Skat

Categories:  Card Games

This has nothing to do with identifying animal droppings. Skat is a card game that is played using a German set of cards but only to the Jack. It plays like whist and but has an horrendously complicated scoring system and odd rules that means it will take more than 15 minutes just to learn the rules.
