Here you will find answers to frequently asked Skat questions.
If your question is missing, do not hesitate to ask the developer via this app.
The questions are grouped in following categories:
Is Skat a game of pure chance?
No. Skat is a strategy game. It requires game intelligence to be successful.
Can I play for money?
This app does only the accounting for you. Please note that neither this app nor the developer of this app pay out any real money! Your playing partners are not required to use their real names or photos. So you may not be able to identify the person in real life.
How can I change the names and pictures of the players?
Tap the white cross to go to the gaming room. Then tap the player's profile icon. The screen with the names, pictures, scores, etc. of all players will appear. Touch a picture to import a new one. Tap the player's name to change it.
How can the power consumption of the app be reduced?
You can switch off card animation (see settings).
How do I get to the gaming room?
Just tap the white cross in the right top corner of the screen to go to the gaming room, as illustrated on page views.
What Skat rules have to be followed?
That is your decision. You can follow the international Skat Order or you can deviate from these rules by allowing Ramsch, double, etc. You can change the rules in settings.
What is the international Skat Order?
It is a standard containing internationally binding set of rules for all Skat players published by the ISPA World (International Skat Players Association) and DSkV (German Skat Union). These rules were introduced to avoid disputes and disagreements.
Why is only one skill level supported?
Since you can take back your played cards very easily, you can increase your skill level artificially. Learning from your mistakes is the fastes way to master this game. You learn nothing if the AI makes big mistakes on purpose to let you win.
On the other side, if the AI makes annoying tactical mistakes, you should not hesitate to contact the developer. You can do it comfortably in this app. So don't worry, this AI-machine is constantly learning, too ... ;-)
If you want to win or lose more games, you could change the settings and let the app deal you better or worse cards, respectively.
What is the aspect ratio of the playing cards?
The aspect ratio (height/width) must be 3/2.
Why are the pictures of my playing cards not imported?
The automatic card detection may fail sometimes. To get best results, please put the card on a black surface. At the moment, only white cards are detected. If you have encountered problems and followed all the steps, you may send your playing card to the developer to fix the issue in the app.
Why do I not see other players nearby?
There are four conditions to be met: (1) the other player must also run this app, (2) both players must have activated the multiplayer game, (3) wireless networks must be activated, (4) search for players must be activated, and (5) both players must be in close range for wireless communication.
