Variations of Rummy
Rummy is also written as Rammy in some parts of the country, and pronounced as /rm/. There are several variations of the Rammy game, among which the 13 card variation is the most popular among Indians.
The main objective of the Indian Rummy game is to create a pure sequence of cards (example: JQK) of the same suit or set (example: AAA) of the same value. When a player forms the required Runs and Sets using the cards in hand, he can declare a game.
Indian Rummy is mostly played between 4 players with 13 cards each, and 2 decks of cards. In Indian Rummy, a player must have a pure sequence (First Life), pure or impure sequence (Second Life) as a set of four cards to show or declare a game.
If a player is unable to make a pure sequence (First Life), then the player will get 80 points in total.
If a player is able to make a pure sequence (First Life), then the rest of the invalid sets of cards will be counted. You can get more information about the game in the help section of the game. For more information about how to play the game, refer to the Help section inside the game.
