Singapore Post will be issuing a set of 5 stamps titled Traditional Board Games. The stamps feature Chinese Chess, Aeroplane Chess, Snakes and Ladders, Checkers and the Diamond Game which were popular in the 70s and 80s.
The usual first day cover will also be available and a set of maximum cards will also available with special first day cancellations.
Singapore Post have not issue any maximum cards in quite a while.
Joint issues by postal administrations are very popular nowadays, both for the issuing bodies and collectors.
Collectors from both the countries want a set of the the stamps from each country. This means extra sales and profits for the issuing post offices.
No wonder more and more are being issued and usually under the guise of cutual exchange of to improve country to country relations.
Anyway, Singaporeans are known to be eating out a lot but I am not sure whether this set will appeal to non collectors.
