Ever played the German Card Game Skat? It is similar to Bridge but also requires a kind of poker, considerable skill, cooperation and a good memory.
Above all, it is a very entertaining game as the players measure their individual skill levels against each other.
We are a group of 35-40 mostly Germans and at different skill levels meeting once a week on Wednesdays at @ 07:00PM. We welcome beginners and if we get enough interest will be hosting tutorials for the lesser experienced players.
