The Ice Breaker

The show starts with an equal distribution of 13 cards. The remaining cards are placed on the shooting
blanket and are known as the stock pile. Players begin the game and take turns in an anticlockwise or
clockwise direction.

The Purpose Tour

Players should be most concerned about forming valid sequences and thats the key for you to survive
and even win the game. The one who does it in minimum time is declared as the winner. The valid and
invalid runs depend on the type of game you are in. Heres a representation for valid and invalid

Valid Sequence 5, 6, 7

Invalid Sequence 2, 9, 5
The Set

Face Card Set K, K, K

Regular Set 2, 2, 2

The game of Rummy primarily consists of calculating and remembering the cards which are
discarded by all players at the table. Players can only use the same card ONCE

Lets take the example of King of Hearts and see, where it can rule. Suppose it finds a place with the
other two face card Kings and the set becomes K, K, K. It could also team up with the King of clubs
and the joker card.

Face Card Correct House K , K , K

Incorrect House 2 , Q , K

Regular Card Correct House 5 , 5 , 5

Incorrect House 5 , 4 , 7

How The Game Rolls

It isnt a complicated game and stays on 2-Ds of drawing and discarding.

Drawing It is the simplest and most regular act often practiced by a player. To draw
means to extract the top card from a pile of cards. The goal remains to form
valid sequences or sets according to the current running game.
Discarding You have to make valid sequences and sets with the same number of cards in
hand, i.e. 13. You need to maintain the equilibrium all the time. And to do this
you need to discard a card that is of little or no use to you to the discard pile.
When you discard a card, it is shown facing up on the top of the discard pile. It
is visible to all players at the table and may be drawn by the player next in turn

When To Call it a Day

You know whats the difference between Rummy and Nintendo? Short answer, Rummy cant be paused.
Suppose Jack after fighting a hard battle comes up with at least two sequences (one of which is pure
with no wild cards) only then may he can win. Heres an example:

First Sequence Second Sequence Third Sequence Fourth Sequence

From 10, J, Q A, 2, 3 J, Q, K, A 10, J, Q

What if the Stock Pile Runs Out

We shuffle the discard pile and turn it over to start a new stock Pile.

Things to Remember

The Magic of Ace Cards is a critical expression in building the rummy house. All Aces , , ,
are considered as a 10 pointer cards and can be paired with either A, 2, 3 or Q, K, A.
The versatility of As is limited and the same wont help you out on K, A, 2.
