Scopa (in English “broom”) is a classic Italian card game with origins dating back to the 18th century.

Objectif du jeu

4 personnes jouent par binôme avec le jeu espagnol de 40 cartes (8 et 9 non incluses).

The object of the game is to score points by capturing cards and “sweeping” the card table. A capture is made by matching the value of a card in your hand to the sum of one or more cards on the table.

The points depend on the cards obtained and the actions performed. Le premier binôme à atteindre 11 points remporte la partie. In the event of a tie, play will continue until the tie is broken.

Comment jouer au jeu Scopa

The game begins by dealing 3 cards to each player and placing 4 cards face up on the table.

On their turn, each player must play a card from their hand and combine it with one or more cards on the table. In order of priority:

  1. Combinations with 1 card on the table (cards with the same value).
  2. Combinations with 2 or more cards on the table.

If a player cannot make any combination, they must discard one card and place it face up on the board.

When the players have no more cards, 3 cards are dealt again to each player. This is repeated until there are no cards left in the deck.

At the end of the round, the player who made the last move draws the remaining cards from the table. After this, the round is scored, and the deal progresses to the next player on the right.


If a player succeeds in capturing all the cards on the table (“sweeps” the table), they get a “scopa” and score 1 extra point. The “scopa” made with the last card does not score a point.

Nombre de points

After each round, players score points according to the cards and “scopas” obtained.
