Cards 500 Laurimar

    LOCATION: Laurimar Community Activity Centre, 110 Hazel Glen Drive Doreen DESCRIPTION: 500 or five hundred is now the national card game of Australia. Also called Bid Euchre (but not to be confused with another game of the same name) it is a trick-taking game that is an extension of euchre with some ideas from bridge. For two to six players it is most commonly played by four players in partnerships. 500 is a social card game.

    HISTORY: It arose in America before 1900 and was promoted by the United States Playing Card Company, which copyrighted and marketed the rules in 1904. It has been taught through six generations community-wide, and in other countries: Australia, New Zealand, Canada (Quebec) and Shetland.
