    Do any of you all play the card game Euchre?
    I have been playing against 3 computers and sometimes I wonder who programs the computers.
    Cards are dealt and my P is first after dealer. Jack of Diamonds is turned up and my P orders it up making Diamonds trump which also makes the Jack of Diamonds highest trump card.
    My P also goes alone, so that sits me out, which means he has to take all 5 tricks to get 4 points for going alone. So how does a computer compute his hand can take all 5 tricks when it just ordered up the highest trump card into the dealers hand?
    LOL well I guess it was okay for computer to go alone because I couldn't help.
    Sometimes I watch, shake my head, and then say things like you stupid dumb moron idiot you need your plug pulled. LOL good thing it isn't a real person as my P making the stupid plays. I might get punched out for the name calling. NO in real life I wouldn't be name calling out loud, but I probably would be shaking my head for that stupid loaner call.
    So my question is has the computer programmer ever played Euchre?

    I never was much of a card player although I did learn how to play "slap jack" and "go fish". Wasn't much good at blackjack either. I have helped build a lot of casinos in Las Vegas many years ago. They don't build those places on winners, just loosers. I love to play craps! Sometimes I have won but most of the time I lost. So Buster, if you think that puter is cheating you, just don't make any bets on it. They won't let me in Vegas cuz I am a card counter. I happen to know (for those who don't) that there are 52 cards in the deck, therefore I am an accomplished card counter.

    LOL Tommy I know there are 52 cards in a deck and I even know there are 50 states but I sure don't consider myself a card counter.
    Tommy ask your friends in your neighborhood if they know how to play Euchre. You mostly will only find people from OH, PA, MI, and IN that have even heard of it. Yep it is or was basically a Yankee game. It is a fast and pretty simple to learn card game. LOL you don't even use a full deck. I guess since some say I am not playing with a full deck is why I can play Euchre pretty darn good.

    Oh I've played Euchre a lot,back when I was younger. It sounds to me like whoever programmed it isn't very good at it for sure. You're right,going alone in that case is downright stupid. Most people I know don't even try it unless they have both jacks,the ace and usually another trump,that way they've got 4 tricks for sure and hopefully they're off card makes it through.

    Yours & Tommy's description make it sound something like pitch - which I don't remember how to play anyway.

    Check out this site for playing Euchre. It is a fast pace game that is a lot of fun.
    http://www.euchre-cardgame.com/
    People playing online get very serious about winning that they will cheat to be in highest rating.
    It's only a game and I play the computers and take chances to see what works and what doesn't. I think I have gotten better but LOL it might be it just seems that way because I am playing with some dumb computers.
    SH you would be surprised how many times I have made it alone with my off card being a 10. Check out the link and experiment a bit.

    Buster,
    Are you sure there are only 50 states? President Obama one time madea statement that there are 54 states. Is he being funny or is he that stupid?

    I think he said he had visited all 57 states. I think he just had a foopah but who knows he might have been thinking of the future when he transforms America.

    Hey I am doing better getting with it. I used to think there are 52 states.
    I went to a magic show years ago and like a dummy I sat in the front row. The magician was doing a card trick and had me pick a card without him seeing it but the audience could see it. He shuffles the deck while asking me what color was my card. Me figuring I had his butt now because I would choose a different color than what my chosen card was. I told him it was blue since I never saw a blue card before. The audience I'm sure thought I had his butt pinned.
    I'll be danged if he didn't pull my card out and dang if it wasn't blue. Myself and the audience at the same time said wow. I am sure he set me up asking the color but I will be danged if I know how he did it. Especially a blue card.

    I've seen 9s and 10s make the last trick a lot,you got a good chance they can't follow suit.

    Yeah the programmer is stupid,we've set them 3 or 4 times because they made suit on nothing. Shoot they just made it diamonds and we set them with 4 tricks,all they had was the 10 and queen. :cryinglaugh::cryinglaugh: My partner just ordered up clubs to our opponents and didn't have either bar,luckily we made it.:duck:

    I hear ya and it surprises me when other team one P calls trump with 2 low cards and their P actually has the good trump. When playing actual people if I saw that I would think they were cheating.
    My P will trump with his highest trump then lead back with a lower trump which the other team takes with a higher trump. I just want to choke my P. We have been set so many times because he does that.

    Really,my partner's pretty good even though he made trump with only a 10 and queen once and WE got set with 4 tricks. We set the opponents a lot and win most games.

    Well... I clicked on the offered link. It's a pretty well designed bit of software, and I am hooked - at least temporarily.

    Buster,
    I have heard of "choking your chicken" but never choking your P. Is this some sort of "weird cult" that you are into. NOT being nosy, just have a little interest is all. If you want to choke your P, feel free to do so and the word from me us MUM!!!:cheesy:

    You can play here computer or real people, rated or not, best to register because guests don't get played much. It is free but then you get ads in while waiting to play. Or pay and don't have ads. I play free.
    I think they also have tournaments.
    http://www.pogo.com/games/euchre My game screen name is bugthis. I didn't register with facebook and will not.
    I guess I should have followed forum rules and not used P for partner. I have been busted by Tommy.
    Just for that I am going shooting my Sig P226 tomorrow. Strange the target will have a T on it. lol I shoot my best with my Sig. Tommy you are safe......you have seen my shooting skills.
