|Recurring Program (See all)

An event every week that begins at 1:00pm on Wednesday and Friday, repeating until August 28, 2019

As you may know…Pinochle is a popular card game played with a unique deck of only 48 cards, which contains two of each suite of the Nines, Tens, Jacks, Queens, Kings, and Aces; there are no 2 through 8 rank cards.

The game can be played with either two, three, or four, players. The object is to accumulate points by either winning tricks, or by melding a combination of cards. The meld of the Jack of Diamonds and the Queen of Spades is known as “Pinochle”, and scores 40 points.
Pinochle was brought to the Americas by European immigrants who played “Binochle”, a French version of the Old World Game of “Bezique”.
