Skat players meet at Club Loreley every Thursday, with one group playing from 12-5:00 p.m. and a second group playing from 6:30-9:00 p.m. Those interested to play should talk to Angelika at the bar in our Lounge.
Skat is the national card game of Germany, and one of the best card games for 3 players. It was invented around 1810 in the town of Altenburg, about 40km south of Leipzig, Germany, by the members of the Brommesche Tarok-Gesellschaft. They adapted the existing local game Schafkopf by adding features of the then popular games Tarok and l'Hombre. Altenburg is still considered the home of Skat and has a fountain dedicated to the game.
