I'm not a cribbage player, but isn't there a term "skunked" in cribbage? Can anyone define it? Does it have a broader application, to other games? — Dvortygirl 06:15, 7 February 2006 (UTC)

Indeed, skunk and double skunk, a skunk occurs when one player has reached the end (121) and the opponent has failed to reach 91. A double skunk occurs when the opponent fails to reach 61. They are worth 2 wins and 4 wins respectively. Etymology: perhaps due to how much the skunkee stinks? - TheDaveRoss 06:29, 7 February 2006 (UTC)
