Briscola, Buffet & BYOB!

Sunday, November 3, 2019, from 4–8 p.m., at Sentieri Italiani

What’s That Game I Always See Those Italian Men Playing?

Briscola, along with Scopa, is one of those card games that almost everyone in Italy knows — it is also known in most other Mediterranean countries. Briscola is easy to learn but becoming good is not an easy task. The most common version has four players divided into two teams of two, battling against each other in a trick-taking game of wits and skill.

Learn the rules of this traditional Italian card game, then try a practice hand and play a tournament to find out who are the most skilled Briscola players in the group! The winning team of the tournament will receive a one-year Sentieri membership.

Bring your own beverage to enjoy along with a tasty buffet catered by Anto Pizza!

  • Fried Olives Ascolane
  • Arancini (rice balls)
  • Assortment of Pizzas
  • Don’t Forget — It’s BYOB!!!
