About

Palace of Cards is the online platform for card game enthusiasts of classic card games. Play 6 distinct games: Rummy, Solitaire, Mau-Mau (Crazy 8s), Skat, Sheepshead and Doppelkopf, each with its own community and ranking systems. Play with or against your friends or meet new people in the game. Join clubs to discuss the game and reach the top in our club league or fight on your own in the solo leagues. Each game comes with a variety of customizable rules so that you can play the games the way that you like them best. We offer statistics that give you valuable insights to help you improve your skill, tournaments if you like a challenge, help and tutorials to get you started, private tables with friends, live awards for the best players and much more. RUMMYRummy, the game for your whole family. Collect and match groups of cards and be the first to play all their cards in melds. The pacing is relaxed and you will have plenty of time to finish your turn. If you prefer you can join a private table with additional rules like “Knocking”, “No Jokers”, “Cyclic Laying” or any combination of the available custom rules. Play Rummy the way you like it. SOLITAIRESolitaire is the world famous casual puzzle game. But what seems to be a quite lonesome activity on other platforms is a multiplayer experience you shouldn't miss out. Every player will receive the same set of cards and the one to solve it in the most efficient way wins the game. Take some time and consider your move. In the end, this move can separate the losers from the winners. And if the standard game is not your taste, try some custom rules, for example “Turn Three”, “Relaxed” (all cards revealed) or “Jokers”. Or give a try to “Easthaven”, the hardest Solitaire variant we could find. MAU-MAU (CRAZY EIGHTS)Who doesn’t know it, the game with which you bring your friends to the boiling point? Your opponent places a Seven? Bad for him, you also have one – draw 4 cards from the stack, my friend. Mau-Mau (Crazy Eights) has always put your friendships to a test but also bound them even more. At the Palace of Cards, you will meet new and old friends as alike. Don't like our default rule set? Play with “Jack on Jack”, “Idiot Mau-Mau”, "Nines Switch Direction”, “Extra turn on Ace” and many more. We don’t really care, as long you have fun. We promise you will. SKATThe pub classic is famous, especially in Germany. This game has received the highest score for any card game on boardgamegeek.com and there is a reason why. Strategy and tactical thinking are required if you want to take on the ladder in the Palace. The standard tables follow the international Skat tournament ruleset but you also can try our custom rules like “Contra and Re”, “Ramsch” and many other famous variants. Join a club to discuss and learn with advanced players or analyze your games in our replay feature. You can always improve your skills by keeping track with your statistics or talk to other players to get the best tips and tricks. So, take your cards and join a table! SHEEPSHEADIf you love Bavaria this game is for you. As the ancestor of Skat, Sheepshead is the favorite card game of Bavarians and Franconians and is perceived as cultural heritage. It is regularly played with the Bavarian or Franconian card deck, which look very different to regular card decks. This tradition adds a unique flair to the game. Thus it fits perfectly that Sheepshead features a whole lot of mostly funny pearls of wisdom like: “Schene Leit ham scho oiwei schiache Kartn”. Well, you could try to translate this (and fail) but you also could join the game and ask a real Bavarian. Take your cards to the hand and play up! DOPPELKOPFDoppelkopf is a trick-taking card game with a twist. Four players compete against each other in teams of two, but the teams are unknown at the beginning of every round. Every card exists twice and the players with the queens of clubs are playing together. Only when the first queen of clubs has been played, the second player knows his partner and can start to give him hints with his cards. Can you identify your partner fast enough before the game is lost? But don't let your opponents deceive you...

"Am an 86 million Year of construction, have been playing Rummé not only since this Game, but since Childhood until modern Times" But I have never had such a ... I say ..., "strange" card Awarding ... After more than 125 Hours, I can see by my start hand, who will win with high Probability ... > Because the worse your own Hand is (so little to no Groups), is in the rule of the Players who sit right next to one in the 3 ° round , finished with a HandRommé ... > or, if you have lost three times in a row, you get at least 2 to 4 Jokers on the starting hand to join Cards pairs that are more than just Good together. > then that drawing cards that you already have or have just thrown away-(I'm not talking about cards that Discard my Fellow players here) doesn't understand me wrong here, of course I'm Aware that you can pull Cards double, "BUT!, but not 5 rounds in a row and The one in 2 of 3 passes ... And that about all 4 To 5 tables with jewals 2 new Players-I've had something like that in the last 20 Years maybe in a Game, All a Leap year but the most common here is plain and simple, "ridiculous"-And then that's "pay to win"? phew.. So after €5/5 "Investment ..." Almost every round at least 1 to 2 Jokers on hand and a card Sheet that fits so well that you need only one or 2 cards from the Beginning, only one or 2 cards to win ... Oh and double you only pull if you can use them ... Whether that is then "pay to Win" should everyone decide for themselves. > everything else in the Game Description is right so far > the first 1400 (about the first 110 Hours) round are already Fun, but after that I would Recommend creating a new Acc than spending €5b, especially since you get enough Chips, for the Daily login.

Unfortunately not recommended. There are often people playing together, probably with 2 Laptops and sitting next to each other. So I've bought Chips more often and then, strangely, lost them quickly again. You somehow only get bad Cards which doesn't happen when playing with friends in the Originality. Furthermore, many Of my Players here have already confirmed that the Prov's get better and better cards and mostly win. It can't be that you're constantly just getting bad Cards. If you have a reasonably reasonable Leaf, it is exactly against you and you actually lose with a good leaf. I once complained to them and asked how that can be. In Response, I got to start with small stakes and then slowly increase myself. But it is the case that I am playing Skat for 45 Years and not, like their Opinion, probably still has to practice. From the Graphic point of view, the Game is really top. But that's also what lures the Players. I have now gambled away The last 3 Week.8 € and not over 20 Points the Game-.I have said and wride.3 x the first Place and some score the 2nd place. From now on, I will only play with the Day points and certainly don't spend a Penny on them any more. Unfortunately, it's the same with the whole rest of the game here. It also annoys me, like many others here, that you can't transfer Points to other Games. Well, I just give everyone the Tip here not to get in on amounts of Money and buy an excessively large amount of Chips, unfortunately you only have the Loss, either way of it, because you can't return Chips either way. I will probably also banish this Palace, from my PC. Too bad it is actually because I really like to play Skat and also other Games. Mau Mau, Dko u.s.w.Es really can't go with right things, which you lose 90%. As you say, nothing is for otherwise only here you pay again and again on it.
