Needs a date and time

Needs a location

Dear Members, In an effort to provide you with more engaging events, we were wondering if you would like to learn and play a fun card game! Briscola is an old Sicilian card game played with 2, 4 or 6 players. The object of the game is to get as many points as possible. For more info on the game please see: http://www.pagat.com/aceten/briscola.html it's a very simple game to learn and everyone who plays it simply loves it! If we have enough players we will select a venue and time. Thanks
