Contributions and Feedback

The Pagat website was founded in 1995. Its aim is to document the rules of traditional card and domino games for the benefit of players who would like to broaden their knowledge and try out unfamiliar games. It takes its name from the Pagat, the lowest trump in the Central European game of Tarock.
