Enjoy Euchre on your iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad!
Euchre is fun card game played by four people. In this version of Euchre, a deck of 24 cards is used. You play with a computer partner against two computer opponents.
In the Lite version of Euchre you can play against beginner computer opponents. The score to win defaults to 10 points but it can be changed in the game options.
This is a great game to play when you only have a few minute or you can even play for a few hours… The cards are good looking, are easy to read, and are easy to move around. This game is a pleasure to play!
- The score to win a game is configurable
- Players can play alone
- Game statistics
- Fast gameplay! (speed is configurable)
You'll hate your AI partner
This is a well-designed app, in that it's easy to use and navigate, plus it looks nice enough on the eyes.
But the AI... Good god almighty, the AI is the absolute worst. Others have noted it already, but it can't be said too many times: your partner is the absolute worst. Picks up a 9 when it's sitting on a Queen-King, as if that's a hand worth trying. It routinely gets us euchred 3, sometimes 4 hands per game. It is ridiculously stupid, and will play its hand in the most absurd order imaginable: leads with a 10 of trump, goes and plays a random queen, then returns with the right bower two tricks later.
If it were a real person, I'd have strangled the AI partner both out of frustration and in order to keep its brand of stupidity out of the gene pool. Since that's not realistic, I'll just delete the app instead.
Partner is an aggravation
I find this game entertaining and addicting. However the computer players are inexperienced beginners especially "my" partner. Too often calls trump with few or low cards. The most aggravating thing it does is call trump and then lead with a 9 of trump!!! Really???? If you're leading with trump on the first play you better have a bower (sp). The low cards are best used for trumping other players-hence the purpose of trump cards.
Best out there!
Truth is that if you are playing the game like it SHOULD be played, it is awesome. Call "next" lead trump, and the like. If you play like a beginner then you will get set and you'll get set a lot. You need to be a good partner, even if it is an AI you're playing with.
