yes, i spelled pinochle wrong

it is a game played similar to spades but a bit more complex. it is almost like two games rolled into one. the first portion, wagers are made around the board until someone cedes. the winner declares trump for that round. at this juncture, after someone has won the bidding, players add up points they have in their hand. points are assessed based on card combinations, i am not going to list them. then the second part of the game is played. this portion is almost identical to spades.

oh hell, lemme just find a site to explain

Yeah, I've always heard of it but never tried to learn how to play. Most card games are to complex for me. (simply brain) Gin Rummy and solitaire are about all I can handle. -_-

Used to play spades in the military so I picked up pinochle pretty fast. I could play cards all night!

Gin is very fun. I just don't play against my grandma. She's very good at it. :(

I love spades...Hearts too. Don't get to play as often as I like; it's hard to find three other people that like to play.

As far as chips--if you have a Costco membership in the NW, they have a nice five coloured set, around 500 clay chips, for $60. I'd get it, but the other guys at the dorm have chips, so why?

If it has the case too, that's a really nice deal. Even without the case it's a good deal.
