The start screen shows the two options for using JSkat: Playing offline against AI players or playing online against human players and the best AI players known today on the International Skat Server.

After starting JSkat

After starting JSkat you'll find yourself sitting at a wooden table.

Choosing players

Let's start a new skat series. Here you have the choice between different AI Skat players. Player 3 can be you or also an AI player.

Bidding

Now you can do the bidding.

Dialog for looking into Skat

When you did the highest bid you are asked whether you want to look into the Skat or to play a hand game.

Looking into Skat

Here you can take one or two cards from the skat into your hand.

Announcing game

After looking into the Skat you have to announce a game. If you didn't look into the Skat you can announce Schneider, Schwarz and Ouvert.

Start game

Now the game begins.

Playing the game

While playing all results will be calculated for you and a skat list with all the wins and losses is filled out.

Last tricks

You can have a look at the last tricks with this little dialog.

Setting JSkat options

On the options dialog you can set the language, save path and other things, that control the behaviour of JSkat.

Setting Skat rules

JSkat allows you to define the Skat rules in great detail. You can decide whether you want to play only according to the official rules from the ISPA-World or if you want to play with some pub rules like Kontra, Bock and Ramsch.

Debug mode

There is a special debug mode, where you can have a look into the cards of the other players.
