We have a pinochle table or two going nearly every day that the Senior Center is open! The game is a big favorite here. If you don’t know how to play, we have a group of Seniors who would love to teach you. It’s a fun card game that is played with a unique deck of only 48 cards, which contains two of each suit of the Nines, Tens, Jacks, Queens, Kings, and Aces, there are no 2 through 8 rank cards. Pinochle can be played with either two, three, or four players. The object of the game 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.
