Event 728: Spanish Card Games at Caribou Coffee in Westlake

As always, we are happy to teach new players, so if you do not yet know any of these games, come on out and learn. Nearly everyone in the group learned these games after joining the group, so you are definitely not alone!

To date, we have learned a total of five Spanish card games:

  • Tute (2-4 players)
  • Mus (4 players)
  • Escoba (2-4 players)
  • Brisca (2-4 players)
  • Tresillo (3 -4 players)

Tonight we will play whichever of them fits our number of attendees and/or is in most demand. There is always the possibility of playing more than one!

    Seized the opportunity, with only 3 of us present, to play Tresillo, which some on the east side got to play awhile back, but which we had never played on the west side. This game, IMHO, deserves to become a regular part of our Spanish event repertoire. It really is quite good!

    Quote from a contributor on the Austurian-American Migration Forum: "Brisca is for REAL MEN, while Tute is left to amateurs, soft men and metrosexuals." While I certainly disagree to the somewhat offensive stereotyping present in this statement, I do agree with the basic point he is trying to make. Brisca is definitely a much tougher game to play than regular Tute and is therefore NOT for the squeamish (although Tute Gana-Pierde, AKA Evil Tute, does offer a certain amount of pain and anguish). When men in Spain or Puerto Rico escape (or sneak out of) the house to head to the local bar to play "just a few hands of cards", the game they are running off to play is rarely Tute, and is almost always Brisca, and "just a few hands" is rarely what it ends up being! We have some good card players in this group, so we should never find ourselves shying away from the games that make more of a demand on our mental faculties. It is true that if you don't use it, you are more liable to lose it.
