Card Playing a Long Tradition in My Upbringing in Montana

It might just be a Montana thing, but it seems like playing cards are a part of every person's upbringing here.  How many of us learned to count via a cribbage board at our grandparent's house?  Or used it to teach our own offspring?


Or maybe you spent time playing cards with friends during basketball games, at lunch time, or even still enjoy heading out to test your mettle against others in the game of poker.  If that is you, time to get your bluff on.
