How to play rummy games online

Here, we have listed down some general principles with respect to Rummy game online.

You will have to focus on creating pure sequence, impure sequence and finally sets.

  • The game can be played between two players or there can be 2-6 players in one single game of rummy online.
  • The distribution of the cards will be more depended on the number of players taking part in the game.
  • The cards will be evenly distributed between / among the players.
  • The remaining deck will be kept in the middle.
  • The top card will be flipped up (which will set the discard pile).
  • Players need to play all of the cards into melds (A meld is a set of 3-4 cards which will be of the same face value).
  • The players will have to retrieve the cards from the deck / discard pile.
  • The players will have to try at forming the meld with the available cards and try to discard unimportant cards.
  • Each player will have the turn to discard one card.
  • At the time of discarding the card, the players can also have the option to lay down any possible meld on the table.
  • The other players can have the option to add to the meld (previously laid down by the player).
  • The game will be continued until the players have discarded their cards.
  • The winner will be given points on the basis of the face value of the cards of the other players.
  • If the player has not laid down the card on the table but is able to lay off in a meld all together then it is known as GOING RUMMY.

When a player goes rummy, he is awarded double the points in the other players’ hands.
