 Scoring Chart
In most types of normal euchre (excluding many types of "bid euchre"), you do not get points for how many tricks you score, you get points for meeting the minimums or achieving certain goals. Here is a simple chart for newbies to use as reference. For some styles of euchre scoring changes. Most notably, super-euchred scoring only applies if that option is turned on. For playing without partnerships, the "with partner" points are used, not the alone points.

Goal Achieved With Partner   Going Alone  
maker march (wins all tricks) 2 points 4 points
maker saves (usually by winning 3 or more tricks) 1 points 1 points
defender euchred maker (maker did not save) 2 points 4 points
defender super-euchred maker (defender march) 4 points 4 points
