here is the rules...

although I never play with a joker... http://www.pagat.com/euchre/euchre.html

we always played with 24 cards... I have heard alot of varations of the rules, but NEVER that variation. Like I have heard of screw the dealer, the three 9's rule, playing no suit, but never a best bower?!?

Is a drunks game... once you have played it enough you can start card counting, it is more about drinking than playing cards IMHO

Numbers are too factual for us, we like things that can be taken out of context and be twisted and reshapen to fight our current argument.
