I have started a Github repo for a set of functions to carry out the game of Euchre. Please check it out if this is something you are interested in.
I'm mainly doing this to stay sharp on my Python skills and flush out any holes in my programming.
My strategy is to get a working game going in the terminal and then work on a OOP implimentation.
Euchre or eucre (/ˈjuːkər/) is a trick-taking card game commonly played in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Great Britain, and the United States. It is played with a deck of 24, 28, or 32 standard playing cards. Normally there are four players, two on each team, although there are variations that range from two to nine players.
Euchre was responsible for introducing the joker into the modern deck of cards. The Joker Deck was introduced to Americanized Euchre around 1860 with the joker acting as a top trump or best Bower (from the German word Bauer, "farmer", denoting also the Jack – see Bester Bube). Euchre is believed to be closely related to the French game Écarté, the seventeenth-century game Loo, and the 19th-century game Juckerspiel. It may be sometimes referred to as Knock Euchre to distinguish it from Bid Euchre.
