LSkat (Card Game)

KDE (Open Source)

LSkat (Card Game) is a card arcade game developed by KDE as part of its kdegames package. LSkat stands for Lieutenant Skat. The name of the game comes from its German name Offiziersskat. The game is a two player multiplayer game which can also be a single player game, with the computer acting as the second player. The game features a deck of cards shuffled and distributed between the two players. Half of the cards will be dealt face down, while the other half is right side up. The players take turns in playing one open card. The game ends when all the cards are played. The winner is the player with the most points.

LSkat (Card Game) features a gray user interface. The screen is divided into two. The top half is for player 1 and the bottom half for player 2. Each player is dealt 16 cards, 8 of which are turned face up and the other 8 turned face down. The cards are arranged in two rows of card piles, each pile containing one face down card at the bottom, and the face up card at the top.  Players can only turn over a face down card when its counterpart is played. The players take turns in choosing which card to play. The game automatically awards points to the winning player for a specific round.
