Euchre is a trick-taking card game played in many parts of the world. Conventional euchre is a four-player trump game, wherein the players are paired to form two partnerships. Partners face each other from across the table so that the play of the cards in conventional clockwise order alternates between the two partnerships. Conventional euchre uses a deck of 24 standard playing cards consisting of A, K, Q, J, 10, and 9 of each of the four suits. A poker deck can be used, omitting the cards from 2 to 8, but a pinochle deck may be divided in half to form two euchre decks. Each player is dealt five cards in clockwise order, usually in groups of two or three cards each. The remaining four cards are referred to as the kitty or the blind and are placed face down in front of the dealer toward the center on the table. The top card of the blind is then turned face up. When a suit is named trump, any card of that suit outranks any card of a non-trump suit. The highest ranking card in euchre is the jack of the trump suit and is referred to as the right bower. The second highest ranking card is the jack of the suit of the same color as the trump suit; this card is called the left bower. Remaining cards of the trump suit rank from high to low as A, K, Q, 10, and 9. In non-trump suits, the jacks are not special, and the cards of those suits rank from high to low as A, K, Q, J, 10, and 9.
