February 28, 2017 Describe your last attempt to learn something that did not come easily to you.

Euchre... this game may be the end of me.

There is a game site I joined 13 years ago, both sisters and my brother joined at the same time. A couple of nights a week, we'd all meet up there to play a game or two, mostly just to chat.

This website also offers badges and challenges. They're really kind of fun to earn. Recently, they offered a challenge in Euchre. I had never played, so I thought I'd give it a try.

After a couple miserable losses, with no idea what I was doing, I started searching online for rules, game play, etc.

Reading the documentation makes sense. I get that. It's just that actual play is nothing like the documentation.

Ordering up, ordering up alone, take up, take up alone, what does that even mean?

Oh, and even when a trump has been declared, a jack from another suit with a matching color beats a trump card...

Just typing this out is making my head hurt!
