With the Jass stamp sheet and the eight stamps, Swiss Post is bringing a nationally widespread topic to the world of stamps. Whether young or old, in the tavern or in the trusty home, bite according to strict rules or exuberantly in a cheerful round: in the whole of Switzerland, jasst is hunted. Just how popular the game is is shown by the fact that the SRF program “Samschtig-Jass” with its predecessors has been broadcast since 1968. It is the oldest entertainment show in Europe!
These special stamps stage the regionally different playing cards. Played in German-speaking Switzerland with bells, srings, acorns and roses, in the west and south of the country it is heart, karo, cross and spade. Also in one caseone says “Ober” and “Under”, in the other “Lady” and “Jack”. The Jass border runs mainly along the Brünig, Napf, Reuss and Aare lines. In the canton of Aargau there are even municipalities in which different parts of the village play with the other cards !
