Pinochle is a trick-taking card game typically for two to five
players and played with a 48 card deck. Derived from the card
game bezique, players score points by trick-taking and also by
forming combinations of cards into meld. It is thus considered
part of a "trick-and-meld" category. Each hand is played in
three phases: bidding, melds, and tricks.
