* Saccomazzone Competition: the Gioco del Saccomazzone which literally translates to “bundle of sack” was a game played during the interludes of rustic dances.

6:00 pm Feast

* CONTRADE: Peace, Love, War-  A Game of Feasting Subterfuge

In 16th century Ferraro Italy, Household alliances were made and broken at feasts. Note passing was the titillating game of the court. A note delicately passed to a member of another Contrade or household could be the building blocks of a new empire or the destruction of an age-old one. In this game, each interaction with another table must be made using written notes delivered by servers only. The servers have no allegiance to any specific Contrade; for the purpose of this game, they are mercenaries. Their services can be bought and sold. Notes are the best way to gain points. This game of intrigue will have one winning “Contrade” (aka table).The winning table will receive a delicious delicacy for their efforts.

Each of the main removes shall have their own round of challenges. See below to get a head start on winning!
