9781330083970: Skat Up to Date (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Skat Up to Date

Owing to the efforts of the German and the American Skat Leagues, working in harmony, the game of Skat is now reduced to a uniform system and it is probable that there will be little or no further change in the principles of play or the methods of scoring.

Skat is played with a thirty-two-card pack, the rank of the cards being Ace, Ten, King, Queen, Nine, Eight, Seven. The four Jacks are always the best trumps, no matter what the trump suit may be, and these four Jacks always outrank each other in the same order: - Clubs, Spades, Hearts, and Diamonds; Clubs being the best. There are several ways of determining what the trump suit shall be in each deal, each method making a distinctive game as it is called.

The Players.

Each player is for himself, and the object is to secure an individual score for the greatest number of points won. These points have a value previously agreed upon. In the big tournaments it is a fourth of a cent.

There are only three active players in each deal, one of whom secures the privilege of playing against the two others by outbidding them. The successful bidder is called the player, and he names the game that shall be played in that hand; and it is the value of that game which he wins from (or loses to) each of the others at the table.

Four or five persons can belong to the table, taking turns to sit out for one deal, but still sharing in the fortunes of the hands that they do not actually play, winning from or losing to the successful bidder. Each deal is a game in itself, but there must be an equal number of rounds, so that each player at the table shall deal the same number of times. In tournaments, twenty rounds are played, which makes eighty deals with four at the table; sixty deals with three only.

Any one can deal the first hand, after which the deal passes to the left. The score-keeper should sit on the right of the first dealer, so that his deal shall mark the end of a round.
