Skat is a card game for 3 players that was created in the “Skat-city” of Altenburg in 1820 from Sheepshead It was the composer Richard Strauss's favourite card game and is widespread in Germany, where numerous tournaments are played. The name originates from “scartare” (to discard) and Skat refers to the pile that the single player takes in order to discard other cards.

To win at Skat, you need more than 60 points in tricks or to have taken no tricks in Null Games. The game is always played with a single player against the two opponents. Bidding is used to find the player to take on the role of Soloist and opposing team and you must ensure that you do not overbid. The Soloist is the player who makes the highest bid.

At first glance, Skat appears very complicated, but it is the complexity and required strategic thinking that make the game exciting. Take part in this entertaining German classic!
