Have you ever played Italian card games before?

Since I was 8 years old and have never lost the thrill of it. I mainly play Scopa, but enjoy Briscola too. I have collected card decks from various regions but prefer the Piacentine deck.

What's your favorite Italian dish?

My homemade egg noodles, with a fresh tomato sauce. And just about anything else Italian

Do you want notices of events in Baltimore, DC, or both Baltimore AND DC?



I grew up playing this game with the men in my family and loved it instantly. I want to reach out to people looking for simple, clean fun and would love to share my favorite Italian card games with new friends.

What Joseph Z. is saying about this Meetup Group

This is a really easy game to learn and once you do, you are addicted. Better than poker, better than Uno, better than board games. Old Italian men cannot be wrong! Ciao!
