This was found at a local thrift shop and they are stumped as to what game this is or what game it is from (no rules or box were included) can any one help identify it?

Looks like a generic card and dice set with a home piercing kit on the side ...

Looks like just a Card and Dice set with Pins for a cribbage board (looks like you missing the cribbage board which came with the set.).

Would Cribbage pins have knobs on both ends?

They could, but it probably wouldn't be the best design. They look like jacks that are cut in half or unfinished.

Nine pegs would be the correct number of pegs for a modern cribbage board: three sets each of one game counter and two leapfrogging score pegs.

Six dice is the correct number for Yahtzee, though I guess this is just a generic set of bridge cards, dice, and cribbage pegs.

I agree it's probably a generic set for common games, or a set for two or three specific common games.

Yahtzee is 5 dice. It could be another common game -- for example Farkle is 6 dice.

I don't think the pegs have anything to do with Cribbage - they would be different colors, they wouldn't have two ends like that, and there would be a cribbage board somewhere. That package looks like it is just missing the box...

The card backs and bright orange insert screams generic, cheapo gaming set to me.

Those aren't like any cribbage pegs I have seen! Maybe some sort of dexterity game? What country was this found in? Canada?
