From there we suggest that you go on to read the information on the 'Tips + Info' pages. There is too much information on this site to cover it all in one reading. Most people find it works best to only read a page or two at a time.

It is also beneficial to play a few games in between reading sessions. Try to incorporate what has been learned into every game. By following the steps presented here you will find that your win/loose ratio will start to improve.

"The phrase "practice makes perfect" is a false one. To rise above mediocrity, it takes "enlightened" Practice, most often with the aid of someone or something else. Improvements take practice. A Critical attitude of what needs to be improved certainly helps, many "old-timers" tend to "practice" the same way time after time. The information is given here is a step in the right direction."

* Ohio Euchre's Standard Rules *

There long has been a need for a standard set of rules for the game of Euchre. In every other game but euchre, One knows what the rules are. All these other games have a standard set of rules. Part of the mission here at Ohio Euchre is to help bring unity to the world of euchre. After much deliberation among euchre tournament directors we have come up with this rule set.

* Euchre Tips and Information *

Euchre is a game where skill is rewarded. Successful players often pull points from weak hands and turn marginal hands into loners. What is their secret, how do they do it? Do they know something others don't, or are they just lucky. A lot comes from practice, but practice is of little value without guidance from someone or something.

What a great site. I haven't played since getting out of school last year. I knew there had to be games played in the area, Just didn't know where.

I remember lots of games of Euchre in high school. I would play 2 man Euchre with a guy in my homeroom every morning. I would play 4 player Euchre in senior English class. The best games of Euchre, however, were with my girlfriend (now wife) and her grandparents. We would sit at her house for hours playing Euchre. We now live on the west coast, and will be visiting family in Ohio in the spring. Nice to know Euchre is still alive and well in Ohio. I may even find time to get out and play a few games

I Grew up in Michigan. We used to play it constantly all the time I was college. It’s a game that goes very well with beer. When I moved to California, I found that no one had ever heard of it. Repeated attempts to explain the rules were met with blank stares. Now I live in Europe and I wouldn’t even try. I miss the old days. We have some good times playing cards back then.

I haven't played in years. Do you have games for beginners? Also, do you have to be a member of the Moose Lodge? I was a member many years ago on the west side of Columbus but got very sick and my membership elapsed. Also, is there a contact person I can talk to on the phone about the games that are held at the lodge on Noe Bixby?

Thank you for your time and consideration.

I don't remember exactly when I learned to play, but my parents claim that they taught me before I was old enough to go to school. I didn't believe them at first. I didn't think any five y.o. would be able to or willing to learn euchre. My uncle Bill told the same story so it must have been true. I do remember playing with the family while growing up. I also remember being mocked mercilessly if I made a mistake. My dad still plays quite often. I havent played in years as I now live in Texas, no one has heard of euchre down here.

I've enjoyed looking around this web site. It brings back a lot of good memories.
I was born and raised in Cincinnati, OH where I were raised on goetta and eggs. I attended college at the Univ. of Cincinnati, where I majored in Math and minored in Euchre.
As a young person, I hung around while the grownups played euchre. I would wind up fetching beers and sodas for the players (and Grandpa always slipped me a quarter for the service).
As i got a little older, I got to be a "pee player". This was when I could sit in and play one of the adults' hands while they visited the restroom. Older still. I got my own seat at the table, but the Grandparents would put up the money for my ante. I feel like a real adult when I was finally allowed to risk my own allowance money at the table. Ah, the good old days.
I now live in Cold Springs, Nevada, and NOBODY here plays it. It's one of the many things I miss about Ohio.

Just starting out playing online. Will be going to Michigan next month to play in a tournament. Hoping to learn strategy from your site.

Just a note to Robert in Cold Springs--I grew up in Cuy. Falls and went to Kent State where I majored in Euchre:) and also loved the playing w adults part--my dad would take me to the Italian clubs where the old guys were also willing to teach and let you play as long as you knew your stuff. I now live in Lovelock and have taught friends, my kids, and their friends how to play, so there are plenty of Euchre players now in the Reno-Sparks area--even in Oregon.

If you are playing a lone hand and the opposition reneges, how many points do you score, 2 or 4?

Posted by Ron Ramsey  on Tuesday, 07.8.14 @ 05:33am| #3232

As stated on the RULES page, a renege against a lone call is 4 points.

My partner deals the cards and turns up Queen of Clubs, which the person left of her passes, as I pass as well. But the player right of the dealer, "states" Diamonds. Upon realizing his error by not passing of the still turned up Queen of Clubs first, and stating his preferred trump, he tosses his cards into the middle of the table face up, assuming this will end this hand?? What is the rule in this situation

Posted by Duane  on Sunday, 11.1.15 @ 05:04am| #3487

In all but the most relaxed settings, this would be a 2 point penalty.
I have re-posted this on the 'rules' page. Please try and ask questions on the appropriate page

I'm so glad to have found this site. I grew up in Ohio and played in Euchre tournaments at our Eagles Club there. I really miss that time in my life. I live in Oklahoma now and no one has heard of it. I'm hoping to teach my grandchildren. I will be visiting often. Thanks
