Binokel is a card game for two to eight players that originated in Switzerland as Binocle, but spread to the German state of Württemberg where it is typically played with a Württemberg pattern pack. It is still popular in Württemberg, where it is usually played in groups of three or four as a family game rather than in the pubs. In three-hand games, each player competes for himself, while in four-hand games, known as Cross Binokel (Kreuzbinokel), two teams are formed with partners sitting opposite one another. The game was introduced to America by German immigrants in the first half of the 20th century, where it developed into the similar game of Pinochle. Binocle was still played in Switzerland in 1994. In south Germany, the game is sometimes called by its Swabian name, Benoggl.

dbo:abstract
  • Binokel (auch Binocle, in den USA Pinochle, Schwäbisch: Benogl) ist ein regionales Kartenspiel aus dem württembergischen Raum und wird daher meist mit württembergischem Blatt gespielt. Es kann mit 2 bis 8 Spielern gespielt werden. Meistens wird es zu dritt oder viert gespielt. Beim Dreierspiel spielen alle gegeneinander, während beim Spiel zu viert zwei Parteien gebildet werden können, wobei die jeweils gegenübersitzenden Spieler zusammenspielen (Kreuzbinokel). Auch beim Spiel zu sechst werden Zweierparteien gebildet, es gibt also drei Parteien. Binokel stammt aus der Familie der Stichspiele. Im Unterschied zu anderen Stichspielen geben spezielle Kartenkombinationen (Familie, 4 gleiche etc.) Zusatzpunkte. Nach dem Austeilen wird um den Dabb (Stapel unausgeteilter Karten, vgl. Skat) gereizt. Reizwerte sind dabei die Augen der erwarteten Stiche und Meldbilder. Die Partei, die am höchsten gereizt hat, muss dann auch das Spiel gewinnen, also mehr Punkte durch Stiche und gemeldete Figuren erhalten, als sie gereizt hat. (de)

In south Germany, the game is sometimes called by its Swabian name, Benoggl. Binokel belongs to the family of melding and trick-taking games. Unlike others in the family, special card combinations (family, four of a kind, etc.) score additional points. After the deal in the three- or four-player game, there is an auction to bid for the dabb (stack of undealt cards c.f. Skat) or tapp. Players bid depending on the card points they expect to score from taking tricks and making melds. The team with the highest bid has to win the game, i.e. score more points in tricks and melds than they bid. Although some of the rules vary from place to place, the basics are standard. (en)
