How to increase your luck in euchre

Who believes in luck? As we've previously wrote about euchre is a game with a large luck factor. This website is designed to increase how often you win at euchre but the reality is, one third of the time you will lose no matter how great you play.

Increase luck to increase euchre wins

Here at the Euchre Universe, we don't much believe you have control of luck since everything that has and will ever happen was determined when the Big Bang formed the universe some 14 billion years or so ago. However, we do believe in diversity of opinion so this list of what some countries believe will bring luck in the new year is interesting. These things won't help but they won't hurt either and it could liven up your euchre game. Here are some favorites or at least some that seem a bit odd.
  1. Austria - They believe that pigs and green peppermint ice cream in the shape of a four-leaf clover will bring luck.
  2. Bengali - What could be luckier than painting a pattern on the ground with a flour solution, then putting a pot decorated with Swastikas and filled with mango sticks in the middle?
  3. Brazil - They push a boat filled with flowers out to sea and eat lentil soup.
  4. Denmark - They break dishes at your front door.
  5. China - Paint their doors red.
  6. Sicily - Good luck comes from eating lasagna on New Year's Eve.
  7. Spain - They eat 12 grapes at the stroke of midnight. Weird, I like to drink 12 beers.
  8. Thailand - They have a big water fighter.
  9. Norway - Rice pudding with a hidden almond is lucky (as long as you don't choke on it)
  10. United States - Everyone plays euchre with a rubber chicken (oh wait, not everyone yet)
Of course, these things won't have much effect on your euchre game but it could make it more fun.
