Master cribbage and impress your friends! Inside How to Play Cribbage, you´ll discover everything you need to know to have fun with this fascinating game: Basic beginner strategies for quick success and more wins Tactics for making smart choices on the discard How to take the lead - and reply to your opponent´s lead Tips for playing cribbage with three to six players Originally invented in the 1600s, cribbage became very popular with sailors (especially in the mid-1900s). During World War II, American submarine crews on long voyages became avid cribbage players. Admiral Richard O´Kane was once dealt a perfect hand in a cribbage game - and his lucky cribbage board has been passed down by generations of submarine captains. You can embrace the modern tradition of cribbage by learning the simple and compelling rules of the game. All you need to play is a friend (or a group of friends), a deck of cards, and a cribbage board (a board with 121 holes and pegs for each player). With this easy-to-understand guidebook, you can quickly pick up the basics of the game, including pegging, counting, and ´´quick counting´´. You´ll learn about the ´´perfect 29´´, how to win with 121 points, and how to ´´skunk´´ your opponents. You´ll find out how to use the ´´crib´´ (the namesake of the game) to your advantage - both as the dealer and a non-dealer. This book even offers sneaky tactics for experienced players, such as using ´´muggins´´ to keep your opponents honest and earn more points! Language: English. Narrator: Forris Day Jr. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/084969de/bk_rhde_002536_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Touching on all areas of human endeavor, including politics, the arts, literature, sports, relationships, and even the risqué, the book features contributions from Oscar Wilde, Mark Twain, Dorothy Parker, Mae West, Groucho Marx, Winston Churchill, Dolly Parton, and scores more.As entertaining as it is intellectually enriching, Viva la Repartee is sure to capture the attention of language lovers and is the perfect antidote for anyone who´s ever thought I wish I´d said that!

The Easter Rising as One of the Most Crucial Ev...

Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: 1,3, Martin Luther University, language: English, abstract: The Easter Rising of national Irish rebels is still nowadays regarded as one of the most crucial events throughout Irish history. One may consider it as an botched attempt to gain sovereignty and disparage it to be an uprising that was senseless and doomed to failure in advance, others view it as a symbol of Irish martyrdom and as an insurgence that was anything but useless. Advocates claim that the Easter Rising was necessary to exercise pressure onto the British usurpators. They state that a military uprising like this, even if there was less prospect of success, showed Westminster that there could not be any long- term peace in Ireland without dealing with the question of home rule. Opponents argue that Irish rebels caused the loss of lives of innocent people by fighting a war that was at this time not backed up by the common Irish people, and that in the end they themselves are to be blamed for the casualties and devastation the fights demanded. Supporters reply that the insurrection was the first step to a free state of Ireland, that it stirred nationalism in the minds of the Catholics of the Island and that it was a milestone on the way to the republic. Whatever scholars think of it, it is a matter of fact that this event is one of the most commemorated incidents in Ireland. Countless erected monuments and installed plates at places all over the Island reminisce of the losses and sacrifices of the 1916 rebels. They are called patriots who fought, outnumbered and starved, for a holy aim and who had to submit to ruthless soldiers, sent by an illicit and tyrannous foreign government. Therefore the uprising prevails in the mind of the Irish people, bolstered up by songs, poems or parades and days of commemoration. This paper shall examine the circumstances right before the outbreak of the rising, its preparation and the course of events within it. Furthermore it intends to show in what way the British restored their power and how they responded to the open violence. The paper is supposed to try to display what aftermaths the Easter Rising actually had and if there was any sense in this adventure that was apparently doomed to failure in advance. Another point is concerned with the reflection of the rebellion. If it is blamed to be another example of useless hatred, conducted by only few men of weird mind, or if it is viewed as a necessary act of freedom by heroes who sacrificed themselves on the altar of a free Ireland.
