Skat is the most popular card game in Germany, but also well known all over the world.
Three players form two counter parties, which are playing against each other. The Declarer (player which is playing alone) is determined by bidding against the other players. Bidding means, each player estimates a bid value of its card deck and tries to outbid the other players. The bid value is a combination of high trumps (jacks) and the bidded suit (trump suit), with exception of Grand and Null games. In Grand games only Jacks are trump, Null games don't have trumps and have a fixed bid value.
The goal of a game is, to earn the most points. Normally a game is won by the declarer, if it achieves 61 points (simple games). In exceptional cases the declarer has to achieve 91 ("Schneider") points, to get all tricks of a game ("Schwarz") or to get no trick (Null games). A Series consistes of 36 games (48 games if four players are playing a Series). Goal of a Skat is, to have the most points at the end of a Series.
The finally result will be determined by using the Fabian-Seger-System. I.e. for each won game, the declarer gets 50 bonus points. For each lost game of the declarer, the counter party gets 40 bonus points.
