A couple that plays cribbage together stays together.

Gerry and Ella Otto, residents of the Crestview area, are members of Team Manitoba heading to the 2014 Canada 55+ Games, being held in Strathcona County, Alta. from Aug. 27 to 30.

Cribbage is a card game in which the goal of the game is to be the first to score 121 points.

"You try to make a combination of 15, and for every 15 you get, you get two points on your cribbage board," 79-year-old Gerry said.

Gerry and Ella have been playing cribbage for 22 years in the Manitoba 55 Plus Games. Gerry said he and his wife play cribbage because it gives them something to do and they like to meet new people with similar interests.

This is the second time the Ottos are participating the Canada 55+ Games.

"It’s sometimes held too far away. It’s been in the Yukon, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia. This time it’s just outside Edmonton — we’re going to drive there," Otto said.
