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

Euchre, 1st & 3rd Tuesdays @ River Rock Taproom, Sunnyvale

River Rock Taproom

We are in Sunnyvale, on 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of the month. We are a small inclusive group that are happy to teach new people Euchre and are even willing to play with those that keep score the "wrong" way. Hope to see you there!

River Rock is a restaurant, with a full food (and drinks) menu, so under 21 players are welcome. Located in downtown Sunnyvale, parking behind River Rock is often hard to find, but there is plenty at the hidden parking structure at S. Taaffe St./Altair Way. For those of you taking public transit, it is an easy walk from the Sunnyvale CalTrain station.

Gourmet Haus Staudt

Our 4th Tuesday of the month game! This is a restaurant, so if you have someone under 21 who is interested in playing, they can join us. And remember, spread the love and bring a friend. :)

Spring Euchre Tournament and Potluck!!!

Location visible to members

NOTE: This is a tournament for players of all experience levels, but you must have some experience playing euchre before. If you have not played euchre and would like to learn before the tournament, please come to one of our Tuesday games in Redwood City or Sunnyvale. This is not an event to learn how to play euchre for the first time.

Dave and Barb have once again offered us their beautiful home in Los Altos for our spring potluck euchre tournament. We will be playing tournament style at outdoor tables, 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. Let Mark know if you have any questions.
