Hello from Snowy Vermont
I only happened upon powerpinochle a few minutes ago.  Cribbage is really the big game around Northern Vermont, Southern Quebec, and Montreal.  There are lots of friendly weekly games and low-key & fun monthly tournaments.  I'm organizing one of my own in April. (A lot of bridge and some poker, too.)  Anyway, I only finally learned cribbage for good about 2-3 years ago (several people had tried to teach me over many years), and I caught on.  In January, I went to Winfield, Kansas, southeast of Wichita, to visit friends for a week.  I tried to find local crib games, and I couldn't. But I saw pinochle advertised in Arkansas City, so I called & received 3 hours of double-deck instruction with a friend  :-)  There was a large enthusiastic group.  The lady teaching me said she had moved there from Western Kansas, where they played another type of pinochle, and she had to learn double-deck in order to play in "Ark City," because that's the way it is  :-)   So I came back to Vermont looking for pinochle. I found a double-deck app for my phone.  I found a group 90 mins. away (near Montpelier) that plays single deck, and that got me a little more confused. Then, last week I visited family in the Springfield, Mass. area & found a group of double-deckers who let me play as I learned for a few hours.  They were in South Hadley & were very friendly & helpful.  So we have pinochle players out here, but so far, they're not so easy to find !!!  End of the story is that I'm a beginner with some starting knowledge  :-)   -John
