Briscola is one of Italy's most popular card games together with Scopa and Tressette. It is also popular as Bisca or Brisca in South America.

Initial setting

  • The dealer deals out three cards to each player.
  • One card is placed face up on the playing surface. This card is the Briscola (Brisca), and represents the trump suit for the game.

The game

  • The first player places a card on the table. Its suit will lead the turn
  • Each player places a card on the table.
  • After all players have played one card. The winner of that hand is determined as follows
    • if any briscola (trump) has been played, the player who played the highest valued trump wins (the scale is ace, 3, king, horse, queen, 7, 6, 5, 4, 2)
    • if no briscola (trumps) have been played, the player who played the highest card of the lead suit wins
  • Once the winner of a trick is determined, that player collects the played cards.
  • After all cards have been played, players calculate the total point value of cards in their own piles.


The most common version of the point scale is:
  • Ace (asso) = 11 points,
  • Three (3) = 10 points,
  • King (re) = 4 points,
  • Jack (valete, cavallo) = 3 points,
  • Queen (dame) = 2 points,

The game is played until one player has at least 61 points.
