Description

This adaptation of the card game Euchre can only be played by four players in multiplayer. Two players sitting opposite to each other form a team that must defeat the other one by scoring 11 points first. At the start of each round the players receive five cards each. One additional card is turned with the face up. Every player has a chance to order it up, thus setting the trump suit. The dealer is then forced to take the card and discard another one. On the other hand, if everyone passes, each in turn has the opportunity to declare another trump suit. If this fails as well, new cards are dealt.

This version of Euchre is played using a set of 24 cards from 9 to Ace. Every round consists of five tricks. The players attempt to win the tricks by beating the opponents using their own high-ranking cards. The highest card is the Jack of the trump suit, the second highest is the Jack of the same color as trump. The rest rank normally from Ace (the highest) to 9 (the lowest), taking into account that the trump suit always beats the other suits. The game proceeds in a clockwise order, starting from the player next to the dealer. When their turn comes each player lays a card on the table, which must be of the same suit as the first card - if there isn't one, any card can be played. The player with the highest card wins the trick.

The team that sets the trump receives 1 point if it wins 3-4 tricks and 2 points for 5 tricks. If the trump maker plays without his partner and wins all 5 tricks, the team is awarded 4 points. However, if the Makers lose, the opponents get 2 points.
