Do you play euchre? My family has always played it whenever we get together for holidays. It’s always a riot, with my uncle trying to sneakily deal multiple times in a row (according to him, the rule is you have to catch him before he starts dealing). As we tend to play during the holidays, sometimes we get into a state where remembering trump is difficult! Well, the Euchre Cube is sure to come in handy.
Euchre is a trick-taking card game, in which a particular suit is the “trump” and will always beat any other suit, or lower cards of the same suit. The particular rules used differ from region to region, but the Wikipedia article goes into a lot of detail. It’s a great game to play if you have four people together celebrating a holiday!
The Euchre Cube is made from laser-cut birch and acrylic and uses RGB LEDs that gently fade, change colour, or blink depending on the orientation. It runs off of 2 CR2032 batteries and automatically times out after three hours. If you have a Euchre-loving member of your family, this is a great birthday or holiday gift!
It might not stop my uncle from slyly dealing twice in a row, but at least we’ll always know what suit is trump! Check out the video below for a demo:
