How To Play Rummy
What Are Rummy Rules?
The rules of a rummy game are simple: you need to arrange all the cards in your hand to form at least two sequences, out of which one has to be a pure sequence.
The remaining cards should be arranged in valid sequences and/or sets. Follow the step-by-step instructions to learn how to play the Rummy game
How to Play the Rummy Card Game? What Are Basic Rummy Concepts?
Note: All the cards in a set have to be of different suits. If two or more cards of the same suit are used, it will be considered an invalid set.
A set cannot have more than four cards. So, if you add a Joker to a set of four cards, it will be considered an invalid set.
How to Use Jokers in Rummy?
Two types of Jokers are used in rummy. They play special roles and can help you win a rummy game:
Printed Joker (PJ): Printed Jokers play the same role in rummy games as wild Jokers. If you get printed Jokers, you can use them to replace any other cards to form sets and sequences.
See the groups below and learn how to play the rummy card game with printed Jokers.
The PJ has replaced 5? to form a sequence of 3?, 4?, 5?, 6?. It is a valid sequence.
The PJ has replaced 2? to form a set of 2?, 2?, 2?, 2?. It is a valid set.
Note: If the printed Joker gets randomly selected as the wild Joker, then the aces (A’s) of all the suits become wild Jokers.
What are the Types of Sequences?
Now you know that a sequence is a group of three or more consecutive cards of the same suit. You should also know that there are two types of sequences used in 13-card rummy games.
Learn here how to play cards rummy with pure and impure sequences:
Pure Sequence: A pure sequence is a group of three or more consecutive cards of the same suit formed without a Joker replacing any card.
Note: A wild Joker can be used to form a pure sequence if it is used in its original value and as a card of its original suit, not as a Joker.
Here, even if Q? is the wild Joker, the sequence formed is a pure sequence, as K?, Q? and J? are of the same suit, ?, and Q? has been used in its original value.
Rummy is one of the most popular card games of picks and discards. Picking and discarding cards properly is one of the main rules of rummy:
(i) First pick a card from either the Closed deck or the Open deck. (ii) Then discard one of your cards to the Open deck.
How to Win in Rummy
When you have arranged all the cards in your hand in proper sequences and/or sets, including one pure sequence, you need to declare
the game by discarding one of your cards to the Finish Slot. After you have declared the game,
you need to arrange your cards in proper sequences and/or sets to show them to your opponents and wait for them to show their hands.
This is a valid declaration as it meets the objective of the game.

- It has a minimum of two sequences: A?, 2?, 3?, 4? (pure sequence) and 5?, 6?, PJ (sequence).
