    We here at TA share a love for video games. If you're like me, you also share a love of games that are not digital. That are card based, but what happens when those two loves are brought together in a beautiful combination of old and new technology.

    You get Scopa 09! Have I ever heard of this game? No. Why? Because it's from Italy. Sadly I have yet to visit Italy, but with the creation of Scopa 09, I have an opportunity now to play a card game I knew nothing about from a beautiful country I have never been to.

    Thank you iPhone! You help make the world a smaller more joyous place.:)

    Agreed. ^ ^

    I highly recommend Briscas if you haven't seen or tried it yet.

    The cards remind me a bit of Tarot cards to be honest even though I know that's not the intention.

    Interesting looking card game.

    Italy
    These are the traditional italian cards :) (from naples, to be precise... they change slightly in design in other parts of the country, but the "napoletane" are the most widely known and used).

    Scopa is a nice game, and probably the one with the simplest set of rules among the traditional italian card games. It's also the only one I've ever learned to play :rolleyes:
