I'm reading up on Truco and it sounds like a great deal of fun. I'm especially liking what I'm reading about the bluffing aspect of it.

Yeah, the bluffing is a huge part of it, just because the betting structure is so fluid. That said, I really have no interest in the like, exploit speech errors part of the game, like, 'Retruco.' 'You can't retruco, it's not your turn.' 'You said "retruco"!!!! Don't mind if I do!!'

Let the record show that Nick Ink has thoroughly beaten me at Clobyosh today. He was too sporting to tally up exactly how badly, but I would put him at nearly 550 to my low 414 or so.

In fairness, I had Greg ply him with beverages and sweetmeats beforehand though, so that he was sufficiently woozy when the time came to crush him like a bug.

Woah, woah, when next either of you want an online clobyosh game, count me in. If we can manage something between the timezones.

I have learned how to play euchre. I am at the novice's point where it is fun and I'm not bad at it, but I can't see any potential for long term enjoyment. No doubt there's lots, but I can't see it yet.

the fun is all in the smack talk.  But you can get that doing anything pretty much.

oh man, throw in some marijuana and ragingly unsubtle hints to partners to pick it up, locate it in a midwestern basement, and you have every single sunday of 1995-96 until 120 minutes came on for me.

don't think i've played euchre since then, so probably right on the long term enjoyment.

My grandmother taught me euchre. And how to make massive, ridiculous risks like making trumps on the basis of a queen and a ten or such and such. Its a great game. Do you play 500 as well? thats like euchre with balls

I don't though I've seen it mentioned in relation. I have a bias against card games named after numbers. (Except cuarenta)

That's like the best run of poker I've ever had excepting that time I went to Vegas

Ugh speaking of cuarenta, just got stomped for forty minutes. I think fishing games have the potential to be the cruelest games in the hand of a skilled opponent.

Do you use some non-specific card playing client?

Sometimes, yeah. There's VASSAL and Wildcard (latter OS X only). But a lot of games, including cuarenta, actually have flash versions, though often not in English, and a lot have downloadable versions too.
