Euchre is a great social card game. It is a relatively simple game to learn, but becomes increasingly complex once you understand the fundamentals. The most difficult part for many new players to grasp is the rank of the cards. This is because once trump has been named, there will be cards that will change their rank and suit. You will also need to know how to keep score.

Here are 20 questions to test your knowledge of how the game is played. Get a perfect score of 100 and you are on your way to learning what a truly great game euchre is.
