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.

I see the cheaters are filling our leaderboard again.  Having fun tommyaces174 and BIGH5753?  Makes you feel really accomplished right?  Not nearly as accomplished as those under you who actually EARNED theirs!

Question:  Had two Ops bidding 500, even 800, purposely going set and telling my P and I to "meld out."    What is the reason for this odd behavior?  They didn't seem to be angry at each other or us......  Confused.....    B

Hello,  Why  isn't it printed when someone loses  a  pinochle game.   it used to say--" We sent set" or "We set our partners"?  I just missed this lately.   Thank you 

GreatNana94533

@Doctorgeri generally, when your partner is first to bid and bids 50, that means they have something and are looking for meld help.  If they are first and bid 51, that means they have aces around.  Then, if they bid 52 or two more than the previous bid, that mean they have 20 meld, etc.  IF they open the bidding with 59, that is double aces around.  there are meld charts available online which show the values.  Unfortunately, the bots don't follow these guidelines.  The bot will bid it's total meld including any run in it's hand.  Don't count on getting 30 meld from a bot if it had a 53 opening bid.

@denyse_jones1 just scroll up to where the chat rooms are listed and click on one of them - Double Run and Aces Around are the most popular

@mistyjoyce1 they are just different "lobbies" or "rooms" you can go in and find table to play on.  No difference other than the names.

@GreatNana94533 No way possible to get such a score. That score came from a "cheater program".  Though I am sure he won't get any games from anyone that sees that score up there. IF it were a GLITCH,  the numbers would have doubled. Example: 196,196  As it is not that way, I am sure it is a cheater program.

@Bonnie5 Bonnie, they may think it is what some call " bidder gitters"... Like it was on yahoo... however, it isn't that way here. it is HIGH SCORE wins as most know. If the score was close and the game was close to being over, all you had to do was SAVE your meld by taking the 20 points and hopefully you had enough to get to 500. I hope you WON.

@CILLYSNOW @GreatNana94533 thank you Snow Woman.  I didn't think there was any way to do that.  If someone wants their name up on the leaderboard THAT badly, and they hafta cheat to do it, I say go ahead on.  Folks will catch on and not play.  ((hugs my friend))

@CILLYSNOW @Bonnie5 Thank you, Cilly.  We did win but felt like an empty victory.  They were over 2,000 pts in the hole; don't get the point.  B

@laverne14 @CILLYSNOW @GreatNana94533 REALLY????  just who in the hell died and named you Boss?  Stupid @$$ - go sober up and come back when you can make some sense.  CillySnow is the very LAST person here to cheat.  Normally, the only ones who call others cheaters are idiots who don't know how to play, or cheaters themselves.  Let me just say this;  DON'T GO AWAY MAD, JUST GO AWAY!

@GreatNana94533 WELL LOOK AT YOU GR8 NANA UP THERE ON THAT LEADERBOARD YOURSELF!!!  BRAVO MY FRIEND

@Bonnie5 @CILLYSNOW You are welcome Bonnie. When you stay at a game where ppl are doing that, you are basically allowing them to hold  you hostage. I try to always remember it is a GAME and try to laugh and have fun with everyone there. Even if the laughing is at the ops that play the game like it's for their 1st born.. Personally, I would have LEFT.. No win is worth  frustration ..

@GreatNana94533 @CILLYSNOW I think you should give lessons to the one that had to use his CHEATER PROGRAM on how to win without help.. You should go look at SPADES high score on the leaderboard.
