EUCHRE / BID EUCHRE / COUPLES BID EUCHRE

cardWe meet every month at a member’s home and play the card game Euchre for a couple of hours.  Not knowing how to play shouldn’t be a deterrent, we can teach you, it’s easy-peasy, and making mistakes is part of the fun.

Bid Euchre:
If you are familiar with the rules of standard Euchre, then it will help you understand the rules of this game.  The game is played with 2 decks using J, Q, K and A (32 cards in all), so each player is dealt 8 cards. The first black jack will determine the dealer. The player to the left of the dealer starts the bid (on a suit or no-trump up to a maximum of 8), or pass based on how many tricks she and her partner will take. There is only “one” round of bids per deal.  The game continues just like regular Euchre, but when two players play the same card in the same round; the player who played it first wins.
