Introduction & Let’s Play: Briscola

For my DIGC310 digital artefact I decided to take a look at a traditional Italian card game my family has been playing for years: Briscola. I created an introductory video explaining the rules of the game, its distribution and some interesting facts.

I also documented a game of Briscola I played with my Nonna Maria, Nonno Charlie and Great Aunt Pena. It took about five minutes to play and was quite fun.
