Écarté is a two-player card game originating from France, the word literally meaning "discarded". It is a trick-taking game, similar to Whist, but with a special and eponymous discarding phase. It is closely related to Euchre, a card game played mainly in the USA, and it seems likely that Écarté is the game from which Euchre was developed. Écarté was popular in the 19th century, but is now rarely played. [Wikipedia]
