I was told that Jass is a popular family of swiss card games. It is a four person game similar to pinochle, but has more cards and a little more variability. The general rules can be found here and the rules for the version I am trying to learn, Schieber, can be found here.

The picture below shows the ace and face cards from the shields suit.

We have not played yet, but I hope to play soon.

  1. Jass is really fun once you can figure out all of the rules. A couple of Swiss friends taught me the game but I don't know that I could explain it on my own to someone.
