Etiquette Of Euchre
106. The following rules belong to the established Etiquette of Euchre.
They are not called "Laws," as it is difficult, and in some cases
impossible, to apply any penalty to their infraction, and the only
remedy is to cease to play with the players who habitually disregard
107. Two packs of cards of different colors are invariably used at
Clubs, and this should be adhered to if possible.
108. A player having the lead and another winning card to play, should
not draw the second card out of his hand till his partner has played to
the first trick, such act being a distinct intimation that the former
has played a winning card.
109. No intimation whatever by word or gesture should be given by a
player as to the state of the hand or the game after the trump card is
110. A player who desires the cards to be placed, or demands to see the
last trick, should do so for his own information only, and not to
attract the attention of his partner.
111. No player should object to refer to a bystander who professes
himself uninterested in the game and able to decide any disputed
question of fact.
112. It is unfair to revoke purposely; and having made a revoke, a
player is not justified in making a second to conceal the first.
113. Until the players have made such bets as they wish, bets should not
be made with the bystanders.
114. Bystanders should make no remark, nor should they, by word or
gesture, give any intimation of the state of the game until concluded
and scored, nor should they walk around the table to look at the
115. No one should look over the hand of a player against whom he is
116. Players should pass, assist, order up, etc., with as nearly as
possible the same manner at all times, and should be careful not to give
information by unusual quickness or delay.
