This group is dedicated to the playing of Doppelkopf, a card game that emerged from a pool of murky origins one day in Germany and went on to become one of that country’s most beloved pastimes. It’s beloved in this country, too, but far less widely. If you’ve never played before or need a refresher, rules and other information can be found at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doppelkopf and http://www.pagat.com/schafk/doko.html. And if you don't feel like undertaking a thorough study of the rules online, we're happy to teach the game to new players.
