Fat chance your teen has ever heard of cribbage. And that's too bad, because this classic game of strategy, skill, and counting is a hoot. Filled with fast-paced play and tactical thinking, this is an addictively challenging game - one in which practice definitely makes perfect. The rules of play are a little involved, but center around racing around the board as quickly as possible. Once you get the hang of it, you're hooked. We love this tri-color beauty from Bicycle, with three tracks rather than two, and a great retro vibe. (Bicycle, $9.47)
