Lieutenant Skat (from German “Offiziersskat”) is a fun and engaging card game for two players. It can be played against a human opponent or the computer.
The game is played using a single deck of cards. Cards are shuffled and distributed amongst the players in such a way that half of them are face down and half of them are open. Each participant plays one of the open cards per turn. As soon as all the cards are played the round ends and points are calculated and awarded.
The objective in this game is to score more than 60 points in a single game.
Once dealing is finished each player ends up with 16 cards each. Cards are displayed in two horizontal rows – four cards per row. Half of the cards are face down and half are face up. As a player you can see the opponent’s cards as well as your own. You can make a move then by clicking on any of your cards which are currently face up. The opponent has to reply by choosing a corresponding card form his/her own stack.
Once the exchange is finished values of the played cards are evaluated and either you or your opponent is awarded points. The game is complete in 16 rounds (when all of your and your opponent’s cards have been played). After the game ends your score is being compared to that of your opponent and the player with the higher score wins the round.
