Zeit fur Schnapps und Skat ..

This Sunday evening is perfect time for Schnapps and  Skat game. Skat is a 3-player trick-taking card game of the Ace-Ten family, devised around 1810 in Altenburg in the Duchy of Saxe-Gotha-Altenburg. It is the national game of Germany and, along with Doppelkopf, it is the most popular card game in Germany and Silesia. It is considered one of the best and most interesting card games for 3 players. These playing card soldiers are made by RK (90s) ant the others are made by Lineol and Elastolin in 30s.
Nicholas K. Johnson wrote a very interesting five-part series on alcohol, drugs, and the Great War. I really recommend his article "The German Army and Intoxication".
