Dear friends of the Palace,
Our official Palace of Cards Tournaments are back from a short late summer break: On Saturday, September 18, 2021, the ACE Altenburg Tournament XXL will start at 8:30 pm CET in the style of our official partner, ACE Altenburger! This tournament is an XXL edition with five instead of three series. So, make sure you have enough time for a lovely game night!
We like spreading the joy of playing. Thus, we have been giving a digital home to card games since 2009. That matches ACE Altenburger perfectly: Card-making has been present in the German town Altenburg for over 500 years – already since 1832 by a company called Spielkartenfabrik Altenburg GmbH!
Now, we teamed up: ACE Altenburger card designs have been available at the Palace for a while now. And since October 2019, more and more newly produced card games feature a voucher for the Skat Palace, Rummy Palace, and Sheepshead Palace!
With this tournament, we celebrate our partnership! Join and compete for one of our exclusive prizes.
The following player numbers are in effect at ACE Altenburg Tournament 2021:
|Skat||3 players per table|
|Rummy||4 players per table|
|Doppelkopf||4 players per table|
|Sheepshead||4 players per table|
|Canasta||4 players per table|
|Mau-Mau||4 players per table|
|Solitaire||4 players per table|
|Pinochle||4 players per table|
|Spider||4 players per table|
Depending on the game, 200 to 450 players can play per group in every game. When the maximum of players is exceeded, the next group will open automatically. This way, everyone can partake for a bet of merely one Chip! Of course, you will face tenacious opponents. But if you come out on top, appreciation and exclusive prizes await you.

To participate in the tournament, you just need to be online in your game on September 18, 2021, shortly before 8:30 pm CET, and enter the tournament in the competition area.
There will be exclusive Palace of Cards certificates, numerous Premium days, and a jackpot with up to 10,000 Chips. We lovingly design the certificates exclusively for this occasion! All winners of the places one to three receive one as a PDF:
There is the possibility of several players coming in at the same place per game. This can come up due to several play groups per tournament on the one hand and due to double placements based on players reaching a draw in the same group on the other.
Here is an example: If 540 players registered for Sheepshead, we would split the tournament into three groups with a maximum of 200 players each. As a result, there would be three first places, three second places, and three third places.
Each play group has its separate jackpot. We will note in your certificate in which play group you were successful. The jackpot and the Premium days will be split among the winners per group. Usually, the first place receives 70% of the Chips in the pot and 90 Premium days, the second place 20% and 60 Premium days, and the third place 10% and 30 Premium days.
If double placements occur, the distribution of prizes can change slightly. This is always clearly communicated in our update post on the winners.
Best sign up right away, so you cannot forget it. Once that is done, you can happily anticipate the tournament with us. Get ready for the clash of the best – practice makes perfect! So, don’t be intimidated and show your skills.
Greetings, and already wishing you a good hand,
Your Palace Team
