Euchre is a trick-taking card game commonly played with four people in two partnerships with a deck of 24 standard playing cards. After the deal a suit is chosen as the trump suit, with the cards of this suit outranking the other suits, called off suits. Cards are ranked as J of trump suit, J of colour matching trump suit, A, K, Q, 10, 9 and off suits as A, K, Q, J, 10, 9. Play is usually clockwise with lead-suit-following card play to a score of 10.
