3 Things You Need to Know Before You Start Playing Rummy

The objective of rummy card game online is to arrange the 13 cards into invalid sets and sequences. It is a card game played with two decks of cards including a total of two Jokers. To win a rummy game, a player must make a valid declaration by picking and discarding cards from the two given piles.


You can play a rummy card game online with two or more players. But, before start playing, you need to learn how to play rummy and including the basic rules, scoring and how to win.


1. How To Play Rummy Card Game Online?


A rummy card game online can be played between 2-6 players with two decks of cards. The players have to draw and discard cards to form valid sets and sequence of the 13 cards at hand. To begin with, each player is dealt 13 cards; one random card is picked as the Wild Card or the Joker Card of the game. This card can then be used to form impure sequences and sets of cards. Once all the cards are arranged in valid sequences with 1 pure sequence and groups, one can make a declaration and win the game.


2. How to Form Sequences?


In a rummy card game online, a sequence is a group of three or more consecutive cards of the same suit. There are two types of sequences that are formed; a pure and an impure sequence. To win the game, you need at least one pure sequence in your hand


  • Pure Sequence


A pure sequence is a group of 3 or more cards of the same suit, placed in consecutive order. In order to form a pure sequence, a player cannot use any joker or wild card.


  • Impure Sequence: 

An impure sequence is a group of 3 or more cards of the same suit with one or more joker or wild card used.


3. Quick Tips To Win The Rummy Card Game

  • Without a pure sequence a player cannot make a declaration; try to form a pure sequence at the very beginning of the game.
  • To reduce the point load, discard the high cards like Ace, Jack, Queen and King and replace these cards with a Joker or Wild Cards.
  • Avoid picking from the discard pile as much as possible; it gives away the hand you are trying to form.
  • Look out for smart cards like a 5, 6, 7, 8 or a 9 of the same suit.
  • If you are replacing the high cards with a joker or a wild card, remember, you cannot form a pure sequence.
  • Check and recheck your cards, only then press the button to make a declaration. An invalid declaration can turn a winning game to a complete and total loss.
