What is a Rummy Game?
Rummy is a popular card game, typically played by 2 to 6 players. Primary aim is to form sets or sequences of cards. The game of rummy demands strategic gameplay and skillful card arrangement, and the objective is to eliminate all cards in hand by creating valid combinations. For this reason it is categorized as a game of skill.
Commonly played in India is a 13 card rummy game involving the dealing of 13 cards to each player. In a 2 player game, a standard deck of 52 cards is used whereas in a 6 player game, two decks of 52 cards are combined. A player is required to complete sets and melds, and once accomplished, a valid declaration must be made to emerge as the winner.
Set, Sequences and Joker Card Rules in Rummy?
Sets and Sequences form the basic structure of the game.
In layman terms, Sets are a group of cards of different suits. For example, 7♥ 7♦ 7♠ or A♥ A♦ A♠ A♣.
On the other hand, Sequences are made by arranging cards of the same suit in a sequential manner. For example, 5♠ 6♠ 7♠ or J♥ Q♥ K♥.
A Joker Card can be used to form sets and sequences in rummy. A joker can be either a Printed Joker or a random predetermined card from the deck known as a Wild Joker. For example, 4♠ Printed Joker 6♠ or Q♥ Wild Joker Q♠.
It is necessary to form at least one pure sequence (a sequence without any Joker) and one impure sequence (a sequence that may include a Joker) in order to declare and win the game.
