A human player and two computer players play as the skat partners.
You can play in 3 modes

Rule Skat: follows the exact rules of  the Deutscher Skatverband (DSkV) set in 1999-01-01
Variations Skat: here deviations can be made, and common variations like German Kneipenskat can be played
Schieberamsch: follows a very popular (unofficial) variation of Skat called Ramsch (Schieberamsch if pass on is allowed)

The program can keep up with experienced players and provide surprises.

The main intent, however, was to create a learning aid for Skat beginners. Several
additional cross-game options are therefore offered, including:

  Breaking off and repetition of games
  Undo/redo of tricks
  Exposing the cards
  Exchanging the cards or of the hand
  Exchanging the skat stock
  Exchanging the suits
  Suggestions for possible games
  Suggestions to discard the skat
  Suggestions to play or follow the cards
  Manipulation of tricks
  Demonstration mode - the program as an automaton
