Pentecost Tournament 2020 at the Palace

Klickt hier für die deutsche Version.

Dear friends of the Palace,

We are excited, you are receiving the tournaments so well. As you might have noticed, we especially enjoy holding our official Palace of Cards tournaments on German public holidays! That is why it will be time to play again soon: On June 1, 2020, we will hold our Pentecost Tournament XXL!

The XXL tournament is a new edition: This time, there will be especially many series for plenty of gaming fun! Seize the chance, take in the tournament atmosphere, and show everyone how far you get.

Participation

The XXL Pentecost Tournament will take place in the following games:

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

The XXL Tournament’s special feature is the high number of series. Usually, the official Palace of Cards Tournaments have three series. This time there will be five series! So, make sure to take enough time.

This time, up to 300 players can play in a group in every game. When 300 players are exceeded, the next group will open automatically. Everyone can partake for a bet of only one Chip! Of course, you will face tenacious opponents. But if you come out on top in your game, appreciation and exclusive prizes await you.

Registration

Sign up for the tournament via the game you want to compete in as of now. To do so, enter your desired game, and continue step by step:

On a tablet or smartphone

On a desktop PC or laptop

1. Click Advanced.

2. Click Competition.

3. Click Tournaments.

4. Scroll until you see the tournament titled Pfingstturnier and click Enroll.

1. Click Competition at the bottom of the lobby.

3. Scroll until you see the tournament titled Pfingstturnier and click Enroll.

After this, you just need to be online in your game on June 1, 2020, at 8:30 pm CET to take part in the tournament.

Prizes

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:

All winners means several play groups per tournament are possible: When maximum registered players are exceeded, another play group will open automatically. So, if 540 players registered for Sheepshead, the tournament would be held in two groups mith a maximum of 300 players each.

As a result, there would be two first places, two second places, and two third places. Each play group has its separate jackpot. Which play group you were successful in will be noted in your certificate.

The jackpot and the Premium days will be split among the winners. 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.

See You Soon!

We are looking forward to welcoming the participants!

A Fresh Breeze for 2020

Klickt hier für die deutsche Version.

Dear friends of the Palace,

We have some upgrades up our sleeves and they are coming soon! These updates will go live as soon as they are ready. Currently, we are polishing and testing all changes, and we expect to begin updating the games over the next weeks. Do not fear – nothing will be turned upside down: We mainly worked on a nicer, more accessible gaming environment for you. Some changes concern several games at once. Others are specific for Skat or Pinochle. Let’s get started with our announcements!

Skat: Timer and Prettier Bidding Interface

At the Skat Palace, you can soon see how much time a player has left for their action.

The looks of our bidding feature will be updated, as well:

Speech Bubbles for Bidding in Skat, Doppelkopf, and Sheepshead

So far, the bidding is displayed in the chat. In the foreseeable future, in Skat, Doppelkopf, and Sheepshead, you will see speech bubbles instead.

New Window for Voting in Nearly All Games

Skat, Doppelkopf, Sheepshead, Solitaire, Spider, Mau-Mau, Rummy, and Canasta will get a fresh new window to vote on playing another game at the same table. Have a look:

In-Game E-Mail Verification for All Games at the Palace

You can verify your profile using your e-mail address in Skat, Doppelkopf, Sheepshead, Pinochle, Solitaire, Spider, Mau-Mau, Rummy, and Canasta.

To this end, you receive a verification e-mail when setting up a new profile at the moment. Since this e-mail gets lost sometimes, you can soon resend it from your profile in the game. This is important since certain features can only be used with a verified profile!

As soon as this is available, you will find a new “Verify” button in your profile in the section „Personal Data“. It will only show up if your profile was not verified yet. When you try to use a feature requiring verification, it will be pointed out to you, and you can request the verification e-mail from there.

Club Feature for Pinochle

Our major announcement concerns Pinochle: The club feature will be here soon! Use it to found and join clubs and take part in the Club League!

When entering the competition area in the future, you can not only select the League but also Clubs. There, your first stop will be the club house, where the clubs you belong to are displayed. By clicking „Create“, you can found your own club.

The club area will have three more sections – the Club League, the search, and your mailbox. In the Club League, all clubs are ranked in relation to one another. Using the menu, you will be able to take a look at the club members, the ranking of members of one club, Champions of your club, and Champions across clubs!

With the search, you will be able to look for clubs, of course. Your mailbox will collect applicants for your club on one side and invitations for you to join further clubs on the other side.

This is it for today. We hope you are looking forward to these improvements as much as we do! For praise, criticism, and suggestions, feel free to comment on this post or send an e-mail to support@spiele-palast.de.
