World's Largest Cribbage Board
View Larger Map
As part of the 2009 Art Shanties Project. We set the world's record for the largest cribbage board. Gas powered ice augers were used to drill 242 holes in the frozen surface of Medicine Lake. In compliance with the MN DNR and the lake patrol, the holes were drilled 10' apart from one another in a non-linear path that circumnavigated the small community of ice houses. Players were required to move 5' pegs around the board while pulling the playing table (equipped with clothespins to keep the cards from blowing away) and the players chairs.
The GPS map above documents the path of the players of the first official game. Total miles walked = 2.8. Total playing time = 3.75 hours.
