  1. Clabber

    Clabber is a four player trick-taking card game that is played in Southwestern Indiana, near Evansville, IN. Clabber is a member of the Jack-Nine family of card games that are popular in Europe. The game is a four player variation of Klaberjass, which was brought to the area by 19th century German immigrants. The game differs from Euchre in that you are not awarded the number of tricks you take, but the actual point value of cards in those tricks. Additional points can also be scored for a combination of cards in your hand.

Chambers 20th Century Dictionary

  1. Clabber

    klab′ėr, n. (Scot.). [Gael. clabar, mud.]
