A clone of the Italian card game Briscola
This is a classic Italian game, surely one of the most popular, thanks to the simplicity of the rules and the modest skills required to players.
Even being a traditional Italian game, its origins are probably Nordic; Actually seems it's been imported in the 17Th century from France, that imported it from the Netherlands.
You need an Italian pack of 40 cards (numbers from 1 to 7 and the court, without jokers), or a French pack after taking off the cards from 8 to 10 and the jokers.
There may be 4 players subdivided into 2 teams, or (less often) just 2 players, except for the variants mentioned later into this guide.
Each match is won by the player (or the couple) that exceeds the score of 60, since the total prize is of 120 points.
