Event 700: Italian Card Games at Caribou Coffee in Westlake

As always, we are happy to teach new players, so if you do not yet know any of these games, come on out and learn. Nearly everyone in the group learned these games after joining the group, so you are definitely not alone!

To date, we have learned a total of eight Italian card games:

  • Scopa (2, 3, 4, or 6 players)
  • Briscola(2-6 players)
  • Scarto (3 players)
  • Tressette (2-4 players)
  • Ottocento (4 players)
  • Terziglio (3 players)
  • Madrasso (4 players)
  • Sette e Mezzo (2 or more players)

Tonight we will play whichever of them fits our number of attendees and/or is in most demand. There is always the possibility of playing more than one!

    A very small group for an Italian night, but that has been a trend with all events lately. We had a blast playing Briscola, with which Gino was already familiar. Great to play with someone who already "gets" this very anarchic game! We then taught him how to play Scopa, which I was surprised to learn he didn't already know. Finished off the night by teaching both Dena and Gino how to play Scarto, a very old Tarocchi game that the club has not played in a very long time. It was good to revisit it!

    Looks like a small group this week. Perhaps a good chance to revisit Scarto. It has been a very long time since we have played.

      And maybe Terziglio as well. We'll wait and see what our final numbers are. Either way, event #700!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
