In addition to the 32 cards there are 4 score keeping cards and 1 “Cabinet” or Joker card. The Joker lists the seven Secretarial Departments of the Cabinet that were in effect at the time: Secretary of State, Secretary of Interior, Secretary of War, Secretary of the Navy, Secretary of Treasury, the Attorney General and the Postmaster General. Today, there are 15 Cabinet Secretaries, including the Secretary of Defense which replaced the Secretary of War.

The back of the cards are blue in color. The four score keeping cards are black on the back and labeled as “ Progressive Euchre”on a fancy background.
