In the past 20+ years Euchre was primarily a game played in the midwest. Now it has spread to many parts of the US as Americans continue to move and share various card games with others around the USA. With it's popularity growing in the past few years we decided to not only introduce a deck of our own Euchre cards, but to implement some of the variations that help make the game so much fun.
Euchre is a classic trick-taking card game that is played with a 24 card deck consisting of 9's, 10's, Jacks, Queens, Kings and Aces. You can also play “bid euchre” or handed euchre with the 7 spot up included in this deck. For those who like to play unique twist or "old school" style euchre this deck also includes bonus “Jokers” to be able to play using a “Best Bower” or use both “Jokers” to play “Big Joker/Little Joker”.
Includes 2 deck of 36 playable cards if you include the Big Joker/Little Joker. The cards are linen finish, poker sized (2-1/2 x 3-1/2) for easy euchre play.
Euchre Basic Instructions (written by Joe Andrews) are included in the deck along with counter cards to help keep track of score.
Playing Card Features
In the US the standard names for the size of decks would be "Bridge" or "Poker". Both of these decks can be used for most card games. The only real difference would be that the "Bridge" size decks are 1/4" narrower than "Poker". Otherwise they can be used for pretty much anything. Please read the description of this item for more information.
- Poker Size (2-1/2 x 3-1/2)
This has to do with the actual size of a deck of cards, not really whether or not tradional games can be played with it or not. While here in the US we call most decks either "Poker" or "Bridge" size, most of the rest of the world would call them either "Wide" or "Narrow", respectivily.
Many times the "narrow" decks were intended for ladies or children because it was easier for them to handle. While the "narrow" are considered the standards size in most of the world, here in the US the "wide" are considered the standard size.
