    • Calling trump
      • The dealer of each hand has the word Dealer above them throughout the deal.
      • If you order up the first card shown the dealer will obtain that card as part of their hand.
        • If you make trump or someone else orders up a card to you it can be beneficial to throw away a card which limits the number of suits you are holding.
      • If nobody orders up the dealer then players get a chance to name which suit they would like to make as trump. Players can choose any suit other than the one which was turned down on the deal.
        • If nobody chooses a trump suit the hand is redealt anew with new cards.
      • In general you should presume that your partner can get at least 1 hand while hoping to take 2 yourself.
      • In some games computer players are rather aggressive at calling trump. In this game the computer players are not too aggressive with calling trump.
    • Card order
      • For suits which are not trump the order is A-K-Q-J-10-9.
      • For suits which are trump the Jack of that suit & the other Jack of the same color are the most powerful cards, then the remaining cards are in the same order as above.
        • If Clubs were Trump the Jack of Clubs would be the right bower & the Jack of Spades would be the left bower.
        • The card order for Clubs as trump would be Jack of Clubs, Jack of Spades, then A-K-Q-10-9 of clubs.
        • Trump suit beats any card from any other suits.
    • Playing hands
      • Players must follow the suit which is led if they are holding that suit in their hand.
      • If your partner makes trump and you have a chance to lay it you typically would want to in most cases.
    • Games
      • You score 1 point for calling trump and making 3 or 4 tricks.
      • You score 2 points for calling trump and making 5 tricks.
      • You score 2 points for getting at least 3 tricks when your opposing team called trump.
      • If you play alone you score 4 points instead of 2 if you wan all 5 tricks.
      • Games last until one team makes it to 10 points.
  • British Euchre Game Play
    • Jokers
      • The British version of Euchre is the same as American Euchre with the exception that a Joker is included in the deck.
      • The Joker is more powerful than any other card in the deck. Other than that, the game is largely the same.
        • While the Joker is wild, if you hold a specific suit in your hand which is led, you must follow suit on that trick and can not throw the Joker on any trick where you have the suit led in your hand.
        • The Joker is considered to be trump suit. If trump suit is led you must throw a Joker if you do not have any other trump in your hand.
      • In British Euchre it is much easier to get set if you have a marginally decent hand and call trump, as a person holding the Joker can negate traditional concepts like having the left bower with a lower trump to protect it, or even do away with the idea that the right bower is guaranteed to be good for a trick.
  • Target Audience
    • The game is suited for people of all ages who like Euchre or card games.
    • The game has no adult themed content.
