A decentralized implementation of the German card game Skat
SecureSkat project is a decentralized implementation of the German card game Skat.
The program negotiates participating players and game sessions over an arbitrary IRC network (Internet Relay Chat).
Neither a trusted third-party (dealer) nor a centralized game server is necessary. All critical operations, e.g. shuffle of the deck, are performed using advanced cryptographic techniques (so-called Mental Poker solutions) provided by LibTMCG.
The outdated OpenSkat branch contains a graphical user interface based on XSkat 3.4. This interface can be used with most recent versions, but must be built separately.
What's New in This Release:
В· This is a code cleanup and bugfix release. First, some namespace issues have been solved in order to compile with newer versions of GCC and stdc++.
