Pinochle Melds and Melding
Once all the cards are passed back and forth across the table, all four players will then lay down meld. Although this may be one of the most confusing parts of the game, it is a detail that you must learn nonetheless. When it comes down to it, laying down meld is one of the most important details of pinochle.
You need to know what a meld is before you can fully understand what it means within the context of pinochle. Generally speaking, meld is a combination of cards face up on the table. Each combination that is made is called a piece of meld. And each one of these is worth a differing number of points. If you are worried about keeping up with this part of the game, do not worry. The more that you play pinochle, the better you will become at laying down meld as well as understanding how it affects you.
Each player will only place cards face up that show the overall value of their meld. There are three types of meld that you will want to become familiar with.
Pinochle Meld Type One
Pinochle Meld Type Two
Pinochle Meld Type Three
Once every player has laid their meld, points are
recorded for each. From here, things begin to heat
up. During the trick taking phase of the game there
are only 250 available points. If the amount that
was bid is more than 250 points above the melded
amount by the team who had the chance to declare,
they cannot make their bid.
