"No other card game combines the elements of skill, psychology and chance as successfully as Skat."  --Joe Wergin, author

Welcome to Northeast Ohio’s online home for Skat! Skat is the King of Card Games, unique in its ability to rival both the thrill and calculated risk taking of poker and the skill level and concentration demands of contract bridge!  The Cleveland Skat Club is a group of regular Skat players devoted to the enjoyment of the game in a league-style competitive setting. We are similar to other leagues (golf, bowling, bridge, etc.) except that we play a much more interesting game!

We are an organized Skat club whose goals are to:

      Recruit and teach newer players who already love to play card games and are looking for a new and exciting challenge and meeting like-minded people.

      Promote the regular and competitive play of Skat through an organized competitive league with weekly meetings and occasional tournaments.

      Develop our regular players into excellent competitors who can compete in tournaments organized by the International Skat Players Association throughout North America and the rest of the world.

      Form and nurture lasting friendships among our players while promoting the highest levels of sportsmanship and fellowship.

      Have fun playing a fantastic game of cards!

 

New to Skat? If you grew up here in North America, you may never have even have heard of the game. But if you love playing cards, there is a very good chance you will enjoy playing Skat. If you are a numbers-oriented, strategy-minded, puzzle-solving type of card player, there is an excellent chance you will enjoy Skat.

Want to learn more? If you don’t know how to play, come to one of our “Skat School” nights and we’ll show you the rules and the basic strategies.

Are you already a seasoned player? Come to one of our “Club Nights” and take on our tournament-caliber players. Club nights are played by International Skat Order (ISO) rules. These rules allow for no kontra/rekontra, no ramsch, but we do play these variations for social games. As a group we occasionally dabble in variations such as Pub Skat, Bauern Skat, Texas Skat, American (Tournee) Skat, Danish Skat, Spitze and Schieberamsch.  Many of our members also enjoy playing Sheepshead.

Come join us for a new and exciting card playing experience!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
