Schnapsen or Webschnapsen belongs just like Sixty-Six to the Bézique games. Bézique was played at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century in France and England and was Winton Churchill's favourite card game. The name 'Schnapsen' derives from 'to snap', which means take a trick with a trump. Schnapsen is wide-spread in Germany, Austria and Hungary and one of the most popular Austrian card games.

The aim of the game is to reach 66 points with tricks and announcements as quickly as possible. 2 players play with Ace, Ten, King, Queen, Jack and Nine in 4 suits, a total of 20 cards. The player who reaches 66 points first or takes the last trick wins the game. The points will be written down from top (7 points) to bottom (0 points). The winner will write off between 1 and 3 points per round depending on how many points the loser has collected with tricks and announcements.
