How to Play Rummy Online?

Rummy is a strategy card game where the objective is to make the best possible combinations of the hand dealt to the player. This is done by forming rummy sets and sequences before making a declaration. In rummy, the value of all face cards is worth 10 points, while the numbered cards are worth points corresponding to their face value.

The most popular rummy variation in India is the 13 card rummy, also known as ‘Indian Rummy’. It is played between 2 to 6 players, and 13 cards are dealt to each player to start the game. In Indian Rummy, the player needs a minimum of two rummy sequences to win the game, where one sequence mandatorily needs to be a pure sequence. The second rummy sequence can either be a pure or an impure sequence.

Understanding Rummy Sets and Sequences

Rummy Sequence 1: Pure Sequence

Rummy Sequence 2: Impure Sequence

What are Rummy Sets?

In addition to sequences, the player can also form sets with his given hand. A set is basically a group of three or four cards with the same rank but of different suits. Players can make use of the joker to form their sets.

e.g. 777

Types of Jokers

To win a game of rummy, Joker is a very important card to have. Except in the mandatory pure sequence, a joker can be used to form the remaining combinations, be it a sequence or a set. There are two types of jokers in rummy. The first one is the joker that comes with the deck, also called the 'printed joker'. The second one is the wild card joker where a designated card is used as a joker for the entirety of the game. It is also known as the 'cut joker'.

e.g. 88PJ

Here, the printed joker is used to complete the set.

e.g. 56Q8

Here, Queen, which is the designated joker for the game, is used to complete the impure sequence. The Queen takes the place of 7.

Achieving the required combinations before anyone else is the key to winning a game of rummy. The same is done by a series of ‘draws’ and ‘discards’. Every turn, the player can draw a card by selecting either the topmost card from the closed deck or the card that was discarded in the previous turn. Once the card has been drawn, the player must drop one card from his hand into the discard pile. Any discard in rummy will be kept face-up.

How to Declare in Rummy?

The Rummy Declare Rules state that once a player has arranged his hand into combinations of sets and sequences, he can declare the game. At this point, the player will be allotted a time frame to meld in cards into the combinations, post which the combinations are validated before announcing the winner.
