Briscola is an Italian card game,(but it can also be played with American cards), that can be played with 4 players, 2 teams of 2.

Chess is art, this is the basis for our love of the game. Checkers too may be art, but personally i don't know enough about checkers to say.

My favorite subjects are: cosmology, from newton to string theory. chess, from morphy to topalov. food, from home cookin' to gourmet restaurants. and i'll stop there

briscola: <WannaBe>: <briscola> If 0-1 wins, then the game is over. Team White have resigned. I'm sorry I got confused, I thought people were voting for 1-0. !

briscola: The problem with deciding who is "better" between players of this caliber is that the word: better, on some level, loses its meaning. Someone may be better on a particular day, but It is sort of like asking who's better: Michelangelo or DaVinci? Newton or Einstein? It would be ...

briscola: <cotdt>: <You mean you want Topalov to "pull" out, or get a win?> A win of course!! Although, I must say, this tournament has given me a new found respect for Kramnik. Amateurs and the best players in the world share one thing in common (besides their love of the ...

briscola: GrandMasters dominate these World Matches, exhibited here by's GAME of the Day against the backdrop of the coming The World v. Nikel match Big differences between the two are Nikel is obviously not Kasparov, and The World has changed a lot since '99, (maturing as all

briscola: Bxh2 shows the complete unpredictability of chess... Who would have thought that that move would have been played in Game 1 of the World Championship Match between these two players? No one would have ever guessed that and it also illustrates the metaphysical dimension of chess ...
