    Red face Euchre anyone?

    Hey, does anyone know for certain if there is an open euchre league or game happening on a regular basis in SSM, Canada?

    I should add that we are in our sixties and are allergic to smoke. Not real pro players either, but we do get by. Anyone still interested in including my wife and me for a trial go?

    It's a fun card game that's been around for years. Not all that hard to play.

    Not quite in our 60's, but most of the folks we play with are in their 60's. Nobody smokes either, avid anti-smoking here. PM me, and I'll have you in my messages. Next time we play, I'll drop you an invite.

    The game of Euchre must not be very nice and I say that with never having played the game. Most everyone in my family refers to having a problem as being "euchred" so I am assuming this to being a bad thing. It is along the lines of " my 4x4 is stuck in the bush and I am euchred" or "if such and such happens you are euchred". So I affiliate bad things happening with being "euchred" so I will pass. Not that I was invited I'm just sayin'.

    Poetic! So you see my analogy works in this case.

    I love euchre. I have not played that game in a few years. Hard to find people who actually know how to play, and you have to have a good partner

    I bet it's been 20 years since I've played that game.

    I never have anyone to play with.

    Euchre is a lot like sex. If you don't have a good partner you better have a good hand!
    When I make up a lie and can not back out of it, I will just say I am leaving town for a funeral and that should cover up the lie.
    Self-laudation abounds among the unpolished; but nothing can stamp a person more sharply as ill-bred.

    If you can't feed them, don't breed them!

    Well yeah, you either use your partners' hand or your own, whichever gets the job done better.
