An abstract 1vs1 strategy game inspired by chess, roshambo (AKA RockPaperScissors), traditional italian card games and the awesome videogame 'Pawnbarian'.

  • Move your pieces on the board playing chess cards from your hand.
  • Attack your opponent pieces using the rock-paper-scissors restrictions.
  • Remember which cards your opponent played, to foresee his strategy.

#EASY to learn, HARD to master.

You need to carefully plan your actions, counter your opponent moves and also have a bit of luck to prevail and win in a bloody SCAMORRA game!

La Scamorra is a game created by Ivan Preziosi and inspired from chess, rock-paper-scissors, italian card games and the awesome videogame Pawnbarian.

Since the first day i've been playing it as much as i could with all my friends and fellow designers. So the actual ruleset can be considered a bit like a 'choralis opus' for which i should thank so many people! Thank you!
