From the Wikipedia article:

Micatio (also known as micare) is a variation of morra that attempts to lessen the element of chance by including the sight and speed of the player, a calculation of probabilities, and a certain psychological flair. In micatio the two players “each raise the fingers of the right hand, varying each time the number raised and the number kept down, and call aloud the total of the fingers raised by both”, until one player wins the round by guessing correctly. Winning the round earns the player one point. If the numbers thrown do not match the numbers shouted, no point is scored.

In the video shown above it seems to be sudden death. As soon as you lose a point your go is over and the winner stays on.

Below you can see how the old dudes do it. Its almost like they’re reading each others minds.
