Posted by Marianne on Thursday, June 16, 2011, In : sport and entertainment 


In many places you can see posters advertising a Sueca tournament, where prices may be a lamb, suckling pig, a rooster or a bifana,  Sueca (also Portuguese for a Swedish woman) is a point-trick game with trumps and is probably the most widely played card game: it is played in most parks and coffee places where there are at least four people.
