Scopa is a classic Italian game that comes from 1522, played with a 40 card deck, 10 cards in four different suits (as the traditional Spanish deck). The suits in a traditional Scopa deck are swords, cups, clubs (literal clubs), and coins. Each suit has cards ranked from ace to seven and three face cards: The King, The Knight, and The Squire (or in some decks, The Lady).
The Spiel edition of Scopa replaces the traditional suits with game components: dice, dominoes, clubs (the card suit), and meeples.
If the project is funded, the Scopa deck will be printed at Ludo Fact, a German printer, using the highest quality card stock and linen finish and bridge size. It will have 40 cards (or 52 if it gets a funding stretch goal).
