    You "skunk' someone in Cribbage when you finish before they pass the skunk line. It is consifered a greater victory/defeat. I've never paid attention to exactly where the line is. I've only tried to make sure I was past it. :)

    Crib is frequently played as best-of-eleven matches, or maybe best-of-thirteen matches. If you finish a match before your opponent crosses the skunk line, that counts as two wins.

    Like catlady pointed out, the skunk line is right after the 90th hole.
