Bid Euchre is a variation on the classic card game Euchre. The main difference is that you bid for the number of tricks you think you can take and the trump suit. The complete rules can be found in rules.html.
The Bid Euchre program is designed for all platforms, and should compile for Windows, Linux, Mac OS-X, and many others. The Linux binaries haven't been tested yet, only compiled and packaged. Please let us know if they do not work. The GTK+ 2 version is for systems with GTK+ >= 2.0, and the GTK+ 1.2 is for systems with GTK+ >= 1.2.

Added Mac OS-X Binary for 0.73
SourceForge has restored their OS-X compile farm hosts, and I have added a Mac OS-X Binary for version 0.73. I have tested this version and it seems to work for the 30 seconds I played. Much better than before.

Updated Bid Euchre to Version 0.73 (mostly)
Some excellent improvements to the AI, however I can't compile a Mac OS-X binary until SourceForge fixes their OS-X hosts in the compile farm. They assure me they will get around to responding to me within 5 business days. I guess I can't complain, since there would be no mac binaries without them. The Win32 and Linux binaries have been updated to 0.73 though. Sorry it doesn't look as good on Linux. I promise I'll fix it when I have time.
I have removed the Mac OS-X binary since it doesn't work. I promise 0.73 will work if I can ever compile it. I know what's wrong with the older versions and I have it fixed in the 0.73 source. So if you have a mac, you could compile it yourself.

Updated Bid Euchre to Version 0.72
I fixed the Windows Installer so it would install the proper DLL files. Sorry if you downloaded 0.70 or 0.71 and it didn't run. The AI is slightly smarter in this version, too.

Updated Bid Euchre to Version 0.71
No major improvements, but I think there was code in 0.70 that may have caused crahes or hangs on Linux or Mac. Since I still can't test those platforms, I don't know, but I removed some bad code. I also added Mac OS-X binaries for PPC Mac.
