Euchre is a trick taking card game played with 4 players (2 teams of 2 players). The player sitting across from you is your team mate (the monkey). The game is played with a deck that has all cards lower than 9s removed. Each player is dealt 5 cards followed by a card dealt face up. Each player starting with the player sitting to the left of the dealer has the opportunity to order the dealer to pick up the card. If a player order's up the card, the suit of that card becomes trump suit for the hand. If no player wants to order up the card, each player will then have the opportunity to choose a trump suit.
The team that chooses trump must win 3 tricks to get a point. If the team that doesn't order the dealer to pick up the card wins 3 or more tricks they get 2 points. If the team that chose trump wins all 5 tricks, they get 2 points. If the team that didn't chose trump wins all 5 tricks, they get 5 points.
The first team to win 5 points wins the game.
