The Euchre Community
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.
