Come and join if you want to learn how to play the GERMAN NATIONAL card game – I teach it to YOU!

#2nd chance

CHALLENGING, THRILLING & BIG FUN for 3 (or 4) people!

*** WARNING: Please consider that it takes a few hours to learn the rules, depending on your card game knowledge. It's a big advantage if you already know another trick-taking game. You have to be a bit tough and eager to learn it. Don't expect it to be simple. :) ***

SKAT is considered one of the best and most interesting card games for 3 or 4 players. It is 'the king of German card games' which is also popular in big parts of Poland. This trick-taking game is played with only 32 cards and is yet very rich in variety – more than the Austrian/Bavarian 'Schnapsen', for example. A game takes about 5 minutes and less if you are a skilful player. But it might take a whole evening (or even two) to learn it, depending on your background knowledge. – Trust me, it's worth it!
SKAT helped me a lot to get by with my school carreer back then. ;-)
I am happy to begin playing again after suffering from the lack of it here in Vienna. PLAY ON, DUDES!

See you on the riverside soon!
