Jass is a Swiss card game commonly played by four people in two teams. To play, you need a deck of 36 cards, with only the Ace through 6 of each suit (if you have a 52 card deck, remove 2 through 5 in each suit). A team's players should be located diagonally across from each other at the playing surface.
Choose a player to deal the cards. Starting with the player to the right, deal 3 cards at a time to each player until everyone has 9 cards. Each player should look only at their own cards.
