Upping this estimate to 98% luck.

Euchre has a pretty decent amount of skill, moreso with bidding than with play, but still.

Euchre is def 99% luck once you have bidding sort of figured out. So is skip-bo.

Pitch is so much more fun though. But nobody outside the midwest that I know has ever heard of pitch. GOAT holiday family gathering game for sure. (also pretty luck-based but who cares)

You certainly can drink during the experience. Drunk euchre usually means epic alone hands and loltastic steals/euchres. Always good for the game.

Name me a guy who brings more to the table and takes less off it than JeffMaggert. You can't.

This JeffMaggert seeme like he'd make an excellent addition to Skype. I'll just stick him on Epipem. He'll be like the Darrelle Revis of trolls.

Euchre is by far the best card game for drinking and bull****ting.

Euchre not 99% luck. FWIW, I played lots of online euchre with rankings/ladders etc in the late 90's. The very best players, competing with/against other good players, would peak out at 56-57%

Pretty sure nobody ever said that. More like by volume skypetards do it 100X more than anyone else, to the point where it ruins an entire forum.

Probably not too different from backgammon, no doubt more luck but you out-roll or out-card someone there's only so much that skill can overcome.

i'll trust your'e right, I haven't played like a **** ton of euchre. but online euchre sounds not fun at all, I always enjoyed it for a large part for the time spent with friends
