Bowls and ‘Truco’ Stamps by Argentina

The Correo Argentino has issued two stamps depicting Argentina's Traditional Games - Bowls and "Truco".

Truco is a popular trick-taking card game played in Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay, Spain and Italy. It is played using a Spanish deck, by two, four or six players, divided into two teams. Truco is traditionally played with a 32-card French deck.

Bowls is a sport in which the objective is to roll slightly asymmetric balls, called bowls, so that they stop close to a smaller - normally white - bowl called the "jack" or "kitty". Bowls, either flat- or crown-green, is usually played outdoors, on grass and synthetic surfaces. Flat-green bowls can also be played indoors on synthetic surfaces.
