UPDATE, 8 January 2013: Instead of Tombola we may play Scopa, an equally fun game that is also often played in Italian households over the holiday season. It's a traditional card game played with a special deck. Don't worry if you've never played -- it's easy to learn and, besides, we are playing for fun.
But if anyone has a Tombola set they can bring, let us know asap and we can play that.
The past two years our January Meetup has consisted of game-playing -- specifically, the Italian bingo-like game of chance called Tombola. So we're continuing the tradition.
It's common in Italy to play Tombola during the holiday season. Technically the holidays end on January 6. Oh well.
In addition to experiencing some Italian culture, the game is a great way to review numbers in Italian. If you've never played, don't worry. It's very easy to learn and we'll review the rules beforehand.
Afterwards, there will be time for general chit-chat, so think about something you might like to talk about.
