Doppelkopf is a card game for 4 players and is one of the card classics from northern Germany. The base for the game is 2 standard decks of cards, from which all 9s, 10s, jacks, queens, kings and aces are used. The gameplay itself is very similar to Skat or Sheepshead. 2 players form a team in each round called the "Re" and "Contra" teams. Who your team partner is is decided throughout the course of the game. The aim is to use your trump and discard cards in the best way so that you and your partner (as members of the Re team) reach at least 121 points or (as members of the Contra team) reach at least 120 points.
You should reach the highest number of points possible to beat the other team. The team that plays cleverly and with great team effort wins the game!
