Introducing the “Ultralight” Travel Cribbage Gift Set

Inspired by the pocket games soldiers carried in WWII, our Travel Cribbage Board Gift Set has become such a perennial favorite among Walnut fans that we introduced a new twist: we’ve made it 38% cuter!

Lighter weight and lower volume, our new gift set is perfect for ounce-counters, backpackers, world travelers, through-hikers, and light packers everywhere.

The Ultralight Travel Cribbage Gift Set comes complete with a 3.25″ x 5″ double-drawstring muslin carrying pouch decorated with artwork by illustrator Carla Bartow and a set high quality linen mini Travel Playing Cards (which are also sold separately).

The new set is 38% lighter than the regular Gift Set, and significantly smaller in volume, weighing in at 3oz / 87g (compared to the Gift Set, which weighs 4.8oz / 137g).

We’ve shrunk down the carrying pouch, and we’ve shrunk down the playing cards – but not TOO much, so they’re still comfortable to play. The Travel Cribbage Board is the same size.

The new playing cards are a half-size deck, measuring 1.75″ x 2.5″  (45mm x 63mm). We selected the nicest materials for this custom-made deck: linen material for airy weight and a smooth matte finish for lovely handfeel. 

On the back, we feature an art print by Jim Golden photography, an actual photo of our entire collection.  

On the front, we selected a standard bridge deck with the card numbers in all four corners, which we’ve found to be perfect for counting your partner’s points across the table during cribbage. 

We can also monogram the Travel Cribbage Board to make your board extra-special – and a deterrent to would-be thieves!
