Squib or be squibbed! Play Euchre alone or challenge friends in the 24-card classic. Euchre is a trick-taking card game most commonly played with four people in two partnerships with a deck of 24 standard Euchre playing cards. Euchre is the game responsible for introducing the Joker card into modern packs; this was invented around 1860 to act as a top trump or best bower. Euchre believed to be closely related to the French game Écarté that was popularized in the United States by the Pennsylvania Dutch, and to the seventeenth-century game of bad repute Loo. It may be sometimes referred as ""Knock Euchre"" to distinguish it from Bid Euchre.

I have been having trouble with games.com and AOL for 4 days now.  I learned something new last night.  Games.com told me that AOL controls our game chat, our Leaderboard, and comments.  So if we have a complaint, I guess we should contact AOL.  Masque only controls the game itself.

Hey all of you that are giving Ami crap!  She is one of the nicest people in the world and is a good card player.  SCREW the rules of whatever everyone THINKS this is or isn't.  THIS IS A SOCIAL game to most of us here.  If you want to play "by YOUR rules" GO PLAY WITH YOURSELF AND BY YOURSELF OR WITH THE BOTS.  This is computerized game - duh.  Get a life that more than this game!

Just want to say I stand corrected in my statement about making trump with only Bowers, my apologies if I delivered the wrong information, that certainly was not my intentions. I would have bet I had read that in the actual paper back book of Hoyle 25 years ago. lol Guess I need to re-read it right. I am human and made a mistake in my attempt to clear up a misunderstanding, how dare I, I am so ashamed of myself. LMFAO

I,m reading hoyle,The last card of the pack,belonging to the dealer.  It don,t say if he don,t have 1  he can,t pick it.THINK'' Every game has defence. if you can,t pick it Wheres your defence in stopping a game winning  lone.THINK.

Would any good player,turn down both bowers,and 3 suite aces,at 9 to 9,playing for 10.00 dollars.your opponents won,t,

Players are reading the book.good. Dealer always has a trump. He is the only one with 6  cards.When you deal,you will have 6  cards.You either pick, or turn it  down.rules are simple.

I am only wanting to express two main misunderstood concepts of this game so many overlook, or do not know the rules to the game Euchre, or the Euchre terminology. First, according to the rules a player can not make trump unless they have that suit in hand. (Both Bowers player can not make trump, Both black Bowers and a 9 of clubs player can make trump clubs) Not spades because the player has the J of spades, only clubs. That rule here can only be enforced by ones own honesty. (The Honor system) Please keep the game honest. Secondly, in Euchre If you name trump you have to take at least 3 tricks to get your point. Failure to do that means "your set" and the other team gets 2 points. Some may care, some may not IDK, but for those that are trying to learn Euchre let's give them the benefit to learn the right way to play this Fantastic and very old game. Thanks for your time.

For those of you having problems, there was a Java update today. Go to Java.com Let Java check your system for the latest version.  Just be sure to UNCHECK the boxes where it says ASK SEARCH & TOOLBAR. There are 2 boxes. You don't need them.  The rest is EASY.

@justpetemcd  Yes - it's time for them to do some maintenance.  Chat is freezing, timer is slow starting and even the bots are frozen many times.

@janthonyb1 Example #1. Ordering up Trump. The rules state that you can't order up trump without that suit in your hand. Ummm, excuse me? Where did THIS rule come from? Mom? Dad? An aunt? Uncle? Their parents? Perhaps a friend. This "rule" is a sick joke. Hoyle says that the determining factor in declaring trump is if you think you are strong enough to make a point. Period. "Joe" turns up a J of Hearts. It gets to you (Joe's partner) and you have two black aces and the J of diamonds and no hearts. Your not allowed to order Joe up because the "left" isn't the left yet! Huh?! Seems to me that you have required what the rules state. I would think that one of my Aces would be good for a trick, I know my left is and I know that the right that I ordered into my partners hand is certainly good for a trick. BUT! I don't get to play this hand because of "whose" rules? You may find a new fangled rule book that states this as a "rule". If you do, I'd certainly like to see it :) Question is, is this "rule" used by skillful Euchre players who know how to play the game or sissies who don't really like getting their butts kicked in a real game of Euchre? Whilst we're on this note. I'd also like to know why you don't like it when a dealer picks up a card without having that suit in his/her hand? Let me get this straight. We're playing for $10.00 a game, $2 per Euchre. It's my deal. You have no problem with me picking up a card because I have several in my hand and feel that I can make my point(s) and get that much closer to taking YOUR $10, but if I wanted to pick it up on a "hunch" with none of that particular suit in my hand and was seriously flirting with a Euchre, losing $2 to you and helping you get that much closer to the end of the game and MY $10 you have a problem with those odds? Whew, you're not the type to go to Vegas now are you?

@onewentwild @darling_daintyft @love_life99 @justpetemcd The CHAT is controlled by a separate entity. Games.com does not handle the CHAT part of the games. I know it sounds ridiculous but it's a fact.  When Games.com is notified that there is a problem with chat, they in turn notify the chat company. It is NOT an AOL issue if the CHAT is screwing up.
