If you live in Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky or Pennsylvania (“the Euchre belt”) Euchre
might be a familiar pastime or at least well, familiar. The game is not exclusive to those areas but is most concentrated in the Midwest. It used to be one of the most popular card games the U.S.
but lost out to bridge. Today the game has somewhat of a cult following in Midwest towns and especially on college campuses
. It is a fast paced thinking game that combines strategy
and skill with luck that can eat away hours of a person’s life. If you have never played the game I encourage you to read an introduction
and try yahoo games
. (I hope this is not too common to bring up, but I rarely see anyone playing online not from the states listed above.) Warning popups.
