You too can become master Skat players

Playing Skat is incredibly fun - but only after you’ve put in your penny and grasped the fundamentals!

Most experienced Skat players don’t have the time and patience to instruct new players in the high art of Skat. And for good reason: They’re having too much playing themselves.

That’s why so many attempts have been made to explain the rules of Skat in writing, or to just highlight the key points. Such undertakings are doomed from the start because Skat, with its complex of variables in both bidding and play, is simply not amenable to written explication.

Here on Skat Island we explain the traditional card game in a new way that everyone can understand. In addition to the rules, you’ll be versed in the relevant strategies and tactics. This is important because you’ll need a solid foundation to compete with more advanced players.

Be forewarned: Most old hands at the game won’t mince words in critiquing your play. But don’t be deterred - with our help everyone can learn to play Skat.
