Sheepshead is a trick-taking card game related to the Skat family of games. It is the Americanized version of a card game which originated in Central Europe in the late 1700s under the German name Schafkopf.
In the past you could only play sheepshead when you had a group of people wanting to play, but with the advent of the internet you can play a wide range of games online like: internet blackjack, Skat and now Sheepshead can also be played online.
Although Schafkopf literally means "sheepshead", the term may have been derived from Middle High German and referred to playing cards on an overturned barrel (from kopfen, meaning playing cards, and Schaff, meaning a barrel).
