FreeDoko overview

    * description
    * features


The game ”Doppelkopf“ is a card game for four or more Players. One game will be played by four players.

Doppelkopf originates probably from the mostly in south germany played game ”Schafkopf“. Its name comes from the double (in German: Doppel) existence of each Card (Doppel-Schafkopf). Meanwhile Doppelkopf is played in whole germany, but mainly in north germany and the region of Rhein and Main.

Doppelkopf is a card game with 48 cards and at least 4 players. It is not unlike the card game ”Skat“. Doppelkopf is played with two normal Skat packs of cards (each has 32 cards) without sevens and eights. Here the players with the club queens are playing together. So there are while playing often new pairs.

Doppelkopf is like Skat a game which depends on the skills of each player. This guarantees a exciting and varied game event.
