My bro, xhawk just bowled a 300 game in his league this week. He has been bowling for a long, long time and I think it is great he reached this milestone! Very Happy

That's awesome. Do you still get a fancy ring for that?

My sister just got a 29 hand in cribbage. It's the highest hand you can get, and it is very rare. She just got bragging rights. Very Happy

Now THAT is a truly noteworthy feat. Not to diminish the accomplishment of a 300 game, but 300 games and holes-in-one happen thousands of times a year. I have a hole-in-one and ISAG. But a 29 hand is something that very few cribbage players have ever been privileged to see. My grandfather told me he once saw a painting of a player holding a 29 hand watching his opponent pegging out. Can you imagine the agony?

Congrats to him. The closest I've been able to come to this is a 276, which is very good for me.

I've seen 29 hands dealt twice WAY back when I used to play on a regular basis. But they were never dealt to me Crying or Very sad

I had a 29 once I cheered and my wife thought I was nuts as even after counting it she still skunked me that game. It just kept me from a double skunk good hand wroung game for me. At least the person that bowled 300 won there game.
