Its modern descendants are Doppelkopf, Skat and the North American game of Sheepshead. Its earlier written reference dates of 1803, although it only came to notice by the polite society of Altenburg in 1811. Schafkopf, also called Schaffkopf, is a late 18th century German trick-taking card game most popular in Bavaria, but also played in other parts of Germany as well as other German-speaking countries like Austria. The exact origin of the word Schafkopf comes from "Schaffen" and "Kopf", which means to "work one' s brain. " Although the game is often erroneously translated as "Sheeps Head" from the German Schaf or sheep, the existing sources do not indicate a Bavarian origin for the game. The theory of the author Wolfgang Peschel states that in earlier times the game was played on top (middle high German (plural): Koepfen) of wooden casks (middle high German: Schaff) instead of a table, and so the correct spelling should be Schaffkopf.
