Briscola is a trick taking card game that you can play either one on one or in teams with a standard Italian 40 cards deck (for people unfamiliar with Italian cards, on BGA an in-game preference allows to display cards using an Anglo-French deck).
At the start of a round, each player is dealt three cards, then the next card, called the Briscola, is displayed face up and represent the trump suit for this round. Each player in turn will play a card, and the trick will be taken by the player having played the strongest card in the suit requested by the first player, or the strongest card in the trump suit. Unlike some other trick taking games, in Briscola you do not have to follow suit, which gives players more flexibility to manage their hand strategically. Also, be sure to check how cards are ranked between themselves for strength before starting a game!
Briscola has been adapted using BGA Studio by Tommaso Pifferi (neslinesli93) an Italian developer and fan of the game. A big thank you to him for gifting the BGA community with this quick and fun card game!
We hope that Italian players will enjoy playing this game here on BGA, and that a lot of players of other countries will get curious and have fun discovering and playing Briscola!
