Default Cribbage Question

I learned cribbage in college, but havenít played for at least a decade. My wife and I started playing it together and she really enjoyed it as did I. I am hoping the card players of the AO can help us solve a question we canít find online. During play, do runs count across hands? Example, I play a 5, to make it 27, wife plays a 4 to make it 31 and the hand ends. If I start the next hand with a 3, is that a run?

Additional question, same example above, does my wife get 2 or 3 points for hitting 31 and playing the last card.

Additional question, if my wife instead played a 2, and I canít lay, then plays another two, does she get 1 point for my go and an additional 2 point for hitting 31, or just 1 additional point?

No. Once you hit "31" (or can't play w/o exceeding 31), that part is done and you start over.

As for "playing the last card", you get either 1 point (if the total isn't 31) or 2 points (if the total is 31).

And she would get the 2 points for the pair* plus the "last card" point(s) (see sentence above).


*Note, say the total is 22 when she plays that 2--and all of your card(s) are 10 cards--and she has two more 2's in her hand; when she plays the "next" 2, she'll peg 2 points for the pair. When she plays that third 2, she'll peg an additional 6 points for a 3-of-a-kind.
