About The Event
Join us for an Italian Tombolata, right before Christmas ponsored by Dolce Sicilia!
On Tuesday, December 22th from 6 PM to 7 PM, we are going to play “Tombola” all together, a famous board game similar to bingo that has its origins in Southern Italy.
Tombola is traditionally played during Christmas time, with the whole family around a table, and children shouting for their prizes!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
To play this game, each player needs to buy his/her own “cartella” (card). Someone is in charge of the board and will draw the numbers from a bag. The bord is called “La Smorfia”, which means that each number has a funny nickname in Neapolitan.
Every time a number on the player’s card is called, he/she has to cover it with a piece of short pasta or a bean (that’s the Italian tradition!).
Prizes are assigned for:
- "quaterna", four numbers on the same row.
- "cinquina", five numbers on the same row.
- "tombola", all numbers on the card.
