The Revival and Survival of ‘A Morra’

Dernière mise à jour de cette page le 23/10/2013

To revive and perpetuate a choice of entertainment originating from ancient times, has been the choice of Alex Casamarte, President of the Association Corsica Morra – based just outside of Ajaccio in Sarrola-Carcopino, and now reaching over 150 members.

But, what is this game ?

‘A Morra’ is a hand game, (casting lots) played by two players and dating back to the times of ancient Rome and Greece.Face to face, and with one hand only, the two players in turn announce a number, showing their fingers, whoever announces the sum of the two hands, wins (from 2 to10) – if the correct number is not announced the game continues. Teams contribute to the winning of matches, and are composed of two or three people, and a match is won when there are two winning sets. Twenty five possibilities are concerned, where combinations enter. Depending on the region, there can be variations within the rules, so, harmonising comes into account when championships take place – for there are championships too! to be noted however, this game is not known all over the island, oddly enough there are regions where it was never played.
