Book Synopsis
About the book: Morra was known to the ancient Romans and is popular around the world. In the Bible, it may have been referred to as “casting lots.” In ancient Rome, it was called Micatio, and playing it was referred to as micare digitis; literally, “to flash with the fingers.” As time passed, the name became morra, a corruption of the verb micare. The game was so common in ancient Rome that there was a proverb used to denote an honest person which made reference to it: dignus est quicum in tenebris mices, literally, “he is a worthy man with whom you could play micatio in the dark.” Micatio became so common that it came to be used to settle disputes over the sale of merchandise in the Roman forum. Roman colonies were located in Europe, Asia and Africa - all roads lead to Rome.

…Fast forward to the 20th Century: The game came to America. Discover for yourself, here on these pages, this ancient hand and word game - Morra. Enjoy!
