Pinochle is a trick-taking card game for two to four players played with a 48-card deck. Players score points by trick-taking and also by forming combinations of cards into melds. Each hand is played in three phases: bidding, melds, and tricks. Whether you’re new to pinochle, or you’re just curious, you’re invited to join our weekly pinochle games. Sessions last about 2 hours, and the suggested contribution is $1/person.
