Are you a Euchre or Spades player looking for a game? Come join us in Palatine.
Our group includes Euchre and Spades players who like to get together to play regularly. We have veteran players, beginners, and all newby's are welcome to come out and learn to play.
It's a relaxed, social atmosphere and a great way to meet others and get out for a night of fun!
We play on Monday evenings at Fox & Hound & Alley 64. The establishment is not charging us for use of the room, so a food or drink purchase is required from all attendees. About half of the group typically comes early for dinner. They have an extensive menu, and they have a beer specials.
We play Euchre on the 1st & 3rd Mondays and Spades on the 2nd and 4th Monday of each month. And when we have a 5th Monday of the month we might still want to get together to play...and there will be no charge for the 5th Monday!
If you need a refresher on how to play, here are a couple of websites:
EUCHRE HOUSE RULES:
Are decided by table, as long as 5 cards are dealt w/in 2 rounds that works, we do play "stick the dealer". We do NOT follow Hoyle rules due to the fact he was dead before Euchre was invented! So please don't quote Hoyle Rules!
When a loaner hand is called the round plays the same...NOT the left of the dealer!
SPADES HOUSE RULES:
Game Played in Partners, and you don't have to have a partner to play...there are plenty of people....and we are always shuffling people around!
