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 was an earlier Gibsons edition of the game without a Barcode on the box and a later edition with the newer blue Gibsons Games Logo and other differences. I will add examples of both 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.
