★★★ How to play ★★★
To get into action, push "Play" in the menu. You will then be presented with the gamelist, showing you all open tables. On the left side you can see how many rounds are played on each table. On the right side the selected rules are shown:
★ Tables with custom rules are marked with the red card backs. Click on it, to see which custom rules exactly are active.
★ Tables with bets have the Chips icon on them. The red number tells you how much you have to pay, the green number is the Jackpot that will be payed out 70% to the 1st place and 30% to the 2nd place at the end of the table.
★ The percentage value on some tables shows you the minimum loyalty that is required to join the table. Loyalty decreases if you leave tables during play and automatically replenishes slowly over time.
Now click on a table to join it. The game starts as soon as enough players have joined. Remember that in Skat Palace you only play with real people. At the end of each round you see the game summary that shows you how the scores are distributed. Furthermore you can see a small star next to your name. It represents the adjustment of your skill rating. You receive Star points for victories and lose Star points for losing game rounds. If you gather enough Star points, you will receive another Star in your profile. You can earn up to 5 Stars in total!
All your games are automatically recorded in our league. Hit "League" in the menu and there "Mein Rank" to check your current position. Every 3 months we award the Quarter-Champion and a new season starts. Additionally, each month we award the player with the most Chips won, each day the player with the most scores and furthermore we display the best players live from the last hour prominently in the menu, visible to all players.
