Description from the Publisher

EUCHRE is derived from the game 'Juker' or 'juckerspiel', which was played in Alsace. It reached the USA in the early 1800's, and in the 1850's it became the first ever game to use a Joker! In 1904 the US Playing Card Co. created a variant called 500.

This computer version has customizable settings so that it is a challenge to new and experienced players, while maintaining all the enjoyment of the original.

Euchre is an outstanding social card game, straightforward in theory but with a high level of subtlety in the play. The game offers a number of variations, as you can play it with any number of players and as a long or quick game.

Euchre was probably derived from the game Jucker which was formerly played in Alsace. Euchre reached the USA in the early nineteenth century and was the original game for which the Joker was introduced into the playing-card pack in the 1850s (to serve as the highest trump). It has already been mentioned that Euchre is popular in the US Navy, and it may be through this maritime connection that it travelled in the later nineteenth century from America to other English speaking parts of the world. Certainly in Britain it is mainly found in regions where there has been a strong Naval influence.
