About he Rummy Card Game
Rummy is a traditional card game believed to originate from Mexico in the 1890’s. This particular online game is set up for 2-4 players, whereof one of the players is human (you) and the other player(s) are controlled by the computer program.
How to play and win a Rummy game
The Rummy card game is played by building series of cards (called “melds”). The melds are either three or four of a kind of the same rank (called “sets”) or three or more sequential cards of the same suit (called “runs”). You win by ridding yourself of all your your cards (“go out”) by laying down melds on the table, or by laying off/discarding cards as described below.
The participants play in turns. When it’s your turn, draw the top card from the stock or the discard pile. If you choose to draw from the discard pile, you may draw multiple cards.
If you can put together three cards of the same suit in a sequence or run, meld them by laying these cards face up on the table. If at least three cards of the same rank are held, you can meld them as a set or group. Melding is optional and you can make as many as possible in one turn.
You can also “lay off” some cards on an existing meld if you can add to a sequence or a set that is already on the table, regardless of who initially melded it.
Finally in your turn, after making any melds or lay offs, you must discard a single card to the discard pile, face up. You can not discard back a card you picked from the discard pile earlier.
If the stock runs out of playing cards, you can choose to draw from the discard pile or to turn it over to form a new stock. After forming the new stock, the top card must be drawn to start a new discard pile. You can call rummy if a point is discarded into the discard pile, but not if the card becomes a point while it is in the discard pile.
You may “go out” by discarding the last remaining card you have, whether as part of a meld or a lay-off or a discard.
If you go out first, you win and score as many points as the other player have in cards. Court cards count 10 points each, Jokers 15 points each, and number cards score their value. Aces count as 1 point unless they are allowed to be high (11 points).
