Book Description:
Sprinkled with literary quotes and little jests, this is a history of and guide to playing Euchre, with a short portion on playing 5-card draw poker. Some of the major differences between the described game and modern Euchre include the following:

Today, a game is generally played to 10 points, rather than 5 . This will also change the "playing to the Bridge" discussion in this work.
Today, only the 9, 10, J , Q, K, and A cards are used .
Today, when a player announces they are playing alone, their partner cannot take the privilege of playing alone away from them.
Often today, when a player orders up their partner , the player must play alone.
Lap, Slam, Jambone, and Jamboree are not variations of the game that are common today.

Other minor differences also exist. However, it is still an informative work for those who are new to the game, as well as a look back to the card tables of the previous century.
