Learning Curve

playing foreign card games

  1. I remember the cards in Germany didn't have the 2-6.
    I thought someone had taken them, and I looked everywhere.

    1. Cards 2 to 6 exist but you don't need them for most games (read: Skat and Doppekopf), which is why most sets of cards don't ship them. Also, the Daus (ace in German cards) is actually a two, not a one.

  5. To be fair I'm italian and still don't know how to play Tresette; I'm barely able to play Scopa/Scopone, and quite good at Briscola (that's the dumbest game of the three).

    Tresette has the most arcane and obscure rules I've ever seen in a game :|

    1. Tresette is new to me, haven't heard of that one before. I'm only familiar with scopa and briscola, and I like both quite a lot! I've improved since making this comic...

  6. The conversation is not very accurate, it's missing at least a dozen imprecations against every saint and deity, the small clergy and the post office employees
