Quoting Piecar

Was it Euchre, Gretch?

It's called Up the Ladder - Down the Ladder and similar to Euchere as there are bids, tricks and a trump card (suit). Fifteen hands are played in total. First hand, each player only gets one card. Second hand, two cards each. It progresses "up the ladder" to 7 cards (all with a trump suit) then 7 no trump, then back down from 7 trump to 1 trump. Hope that makes sense. Hard to explain without a deck of cards. Definitely fun and my family is cut throat about it.

Woke up in Manchester this morning in a house surrounded by 2 inches of water (hasn't stopped raining for a week).
Weather is just bloody awful and the water is so gravy brown.
Must away to the pound shop to buy another bucket, before I need a snorkel. It's doing my neck in.
