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.

Why is it that admins pop into rooms that have a password, but refuses to answer when they are asked how they are doing?

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.

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.

The people that play these games are the rudest people I have ever came in contact with.  They have no respect for anybody.

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

@David T #1 - Leaderboard updates every 12 hours and you have to had played the entire game without bots.  #2 When you join one of the chat rooms, look in the lower left corner and select my picture.  then select the Facebook tab on the upper left side.  and finally #3 - Quit complaining about a FREE game.  If you don't like it, don't play it!

@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.

GreatNana94533

@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.

@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.

@David T @GreatNana94533 Feel better now?  I don't care if you were the first person to play here.  It's a FREE site.  No one forces you to play it.  I honestly don't care if you're here or not, or if your squeaky wheel gets the GREASE.  (notice squeaky is spelled correctly, and the proper term is used - grease).  I have not seen anything changed in the 4 years I've been here.  I repeat:  IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT HERE THEN DON'T PLAY HERE.  You or any of your 20 different screen names.  Oh, and thanks for your "helpful feedback" and have a good life.

@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 Listen~ill be nice this time around, however, its seems to me you comment on everything in here,and you add some sarcasm when you do it...i know its a free site, everyone needs to vent from time to time, so a little advice,; if you dont want people to say mean things to you try being a little more sensitive to how someone else is feeling...Like if someone is really angry about something that is happening here and are showing frustration it might no be a good time to be sarcastic about there situation... just sayin.. however if in my frustration i didnt have the right to swear and curse at you..you caught me at a bad time...im not usually like that... just be aware of other peoples feelings instead of trying to be the hero..I mean look at you...you are basically picking on me for the whole post, spelling and all..really?

and you dare comment about my post..whatever, i have way too many things going to to even address this issue but someone close to me pointed out that i might have been a little harsh so today i do apologize ....

@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.
