ISS is an internet server that lets you play skat - Germany's traditional card game. The major features of ISS are as follows:
  • Access to ISS is free: there is no usage fee and everybody is allowed in - including skat programs!
  • ISS is home of the strongest skat programs in the world (kermit and zoot)! Here - and nowhere else - you can practice playing against them.
  • All games are stored and made available for free to everyone. Download them here (2.4 million games, 145MB bzip2 file, Jan-2014)
  • The message protocol is open.
  • Our free client software can help you to connect your own programs to ISS.
  • A platform-independent graphical user interface written in Java is available.

In case ISS is running and you can't connect with the latest version of SkatGUI using ports 8000, 7000, or 80, please let us know.
