Excerpt from The Game of Euchre

Of the old and familiar games at cards, Euchre is among the most popular. This fact is due to its extreme simplicity and eminent respectability, for Euchre needs no monetary consideration to make it interesting to its devotees, and therefore suggests nothing of gambling. Like Whist, it is generally played simply as a means of amusement, the contestants being content with victory for victory's sake alone. While it does not tax the memory as severely as Whist, and is generally not so complex in character, Euchre is nevertheless a game of skill, and its many points are worthy of intelligent consideration for the intellectual pastime they afford. As a social game it has always ranked well, and is often found in the bosoms of families where no other game at cards is known, or at least tolerated. That phase of the game known as "Progressive Euchre" has attained especial popularity, and not infrequently is made the sole expedient of an evenings amusement for an unlimited number of pleasure-seekers.
