This is the most popular pinochle app in the Mac App Store.

Pinochle is a card game played with a deck of 9s, 10s, jacks, queens, kings and aces. The game consists of a repeating sequence of bidding (for the right to name the trump suit and to pass cards), melding, and trick-taking. Players score points by melding various card combinations and by taking tricks.

In this version, choose either single-deck (48 cards) or double-deck (80 cards), and adjust the rules to play the game as you're familiar with it.

To get a free preview of this app, download Pinochle Lite, also available in the Mac App Store.

Appearance update, more options, logic improvements.

Version 3.1.0
Review by bat9581

Great Game, Unfortunate Partner - I really love the game. It’s got tons of options to gaurantee the player can play how they play at home, but just recently we had 39 points to go and the other team had 8. It was going to be dropped on my opponents but my partner bid. We ended up losing the game when they would’ve been put in the hole (they had 1 meld). I really wish you can fix that part of their programming.

Version 2.4.7
Review by biggarybeast

DO NOT BUY - Froze up and cannot restart. It is nothing like playing live. When a player has only winning trump left it goes into Auto mode and plays all cards for everyone. It does speed up game but lame. You do not get chance to play against other live players that I can can find so you always play computer.

Newest version update - First of all, I don’t understand all of the negative comments for the previous versions. My father taught me Pinochle when I was 10 years old, (60 years ago) and, yes, there are a few quirks in this game, but overall a good game. Please tell me if there is a better version? The new version has added many features, and I will have to play more to see how much the “logic” has improved, but first impressions are very good. I like the new “concede” options - speeds up hands. And scoring options have expanded greatly. Thanks
