Now you wanna play

Now that you know how to play, you’re gonna want to take some time to practice. Live games are best. Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to get 3 other live players. Especially when you are jonesin’ for a game at 2 o’clock in the morning. Thankfully, there are plenty of opportunities to play online.

I recommend Yahoo!

But for a complete listing, check out what one of the world’s leading Euchre aficionados (Natty Bumppo) has to say on the subject.

His book Columbus book on Euchre has great content and I recommend it. The book quality is a bit “home-made” but it’s still worth a read.

Actually, the content of his Euchre pages is pretty good but it also has that “home-made” quality to it that makes it confusing to look at. However, I really like his work.

For a good computer game version, check out Sierra's Hoyle Card Games 2004.

This isn't as good as a live game or even an online game however. The computer players are relatively easy to beat. It is an excellent game if you are first starting out.
