Please join me in welcoming the new team and let us know if you have any questions.

From request of many players, we have added the ability to have more tournaments and simultaneous tournaments on the site.
We now have Tourny A, B, C, and D lounges. To see which lounge a tourny is being hosted in, You will see an A or C by the tournament name from the Tournaments / Future Tournaments List.
Go to that lounge to check in for the specific tournament you would like. Split Tournaments from A will go to A and B lounge, and split tournaments from C lounge will go to C and D lounge.
