User guide

Basics

The game begins with 32 cards. 10 cards are dealt to each of the 3 players and 2 cards remain face down to form what is known as the skat.

Followed by the dealing is the auction, which is also the most important steps of the game.

Players get to determine who will play solo against the 2 other players by bidding. Whoever bids the highest gets to play solo and pick the trump suit.

Standard trick taking rules apply:

  • You must follow suit to the card led, if possible.
  • If unable to follow suit, you can play any card.
  • The trick is won by the highest trump played to it. If no trumps are played, then the trick goes to the highest card of the suit led.

The main objective of the solo player is not to win most of the 10 tricks, rather to win tricks containing as many card-points as possible.

Scoring

The cards have a total of 120 points and the solo player must obtain at least 61 of them.

In additional to that the game incoperates an unique scoring system, where multipliers apply depending on the situation.

There are also different usages of the skat, which the solo player has access to. You can learn more about it here.
