Although school but is basically an easy game, as I try to learn on my own questions kept coming up that I couldn't find answers to. Playing on this app has help me figure out some things, although I'm still confused about the scoring. I know there are different scoring methods which probably makes it even more confusing. I like how you can choose which card design to use and play with 1 to 4 players.
Good quality app. Plays a mean game of Scopa. No bells and whistles, no internet connection needed. Although I do have a question for the devs- how do you have a difficulty selection on a game that owes so much to chance? In terms of skill, the digital opponent does not seem to pass on operatunity even on easy mode, so how does the difficulty level change?
Ever since my last maintenance download, I have been experiencing a delay with the playing of my moves, and when I score a Scopa the game does not show a coin drop. Plus I would love to be able to connect with friends to plan them on the app through a remote connection. With all that said, I really love this Scopa app!!!!!
I’ve only had the chance to play the game in real life only a handful of times and was put to shame by some seasoned Neapolitans. Luckily, with the help of this app, I will be able to hold my own next time I’m in Napoli. Functionality is great! But the speed at which I’ve seen this game played in the streets of Napoli is dizzying. One more faster speed setting would be wonderful. Multiplayer (person to person) and team modes would be cool to see as well.
I downloaded this game a few years ago and love it. I recently bought a new iPad and this version is the closest to the one I had but the screen and calculations are very slow. I have to tap on my card multiple times or wait several seconds until my choice is accepted. Is there anything I can do to fix this lag in the game. It is very frustrating as the I have no problem with original.
Fast moving and challenging at many levels. The games are over quickly so you can enjoy this during a break of unwind after work. I have not played with other humans yet but at least this gets me familiar with the game.
There is some lag when playing cards which is why I only gave it 4 stars. This game is really worthy of 5 stars but there is a bug causing it to be much slower than it used to be. That said, I would still recommend this over all the other Scopa games out there.
Great game, two suggestions to get the last star... one is to create an option with teams 2v2 and the other is to fix an issue with prime calculations. It always seems to get the prime winner correct, but sometimes it assigns zero prime points where a person has a seven or a six and should therefore get either 21 or 18 points, right?
I learned Scopa myself. Not Italian here but love the game. I play with actual physical cards with a friend (I have several Italian style cards at home) but this is a great exercise. Too bad you can’t play with actual people online. I love the variety of the different styles of the cards. My favorite is Trevigiane and Napoletane
Excellent game for my dad with dementia. He can't remember what he had for lunch, but remembers the rules to the game that he has always played. This game helps keep him busy and thinking. I also enjoy playing it to wind down before bed.
I agree with all the other negative reviews that the game clearly ensures player one has the right cards every game. Also and equally frustrating is the glitch that regularly deals more than 4 of the knights. I’ve play games with the game dealing 6 or 7 knights in one round. Unless you like playing purposely frustrating and glitchy games, you won’t like this one.
I was introduced to Scopa by my fiancée’s Italian grandma, and Scopa! is by far the best app for playing it (and I tried all the ones I could find). It’s very close to the real deal, with enough customization to keep it interesting each time.
I love this game because it reminds me of my Italian mother who taught me how to play. Only four stars because I wish it moved faster. Even at "fastest" setting, it's on the slow side. Will not delete, as I love it!
I love scopa. I play this when nobody will play with me. Sometimes the game doesn’t count my scopa or 7 of gold. Sometimes the 7 of gold gets passed around several times during the game too which is weird. Good substitute for a quick scupa fix
I have played this game in real life and it is a lot of fun although on the app I am unsure how to play with my friends. I have added them as a friend but do not know how to play around against them. If you know the answer please respond. Thank you so much.
The traditional Italian “Scopa” card game. You can play against one, two or three opponents controlled by your device, with three different ability levels. Includes several Italian regional cards, and the French and Spanish ones. This app uses VoiceOver to improve its accessibility.
