Whale Cribbage is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from PLEASE read before purchasing! I bought this cribbage board a month or so back and LOVED it until I turned it over and saw that it appears to contain lead. (See picture.) This sticker greatly disturbed me so I posted a 1 star review to alert potential buyers of this metal. After my posting, I received a call from Amy (from LL Bean’s corporate office) who kindly explained to me that California law (Prop65), out of an abundance of caution, requires the manufacturer to affix this label to the product EVEN THOUGH IT DOES NOT CONTAIN LEAD. (LL Bean has tested this item and it is lead free. It has never contained lead.) Unfortunately, I cannot remove my former 1 star review so I am posting this updated review in the hopes that this will clear up some confusion for buyers. Now that you know the history, grab this wonderful cribbage board before they are sold out. It is just perfect and I wish you all as many hours of fun as I have had since purchasing it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value for the price I had been looking on line for a board so my spouse and I could try to master cribbage during this time of staying indoors. The less expensive ones in other places all had reviews that cited problems with the board (cracking, uneven holes, etc) and the pins (didn't fit, too short, etc.) The LLBean board is terrific. No problems with it, the look and feel are easy to use. I should have saved time and just started with LLBean to begin with.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality control Ordered 2 of these. One for myself that came with a crack in the tail which I returned. Customer service was nice. The second one for a friend I had engraved. It arrived later and has a crack/sliver of wood missing on the lower bottom right under the mouth. I repaired the crack myself with wood glue and fill. Very poor quality control. For the price not worth it but needed the board for a gift so kept the engraved one I fixed myself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable and well made! Excellent quality, very well made! Has a little spot to hold all of the pegs on the side. Absolutely beautiful piece we hope to treasure for years to come!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Love it! It is so cute. I had been looking for a fun shaped cribbage board for a while and everything out there is so overpriced. I was very happy to see this come back into stock! Having the blow hole as the peg holder is genius and clever, and the wood grain is beautiful. My only complaint is that the peg holes around the corners are harder to count because the spacing is further apart. But every time we play this, we have a whale of a time! :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product contains LEAD! I waited 3+ weeks for this product only to discover (when I turned it over) that it contains LEAD! (See pictures.) I would never have purchased this had I known it contained lead. LLBEAN - Why would you sell a product with this metal?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute idea I was a bit disappointed in the quality of this product. It was not as nice as I thought it would be.
