Euchre is a classic trick-taking card game played between two teams of two players each. Utilizing a specialized 24-card deck—comprising only the 9, 10, Jack, Queen, King, and Ace—teams aim to be the first to score 10 points. 

Each player receives five cards, and you play one card at a time; the player who lays the highest card in the suit of the first card played — unless someone contributes a trump, in which case it is whoever lays the highest trump card — collects all four cards together and stacks the cards in front of them, thus taking the trick.

In Euchre, you win a hand and score points for taking the majority of the tricks in a hand, which means winning three or more of the five tricks available. You get more points if you take all five tricks. The first to a specified total of points, generally ten, wins the match.

You play the game with partners, but under special circumstances, one member of a partnership can elect to go solo if they think that going alone is worthwhile.

Another variation, Double Deck Bid Euchre, uses a 48-card deck, giving 12 cards to each player. There are two teams of two players each. The minimum bid is three, and the winning bid is the highest bid. If the player makes the bid, they get one point for each trick the team takes. If the team with the highest bid fails to make their bid, they lose points equal to their bid. Their opponents get one point for each trick they take. The game is won by the first team to score 36 points.

This pack is a double pack of 48 cards and includes rules and counter cards for scoring.
