Pinochle is a trick-taking game for four players and played with a 48 card deck. Pinochle players score points by trick-taking and also by forming combinations of cards into melds. Play with friends or on your own. Pinochle (sometimes pinochle, or penuchle), is a trick-taking game typically for two, three or four players and played with a 48 card Pinochle deck. Derived from the card game bezique, Pinochle players score points by trick-taking and also by forming combinations of cards into melds. Pinochle is thus considered part of a "trick-and-meld" category which also includes a cousin, belote. Each pinochle hand is played in three phases: bidding, melds, and tricks.

Question:  when playing on line pinochle, how would you send meld?  I've been asked many times "don't you know how to send meld?"  I know how to meld but how would you send it?

ok- figured out why facebook profile pic wasnt working.. Dont sign in via facebook sign in via games.com which is affiliated with aol.make a screen name if you dont have one already in aol/games.com. when you enter a game room go to your own profile by going to your name in the chat area,when you hovor over your name you will see view profile and click on it..when in your profile you will see a little lock up near your name..unlock it and go to your to the spot where your picture would be. hit the little icon that pops up and choose a picture from your pictures located in your computer..most likely your facebook profile is there because facebook sync's with your computer.. Find the picture you want and hit open. your photo will show up on your profile page in games.com.. then you need to log out and log in again .. when you get to the game of your choice go to the my picture tab.. then go to the facebook tab and your photo will show up there..then go out and play your game with your new photo...sounds like alot but it really isnt...this is only for people who cant get there profile picture from face book to work.. for some reason some of us can get it to work properly.. when you are in your game and can see your photo on the table in the corner of your picture it will say aol instead of facebook logo but who cares , you got your photo in there... good luck..

I have gotten over 700 in two different  games in last year, no bot another p and his name got mentioned on leaderboard not mine, and I even had the double run both times. I would think they would mention both names.  No big deal, I know I won, just curious and others have asked same.  I do agree with you that alot come on to vent. or take fraustrations out on others.  It is free, and if I don't  like something at a table, I  just tell them GL and leave. Unless they are rude I let them have it first and than leave, just cant let someone do that and not retaliate(LOL)


People like you and Cilly are very helpfull .. in different situations and should be appreciated.  Thanks Ade

Finally after nearly 25 games I have finally won a game....which is unusual....and I admit it was a dogfight. Lost a couple of hands in which I took the bid. The computer opponent who plays before me always pushed for a counter almost as if it was known I had no ace to take the book. I'm telling you, the monitor on this needs their head examined. The games online are supposed to be fun and relaxing, yet challenging, not abusive and harassing. And bad play on behalf of a computer/partner is harassing!

this is so interesting...I've played 5 games since commenting on 5 aces in trump and the monitor has sought to ensure every hand I take is lost...either by bad play on part of the computer/partner or the computer opponents have more trump than I do. this is so shallow.

ewjazzed01

this is a screwed up game. I selected trump with a run. The opponents played 3 aces of trump and then miraculously play a 4th ace of trump. what's with that?

The description provided for this game is for single deck pinochle when the game offered is double deck pinochle.  The rewards in this game are not appropriate, for example the leaderboard is based on a high score, which is meaningless.  The leaderboard should be based on winning percentage or even most wins.  Another example is when a team pulls all of the tricks (very infrequent and difficult), the team should be rewarded with a win of the game and a large number of points.


I enjoy playing this game online but note that it is very slow when playing with other people.

@pattcakewright SENDING MELD is how you BID that tells your partner how much meld you have to share towards the hand. There are various signals to send a meld bid. Here are a few examples.  For every 10 meld you have to OFFER ( not including a run if you have one ) you would go up 1 number higher. So if the person before you bid 52 and you have 30 meld ( maybe a dbl pino ) your bid would go up 3 numbers- 1 for each 10 meld you have. So your bid would be 55. Three up from the 52 before you.

Next there are other bids you can give your partner. Ex. If the bid STARTS with you and you have aces around ( at least 1 ace in each suit ) you would start the bid with 51  not the normal 50. That lets your partner know you have aces. Then there is another bid which is called a JUMP BID.. after the bid gets to 60 it goes up by 5s. You can no longer give those 3 numbers up for the 30 so, if you have 30 PLUS meld and were not able to let your partner know before the bid got to 60 you then do the JUMP BID which is, jumping up 10 numbers. So the bid would come to you at 60, you cannot bid 63 because it is by 5s now so your bid would be 70. Not all people play the same. But the bidding usually stays the same. Those are just a few bidding tips. 

If you see me playing feel free to come to my table, I will be happy to play a game with you so you can get the feel of meld bidding without the pressure of a serious game. Also, if you don't see me, I am sure if you go into the lobby ( if it isn't being held hostage by the political ranters group) and ask... someone will help you with a few practice hands. Use CAPS if the lobby is busy with chat. Someone will see  you. :)

I hope this was helpful to you. Good Luck

@dbadboyzme123 Ialways sign in via facebook after logging on to games.com (but not through aol).  Have had no problems with avatars "yet" - thanks for the tips.

@alinibelledame thank you so much for your kind words!  Sorry your score didn't make it to the leaderboard.  I usually play on private tables just  to avoid the drama of dealing with some of the "not too bright" players.  I'm a very skilled player, and love beating the bots.  HAHAHAHA  If you believe that, come talk to me about some property I have down in the Florida Everglades swamp

@alinibelledame Thank you Ade. So much is lost in text and when Nana tries to help with explaining it's a FREE game site and gets crap for it, well it's BS !!  

I know you don't post here Ade so for you to say something means a lot to me and I am sure Nana also. We only try to help

@David T  if you play with bots it wont count you also have to start a game with 1 other person

@ewjazzed01 REALLY?  You're going to argue about playing with bots?  Play live games with real people.  The bots are there for entertainment only.  Once you learn how they play, they're quite easy to beat actually.  I beat 'em most of the time.

@jwkess46 it's a free game.  we don't have yahoo anymore.  I don't play for rewards, I play because I enjoy playing.  The leaderboard is meaningless, and I don't really care who is on it or not.  Oh, and yes, I've been on it myself, but big deal.  No one forces you to play here, but good luck finding another site half as good as this one.

@ediemarie what is really sad is that the people on the site were on the whole very nice people until yahoo shut down their pinochle game a month or so ago and they all came over here. So try looking at peoples profiles when you are thinking that they are just rude because in all probability they are from Yahoo and are just plain rude and crude people.

@edienolan please don't feel that way.  there are a lot of very nice people here.  don't judge us all by comparing us to a few idiots.

@Kmaggi0621 you earn stars as you play any of the games on games.com.  you can get your avatar once you log into one of the chat rooms - look over in the lower left corner.  If you choose to just sign in with Facebook, you will automatically see your FB profile picture until you set up an avatar here.  Hope this helps.

GreatNana94533

@william.joman not a lot of choices.  this site is pretty good actually, nowhere near the drama that Yahoo had.  no ratings, people seem nicer for the most part.  Scroll up and select a lounge.  you can play with live players or with bots.  The bots take a little getting used to because they always bid their exact meld in their hands, including any run they may have, so don't expect 20 meld on a 52 bid.

@Rhonda C @David T  Which basicaally sucks because i was never made aware of this..no one shot me an email about this change...i used to make high scores on privet tables by myself ...so please excuse my frustration..but im also dealing with other issues concerning this sight , like why cant i get my facebook profile picture as my avatar? Its just never ending with this site whether it is free or not it is still frustrating...

@GreatNana94533 @jwkess46 

There is 2 other sites for live pino that I know of: Pogo.com ( must join club $) Mystic Island, do not have to join club ($) .. They are just as good if not better than this site. And yes, I play all 3.

@Libraaa1 @GreatNana94533 @jwkess46 I don't care for Pogo pinochle at all.  I also refuse to pay to avoid their ads.  IF I go on Pogo, I take a break during the ads.  Mystic Island requires download.  Not crazy about giving a gaming site access to my computer, no matter how safe it is.  I'll just stay here, but thanks for sharing these sites.  Others may enjoy them.

@GreatNana94533 @David T  Well Nana, the man has a point. If he has 20 different personalities it is definitely going to be a challenge to get all 20 pictures on here.  So I guess you just gotta give him a vbreak.
