Description Edit | History

In the trick-taking card game Sticheln, players seek to gather points by taking certain suits, while avoiding the negative points in other suits. At the beginning of each hand, each player selects one card from his hand, which becomes his "pain" suit. The face value of all the cards from that suit he takes will be negative points. Positive points are won by taking any other card not in your "pain" suit; each of these cards, however, is worth only a single point. Players need not follow suit if they don't wish to, but every card not in the suit led (except for the precious zeros) is considered a trump card, with the highest, earliest-played trump card taking the trick.

Some versions of Sticheln allow for up to six players, while others (3rd and 4th version) include cards to allow up to eight players.

8 1-sheet compact rules to 37 games playable with Sticheln, Rage, and/or standard decks
Rules to 37 games playable with a Sticheln or Rage deck, including a few great games playable with those decks or a standard deck. Prints on both sides of a single letter-size sheet. It is compact but readable (font size 6.5). The file is a pdf which should contain the original LibreOffice / OpenOffice document. Based largely on the compilation by snoozefest, but there are many different games and a larger font size.

3 Possible Even Deals with a Sticheln Deck
This file tells you what types of even deals are possible. For instance, if you have six players and you want to play a game with five suits, what cards should you remove from the deck to make the deal come out even? This can be useful info if you want to adapt a Sticheln deck to try out other card games.
