Bierkopf / Schafkopf
|Posted by Paul on 2018-10-10 11:41:40|
|Bierkopf is a simplified version of the 'normal' game in Schafkopf. There is no bidding and partners are fixed and known, unlike Schafkopf, where the winning bidder 'calls an Ace/Sow' of a suit he doesn't have (not the Heart Sow) and the player who has it becomes his partner but is not allowed to make that known. |
Trumps are the same as Schafkopf's normal game: the Obers of Acorns/Leaves/Hearts/Bells in that order; then the Unters in the same order; then the remaining Hearts in the order A 10 K 9 8 7. You score 1 for a win, 2 for a win with 91 pts and 3 for a slam. During the first trick, you can double the stakes by saying "Contra".
You play a set number of games (typically 21) and the team that loses buys the beer.
