Since many of us are competing in Las Vegas, we will play on Tuesday night this week. Note the half-hour earlier start time.
Our regular venue, the Cleveland Männerchor is an authentic German social club serving great food and drink in a card-friendly atmosphere! We start a bit later, 7:00pm, making it easier for players to join us and taking advantage of our venue's late closing time!
This is our regular weekly Skat game where we play in a friendly, but competitive setting for prizes. Newer players are encouraged to check out our "Skat School" sessions to develop their skills before attempting "Club Nights". "Rookie" players who are newer to Skat and have not yet won a prize are eligible to compete at a reduced fee of just $1.
Since we will be playing organized competition within the CSC, we will be following all rules of the International Skat Order (aka International Rules). The ISO is available for viewing here:
We will be charging a $3 fee for CSC play ($1 for Rookies), all of which will be paid right back as prizes to the top 25% scoring participants at each event. We will also be assessing a “bump money” fee of $0.25 per lost hand in order to pay for the cards, year-end prizes and other expenses. Rookie players do not pay bump money.
