To play two-handed euchre, you use the same rules as for regular euchre, but you give a dummy hand two cards instead of one. If the dealer is told to take the turn card from the top of the deck, the opponent can take the cards from the fake hand.
A standard deck of cards is used to play euchre with two people.
Putting out and picking cards
The dealer and the other player each get five cards, which are dealt in sets of two and then three. The dummy hand also gets two cards. The rest of the cards are put in front of the dealer, face up, with the turn card showing. opponent gets to say Trump’s name first. If the opponent tells the dealer to take the turn card, the opponent can take dummy hand cards and get rid of two of the seven cards he has in his hand. If the opponent passes, the dealer can take the turn card, the dummy hand, and three of the eight cards in his hand and throw them away.
If the dealer doesn’t take the turn card, the other player can choose another suit as trump. If he doesn’t, the dealer has to say “trump” and take cards from the kitty.
Using two hands to play euchre
The person on the other side of the table goes first, and the game continues as usual. To make a point, the other player must take three tricks. If a player takes all five tricks, they get two points.
