Special Müller Playing Cards (Jass and Poker)
These cards are all printed by Müller, even they mostly vary on the cards ace of bell and ace of shield.
The difference between these cards and the normal standard pack is, that here the background is yellow instead of white. These cards were sold under the name "Tschau Sepp". Tschau Sepp is a card game that can be played with any deck and any suit system and I believe it exists in all countries of the world. The rules are basically, that the player whose turn it is must lay down a card on the pile of either the same suit or the same rank. With an Under he can change suit. The player who has laid down all his cards first wins the game.
These playing cards with the crossbow are sold by the largest Swiss retailer "Migros". Since a few decads these cards are manufactured by Müller. Older decks though vary quite to Müller and I believe that either Migros had an own card factory or that another manufacturer (who was later bought by Müller) made the cards for Migros. I did some research and contacted Migros for information on this topic. The answer they gave me just shows that they know nothing. They said that these cards have been in their supply since September 2003, what definitely not is true. I can remember that in the 1970s I bought such cards at Migros and I am quite sure, that already before that they sold such Jass decks.
This is something very special because you have advertising on the cards where Müller usually puts the manufacturer information. Ciba-Geigy is the pharmacy company that merged with competitor Sandoz; now that company is called Novartis.
These playing cards were specially made to encourage children to play Jassen. They are sold under the name "Mit Globi Jassen" and come in a box with one deck of Swiss and one deck of French suited Jass cards. Included are also the rules of the game.
This is a special deck that was manufactured for the 500 year anniversary of the Swiss Guards in the Vatican. The only card that is different compared to the regular pack is the ace of shield.
These are not actually Jass cards; they are rather poker cards, which are sold under the term "Swiss Poker". As such, a complete deck consists of 52 cards plus 3 Jokers, and also has the wider poker format 88 x 63 mm.
For sale, these cards were brought to shelves in June 2007.
