Swiss Cards

Swiss Jass Cards

Jass is the most famous card-playing game in Switzerland. Some say it could be the ancestor of the US game of Pinochle. In the east part of the country, people play with cards that are different from those of the rest of Europa. There is no queen, but two jacks: a knave and a squire. The colors are also different, there a no hearts or spades, instead the four families are bells, flowers, shields and acorn. I find those cards beautiful.
