This is your last chance to learn how to play Scopone Scientifico, tournament style, with Luisa & Ileana. Don't miss it!

Join us on Thursday, December 7th, from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm, for a great evening of fun playing a traditional Italian card game while enjoying an authentic aperitivo Italian style.

Luisa and Ileana will guide you while you play scopone scientifico, tournament style (NO PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE NEEDED). Scopone scientifico is a variant of the popular scopa, a card game (gioco di carte) that every true Italian must master. And this goes along with an Italian aperitivo, perfect to chill on a Thursday evening. 

The card games scopa and scopone scientifico are a big fundament of the Italian culture. Grandparents teach them to their grandchildren at an early age, and Luisa and Ileana themselves grew up playing this game in Italy with their grandparents!    

This event is open to all ICC members and non-members. Any level of Italian proficiency - the game and the rules will be explained in English by Luisa & Ileana -.  NO PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE NEEDED in the game of Scopone, and if you are a PRO come and show off your skills. It’s a simple yet fun and interesting game played in pairs but if you are a single player, we will pair you with another one. PRIZES will be awarded to the winners couple of the evening!

Once you have signed up the rules of the game will be emailed to you.
