♣️♥️ Fall Euchre Tournament and Potluck! ♠️♦️
It’s tourney time again! While we still have warm weather, Dave and Barb have offered us their beautiful home in Los Altos for an autumn potluck euchre tournament. We will be playing tournament style with a small cash buy-in ($5) to add a little excitement to the afternoon. Game play will start with some friendly warm up hands at noon, and then the tournament will begin promptly at 1:00. Details of location, items to bring for the potluck, and the rules of the tournament will be sent to those who RSVP yes. We will cap the RSVPs at 20. Please, do not RSVP “yes” unless you are certain that you will be able to attend. We had a number of no-shows last time. Let Mark know if you have any questions.

What we're about

Euchre - Have fun and meet new people! Are you a transplant from the midwest looking for a euchre game? Or just a card player looking to learn a new game and socialize? Euchre is a trick-taking card game most commonly played with four people in two partnerships. Kind of like bridge, kind of like hearts or spades... The rules are kind of funky, but it's easy to learn, fun to play, and very social.

Typically this is how it works with the different numbers of people who show up:

3 people - Game on with three handed euchre
4 people - Game on!
5 people - Game on plus one person rotates out each game and can get food/dinner.
6 people - Game on plus the losing team rotates out and can play cribbage or backgammon (or any other two person game), or get food. We will always rotate both people in for the next game.
7 people - Game on plus a game of three handed euchre, or a combination of 2+1, or everyone eats :)
8 people - Game on! x 2
