On Sunday afternoon November 17, twenty-two VICA members joined together at the Ridgewood Clubhouse in South Burlington to learn how to play Italy’s most popular card game “Scopa”. Most players were new to the game but fortunately some experienced players joined to guide the group in playing and scoring.
Everyone had the opportunity to play and a good time was had by all. Everyone suggested that we hold more Scopa events and expand it to include other popular Italian card games like Briscola. Future opportunities to learn and play popular Italian card games will be announced to members through email “On the Spot” and on the VICA website (www.italiansinvermont.org)
