MVP Euchre is a Windows version of the classic card game. Pick a computer partner and computer opponents, or play with other humans over a network or the internet. Only the cards from Ace down to 9 (or 8 or 7, depending on the rules chosen) are used. Each player gets 5 cards and plays one card per hand. There is no bidding in this version of Euchre; your goal is always to win at least 3 of the 5 tricks. In every round the players must choose a trump suit, at which point the Jack of that suit, followed by the the other Jack of the same color, become the high cards of the trump suit. After the first card is played in each hand, all other players must play a card from the same suit if they can. The highest card of the suit being played, or the highest trump card, wins the trick. If you have a good hand, you can elect to play alone, and your partner sits out. You get 1 point if you and your partner win 3 or 4 tricks, and 2 points if you get a "march" of 5 tricks. A march is worth 4 points if you play alone. If the dealer and his partner win 3 or more tricks, you have been "euchred" and they score 2 points. Version 1.3 comes with a Win32 installer on MVP's website now, but the game is still Win16 once installed. There are 3 beginner and 3 intermediate computer players to play with or against, with 3 experts added to the Deluxe version.
