Updated: Feb 14

Jaques Original Snap, Pepys Series


First Published: 1984, by Gibsons Games, London SW19

Illustrator or Designer: John Tenniel


Contents: 44 Cards + Folded Rules Sheet


British Wild Flowers - Box Front

Jaques Original Snap - Box Front


There are 44 cards, 11 characters with 4 identical cards each.


Jaques Original Snap is one of the Pepys games that Gibsons retained when they took over the brand in 1984. The card designs are the same but the colour of the backs was changed.


There is a later edition with the newer blue Gibsons Games Logo and other differences, I will add an example to this page


The games advertised on the back of the rules are exactly the same as those advertised on the Pepys 1960 edition rules.


There is no full address give in the game just a postcode on the box base. That postcode relates to Gibsons Games when they were trading from: Unit 9/Greenlea Park, Prince Georges Road, London, SW19 2RB


To compare the Gibsons version with the original Pepys editions and view all the cards see the page here.
