1 Min Read


Playing the card game Rummy can be both exciting and strategic. Here’s a quick guide on how to play:

  • Objective: The goal is to form valid sets or sequences to declare and win.
  • Setup: A standard deck of 52 cards is used. Each player is dealt 10 cards.
  • Gameplay:
    • Players take turns drawing a card from either the stockpile or discard pile.
    • After drawing, a player discards one card to the discard pile.
    • The aim is to form sets (three or four cards of the same rank) and sequences (three or more consecutive cards of the same suit).
  • Declaring: When a player forms valid sets/sequences with all their cards, they declare by placing their cards face-up.
  • Scoring: Points are calculated based on unformed cards left in other players’ hands after declaration. Lower score wins.

Familiarize yourself with these basics and enjoy playing Rummy!
