Briscola

Postby Een » 23 October 2018, 15:24

We are happy today to release a new classic card game: Briscola, one of the most popular traditional card games in Italy, is now available on Board Game Arena.

Play it now!

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!

One of my favourite card games is now on BGA! thank you to the developer for creating it and BGA for hosting it :)

I've added a quick 'How to Play' section in English and Italian - hope it helps any new players.

Great! But there is a bug in the game...often the last card can not be played, so the match doesn't finish!

Thanks! There was indeed a problem when a round ended with a draw. It's fixed now. But please create a detailed report in the bug tracker with the exact error message and if possible a screenshot next time, it makes things easier for us ;)

The game where you relax your brain for a second and forget 3 is important :shock: :lol:

btw I wish there was a tally screen with all card points, like how many ace points, how many 3 points etc :idea:

¿Se trata de la «brisca» de toda la vida? ¡Qué curioso, siempre pensé que era de origen español! Sea como sea, es un juegazo. ¡Espero que se popularice en BGA!
