First Croatian themed Briškula card deck now out

First Croatian themed Briškula card deck (Briškula1)

One of the most popular card games played in Dalmatia is the Italian game of Briscola. 

Called Briškula in Croatia, the game is a trick-taking, Ace-Ten card game which is played between 2 – 6 players with an Italian card deck.  

A deck consists of forty cards, divided into four suits: coins (Denari in Italian) swords (Spade), cups (Coppe) and clubs (sometimes batons, bats or Bastoni). 

There are three face cards in each suit: Knave (Fante), Knight (Cavallo), and King (Re). A Knave is a lone human figure standing. The Knight is a human figure riding a horse. The King is a human figure wearing a crown.

The game is played all over Croatia but mainly in Dalmatia using the original Italian deck. Now the first Croatian themed Briškula card deck has been created. 

The 100% plastic, professional-grade playing cards feature hand-drawn Croatian medieval artwork.
