Sun City West Sheepshead Club

Camaraderie is built into the card game’s history. Most accounts date Sheepshead back to Middle Europe in the late 1700s. Back then, peasants allegedly invented the game “Schafskopf” to vent their frustration over the government. Sheepshead modified the order of cards because the peasants in Europe were disgruntled with the kings, so in their card games they gave the kings a lower rank. They made Queens, Jacks, and diamonds (a symbol of wealth) trump.

We meet at the Beardsley Recreation Center.
