Robert Blokker (FAUST) gives us his very complete analysis on a New figure set from Masterbox, their very innovative ''Skatspieler'' which, in contrary to the recent sets from the company consists of four figures in a very relaxed situation - playing cards. You don''t know what Skat is? There''s even a link to an explanation of that as well! Robert''s review can be seen:

If you have comments or questions please post them here.

Thanks!

Good review.

But Tarock (spelt Tarok - and the game from which I took my callsign) and Tarot are 2 different things. Tarot cards are used for Tarok, but are more commonly known as fortune-telling cards.
