Scopa is an Italian card game and one of the two major national card games in Italy. The name of the game means “broom”, as the gameplay consists of “sweeping” all cards from the playing field. The game uses a standard Italian deck of forty cards, divided into four suits. The values of the cards vary from one to seven and three face up cards in each suit. The game takes place between two or four players but can be played by three, five or six.
