    Do You Play Schafkopf (Sheepshead) - Bavarian Game Card?

    Do anyone play the Bavarian card game Schafkopf or the Schafkopf-based card game Sheepshead which is played in the USA especially in Wisconsin.

    I love to play the Bavarian Schafkopf with Bavarian or Franconian cards! Its a Game full of tradition and it exist a own "language" (Schafkopf-Sprache), we, the younger folks from the countryside in Bavaria and Franconia, enjoy to play it, also on tournaments, with the older people.

    But I am also interested in the American version with French cards. Is it still played or does play it only the older German generation in Wisconsin.
    Write what you know about Sheepshead!

    A very good page to play online and also a big worldwide community is Sauspiel!

    The location of the members of "Sauspiel". Are that only emigrants or also Americans playing Sheepshead/Schafkopf?

    We use a similar deck, but we prefer to play Schnapsen (similar-ish), Watten (incl. Ladinern) and Schnellen.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)
