On this page exists an excellent euchre program for the PC.
Euchre Version 3.2.3 is the latest Windows version of my DOS card game that I originally released in 1996. The look and feel of the old game is there, but in a Windows version with many new features! Download Now
Euchre is a card game that pits you and a computer partner against two computer partners. The program features great graphics, customizable sounds using wav files (you can use your own too), background music, large text font, help and suggestions, and a learn-as-you-play mode available for trump calling and card playing. Computer players are worthy opponents, but don't cheat. Card playing logic is based on many wasted hours playing at college and many more hours developing the program. Many have said this program is better than the Hoyle or Bicycle versions.
Many options are available by menus and a new Options screen including many regionalized rule variations. Game statistics are kept for up to twenty different players. Will run in Windows 951, 98, Me, NT, 2000, XP, Vista, Windows 7 & Windows 8 (Sorry WinCE, Palm, Linux, and Mac users). I have recieved word that it will run in Linux using Wine, but can't verify at this time. It is a 32-bit application that will run on both 32 and 64-bit systems. Online rules of euchre are included as well as detailed explanations of all menu options in a help file.

With a new install & program release (3.2.3), the program will run on Windows 8. It doesn't show up in the "Metro" so make sure you are at the Desktop.
Old News: I've been working for some time on a new version that includes new graphics (see preview here) and including new options or fixing problems sent in by users or mentioned at other places and and have made progress, but it's not moving as quickly as hoped. I hope to renew my efforts and hopefully get something new out in 2013. I don't think it will include internet play, but the new graphics and new options will still be awesome.
