Pinocchio is a popular card game among Blackjack players. It is also known by other names, such as Monopoly, Pinochle, and Spoons.
This game is a variation of the traditional Italian game of Pinocchio, which is a game of chance.
The object of the game is to score as many points as possible by making high-scoring hands. In Pinocchio, each player starts with a set number of wooden “pins” (spoons).
The aim of the game is to score points by making high-scoring hands using these pins.
The player with the most pins at the end of the game wins. To make a hand, a player must place one or more pins on an open card. The value of each pin depends on the rank of the card it is placed on:
Ace (1), Two (2), Three (3), Four (4), Five (5), Six (6), Seven (7), Eight (8), Nine (9).
If two or more pins are placed on the same card, they are counted as one pin. For example, if a player has two 3s and one 2 on an open card, they would make a hand worth six points.
