Hey! I learned how to play Euchre when I was in 6th grade (we start young here in michigan) and its my favorite card game now in 10th grade. The worst hand I have ever had was 3 nines and 2 tens and my best hand was both bowers, ace, king of the same suit and and ace of another.

Anybody in here play on yahoo? I'm currently stuck in the intermediate lounges (presently 1630) again after being 2100+ most of last year. (Not looking for people to cheat with) - just nice people to run into once in a while as I play on average 10 games per day or so. Thanks.

Hi! I have a question...I pretty much know how to play euchre (people at my school are obsessed with it) but is the jack only higher than a king, queen, and ace when its the right or left bower (dont know how to spell that) or is it just always?

Hi there!

I can see this community doesn't get much traffic - what a shame there's not more euchre-lovers out there!!

My dad's family comes from northern New South Wales, Australia and has played euchre for generations. Don't know how they started - we certainly don't have any relatives in, or ties to, the US. But I thought you'd like to know how far the great game has spread! (Trouble is, it's so hard to find other people to play with...)

A previous comment suggested you only play with picture cards and the 9s and 10s. Is that right? We always used everything from the 7s upward, using the 5s and 6s as scoring cards. Curious.

Hi I'm Thene. I started playing Euchre hmmm...it was either in Jr. High or High School. I remember learning during band class. I was adopted into the Euchre family fairly quickly and given my own card. The Ace of Spades (The Death Card) because I learned so quick and was a LETHAL opponent.
I continued to play all through high school even when all the original family members graduated and left. I adopted my own family and we'd all play during band class and band trips, etc...
Well, high school is over now. I'm married and moved half way across the country (from Ohio to Oklahoma.) I was hoping to find a group to play with, as Euchre is my favorite card game, with Hearts following shortly after. So if there's anyone here that lives near Enid, Oklahoma that wants to start a Euchre (or Hearts) group, I would LOVE to join! I miss playing cards soooooo very much. :(
Thanks!

Example:

After dinner on New Years Eve 1998, three friends and I started playing euchre. Five minutes before midnight we got the champers, said a toast, and then sat back down and played till dawn.

The best thing in the world was a nine of trump beating an ace in the final hand. The proper way to play was in complete silence and then to talk about each hand for fifteen minutes afterward.

Noone I know plays euchre. If anyone in the Twin Cities Area wants to play - seriously - I'm all ears.

I used to think that no one outside of Ohio played euchre. I went to a workcamp once and the only people that knew the game were from Ohio.

Nothing with ever beat the times when everyday in my Biology study hall we played euchre. There were four of us who always played, but my Biology teacher would play if someone had to do homework. That man was a magician. He would call something on a 9 and a 10 and win. *shakes her head* I miss that class.
