The Unter , also Wenzel or Wenz , in Swiss also Under , is a playing card figure and a card value in the German hand that corresponds to the jack in the French hand . Under is derived from subordinate , servant. For the pictorial representation, motifs of simple knights or even peasants are usually chosen (in contrast to the French sheet, where mostly wealthy nobles are shown). With the four cards included you can play Skat , Maumau , Bayerisches Tarock and Schafkopf , while the cards for Gaigel and Doppelkopf contain eight cards . In the Skat game with a German hand and in the German Schafkopf , Unter are the highest trump cards .
