Awesome little old Italian Game

Ok first off with the addition of the numbers it makes it easy for us Americans to memorize the rankings of cards rather than trying to remember that three outranks a horse or a King beats a horse. 1 > 3 > 12 > 11 > 10 > 7 > 6 > 4 > 2. And just need to know 1 = 11 pts, 3 = 10 pts, 12 = 4 pts, 11 = 3 pts, 10 = 2 pts and rest are worth zero points. The graphics and animations are worlds beyond the other briscola apps in the app store. Also with the flaming bottom of card indicating matching the trump card helps out too. Truco I bought I was way outta my league with but Briscas is simple enough to learn that even a dumb American average joe like myself can learn it quick and have an enjoyable time playing. They do need to have it save current game progress so upon exiting one can resume their game. Also I suggested they put a popup reference while playing the game if one needs it to remind them of point values and/or card rankings for newbies.

Nostalgia

I remember when I played this in high school here in PR. Now I must say this is a very nice recreation of the game. But there can be some improvements. Like other people have said the 7/2 cards swap rule(swapping the trump suit card marker with a 7 trump suit card if the number is higher or with a 2 if the number is 7 or lower) would be a good addition. Also the "fight for" or swap(se lucha o se cambia) rule for when 3/1 cards are designated as trump suit markers is also good for an addition. And the "Royal Flush" autowin rule(when a player has the 12/3/1 card combination of the trump suit in his hand) would be great. Also the "clash" autowin rule(when an opposing player plays the 3 card of the trump suit and you play the 1 card of the trump suit on top) would be good too.
Another good additon would be to be able to play a 4 player game in either singles or team mode. Lastly online multiplayer would be a blast. Whew that was long...

WiFi Network Error

For those who have the same doubts, the 2 player version is for 2 iPhones or iPod Touch, NOT to play with online players or anything similar. You can play with a friend who has another iPhone or iPod Touch right in front of you connected on the SAME WiFi device. Hope this helps!! It's a GREAT game!!
