Skat! 2000 is a simulation of the card game skat. There are many variants, but here is the principle: The game is usually played with three persons. Two of the players are playing against a single one but are not allowed to communicate. Each card has a value and one suit is called "Trumpf". In every round each player looses one of his card and the one which played the "Trumpf" card with the highest value gets all the played cards. If no "Trumpf" is played the highest value scores. At the end each player counts the values of his cards. The goal for the single player is to get more points than the other two combined.

Skat! 2000 is based on the official rules of the German Skat Association of 1998 and 1999 but it also includes several popular variants including Kontra, Bock, Ramsch, Rum, Spitze and Offiziers-Skat. It also features six computer opponents with different playing skill and a multiplayer mode. For analysis purposes there is the possibility to distribute the cards freely. [source:mobygames]
