Scopa Counting

I’ve been re-learning the Italian card game, Scopa! as played in Nancy Drew: The Phantom of Venice. Fan Arglefumph plays it in his walk through video here:

I’m trying to explain how to tally up the points, and I must say, it is rather complicated. REALLY complicated. I’m glad that Enrico in the game adds it all up for you!

Here’s a picture of my own deck that I’ve opened up and wish to play in real life:

    I know this game, I have actually played it in real life several times.

    I didn’t know it existed as a real life card game! That must be so much fun!

    I have my own deck! I taught my whole family and they are all now obsessed. We get so competitive with it. When I am calculating the score I always imitate Enrico just for fun.

    I Love Arglefumph! His walk throughs are so funny.
    My favorite so far is the “Sea of Darkness” walk through.

    Scopa? Don’t worry; I’m still trying to figure out poker.
    I assume the point system is the same.
