How To Play Rummy

You receive a specific number of cards as per the variant (13 cards or 21 cards).

Cards are ranked from low to high – Ace, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, Jack, Queen, and King.

You need to arrange the dealt cards in valid sets and sequences by picking and discarding cards from two piles.

One pile is closed (un-dealt) and one is open (made of discarded cards).

On your turn to act, you have to pick the top card from the open or closed pile and discard one card.

A sequence is a group of 3-4 consecutive cards of the same suit

A set is a group of 3-4 cards of the same rank but different suits.

Sequences and sets can be pure (without Joker card) or impure (with Joker card). In an impure sequence/set, a Joker card can be used as a replacement of a missing card.

To declare, you need to discard one unneeded card after arranging all your cards.

If the declaration is right, you become the winner.
