Skat Insel

If you're interested in learning to play Skat ("Skat ist das deutscheste aller Kartenspiele") and practicing your German at the same time, there's a very nice tutorial here:


It's long, and will probably take a few days to play through entirely, assuming you break it up into sessions. As you might infer, the pace of the lessons is slow, and begins from the absolute beginning, but it is thorough.

It's also kid-friendly, so you get a lot of Umgangssprache, but nothing coarse. You'll pick up a ton of terms and phrases for card playing, games in general, and Skat in particular.

It's part of a larger Skat website, the home page of which is here: https://www.skatinsel.de/home

Gut Blatt!

Aah, childhood memories!

If you like really silly comedy you might enjoy Ottos Skatgymnastik:



Have you also seen the famous Loriot Skat sketch? google: Loriot Skatrunde https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x2xiyqc One needs to already understand how to play Skat to see why this sketch is funny. Loriot was a funny German comedian. I also like his 4.5 Minute Egg sketch. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=57LsW00c1Oo


Okay, that kinda neat!


I see there is also by the same person a youtube Skat Lernen channel with recently updated videos. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5pFGjXydPM_5Dblr-n4yQQ
