Full euchre rules will be:

Euchre Rules:

FIRST JACK DEALS.PLEASE DEAL THE SAME WAY EACH TIME EX: 3 CARDS, 2 CARDS, 2 CARDS, 3 CARDS.

WHEN CALLING TRUMP, YOU MUST SAY “PASS, PICK IT UP OR I’LL GO ALONE”. NO LONG PAUSES. YOU MUST PASS THE SAME WAY EACH TIME, IF YOU ARE PASSING DIFFERENT EACH HAND, YOU WILL GET ONE WARNING. IF YOU GET A SECOND WARNING, THAT PLAY WILL BE OVER AND THE OPPS WILL GET 2 PTS.

WE PLAY STD, (STICK THE DEALER). IF TRUMP IS NOT MADE, THE DEALER MUST CALL TRUMP.

YOU DO NOT NEED TRUMP TO ORDER OR PICK UP.

YOU SHOULD OFFER A CUT TO YOUR RIGHT BEFORE THE DEAL.

IF THERE IS A MISDEAL, THE DEALER MAY RE-DEAL AS LONG AS THE TOP CARD HAS NOT BEEN TURNED UP. ON A SECOND MISDEAL, THE DEAL GOES TO NEXT DEALER.

IF YOU RENEGE IT WILL COST YOU TWO POINTS. THE OPPS WILL RECEIVE FOUR POINTS IF YOU RENEGE ON THEIR LONER CALL. IF THE OPPS RENEGE OR GET EUCHRED ON THEIR LONER CALL, THEIR OPPS WILL GET 2 POINTS.

PLAYING OUT OF TURN, OPPS WILL GET TWO POINTS, FOUR POINTS IF THEY CALL A LONER AND THE HAND IS OVER. DEAL WILL THEN GO TO THE NEXT DEALER. ASK THE OPPS IF YOU CAN LAY ANY CARDS DOWN IF YOU ALREADY HAVE YOUR POINT OR EUCHRED.

IF A CARD IS DROPPED FACE UP OR SHOWN OUT OF TURN, THE OPPS WILL TAKE 2 POINTS, 4 POINTS IF THEY CALL A LONER AND THE DEAL WILL GO TO THE NEXT DEALER.

AFTER TRUMP IS MADE, IT’S OK TO ASK “WHAT’S TRUMP?”, BUT NOT OK TO ASK “WHO’S TRICK” OR TO SAY “THAT’S MINE”.

THE TOP 8 TEAMS WITH THE MOST POINTS AFTER 6 GAMES ADVANCE TO THE SINGLE ELIMINATION TOURNAEMNT. IF THERE IS A TIE, IT WILL BE DETERMINED BY RANDOM DRAW.

WE PLAY 20 MINUTE TIMED GAMES. YOU WILL BE TOLD WHEN THERE’S 5 MINUTES LEFT IN THE GAME SO PLEASE PLAY AT A STEADY PACE SO THE GAME CAN FINISH ON TIME. IF THE GAME IS NOT FINISHED, YOU WILL FINISH THE HAND AND MOVE TO THE NEXT GAME. TIME OUT IF YOU’RE AHEAD. 25 MINUTES IS PLENTY OF TIME TO FINISH.

ANYONE CAUGHT CHEATING WILL BE ASKED TO LEAVE THE GAME. PLEASE IMMEDIATELY CONTACT THE TOURNAMENT DIRECTOR AT THE STAGE IF THERE IS SUSPISION OF CHEATING.

IF A PERSON ACCUSES THEIR OPPS OF RENEGING AND THEY SHOW THEIR CARDS AND PROVE THEY DIDN’T, THE TEAM FALSELY ACCUSED WILL GET 2 POINTS. TO AVOID SITUATIONS LIKE THIS, PLACE YOUR CARDS IN FRONT OF YOU INSTEAD OF TOSSING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE TABLE. EVERYONE SWEEPS THEIR OWN WINNING TRICKS AND KEEPS THE CARDS IN FRONT OF THEM IN ORDER.

IF SOMEONE CALLS A LONER AND THE OPP FALSELY ACCUSES THE CALLER OF A RENEGE, THE LONE PLAYER WILL GET 4 POINTS, EVEN IF THE PLAY IS NOT COMPLETE.

NO PENALTY FOR NOT PLACING YOUR CARDS AS STATED, BUT IF YOU’RE UNABLE TO PROVE YOU DID NOT RENEGE, THE OPPS CAN TAKE 2 POINTS.

PLEASE TRY & LIMIT CONVERSATIONS DURING THE PLAY, IT’S USUALLY VERY DISTRACTING.

AFTER THE FINAL GAME, TURN IN ALL SCORE SHEETS AT THE STAGE.

PLEASE NO “SORE LOSERS”, RUDE BEHAVIOR OR TALKING MEAN BEHIND ANYONE’S BACK. WE’RE HERE TO HAVE FUN! ANY PROBLEMS, GO TO REPORT IT AT THE STAGE.

RULES HAVE BEEN ESTABLISHED BY “COLUMBUS OHIO EUCHRE.” THANKS TO AMY FOR HER ASSISTANCE.
