Scopa/Escoba is a card game for two to four players. The game is played with a deck of 40 cards in four suits. Players can choose between a French and an Italian/Spanish deck of cards. In games with four players, two teams are formed automatically.

Each player receives three cards. Four further cards are laid out face up on the table. The player, whose turn it is, must attempt to take one or more cards from the table using one of the cards in his/her hand. Once all of the players have played all three of their cards, three more are taken from the deck. When no more cards are available, the points accumulated by the players are totalled up. Depending on the totals, either a winner is declared or the cards are re-dealt.

The aim of the game is to take as many tricks as possible and reach at least 11 points when playing Scopa and 21 when playing Escoba.
