Elaborating on Basic Rummy Gameplay Rules

In order to play a rummy game, you need two decks of cards including two jokers. It is a game of picking and discarding cards with the objective of making sequences. As per the Indian rummy rules, a player has to create at least two sequences. One of them must be a pure sequence and others can be any valid sequence. You must be getting confused between pure and valid sequences. Below is some useful information to clarify all the rummy game rules in detail.

Sequences and Sets

Sequence Formation

When three or more cards of the same suit in a consecutive manner are arranged, it is considered as a sequence. There are two types of sequences valid in the rummy game i.e.

Pure Sequence

It is a straight sequence of three or more cards that must be of the same suit and arranged in a consecutive manner. For example, a sequence of 7❤️,8❤️ and 9❤️ are considered a pure sequence.

Impure Sequence

In an impure sequence, you are free to use a random wild card or a joker to form a sequence. For instance, of you have 7♣️, 8♣️, J♠️ & 10♣️, then J♠️ will be considered as a “Wild Card”.In the same way, Joker can also be used to create an impure sequence.

Sets Formation

Same cards of different suits are arranged to form sets as per the rummy card game rules. A wild card is also valid in the formation of sets. Two or more cards of the same suit are considered invalid during set formation. For example, A♥, A♣, A♦ & A❤️ are known as sets. Also in a set of 7♠, 7♥, Q♥, 7♦ & 7♠, Q♥ is a wild card that makes a set of 5.

Most common rummy terms you should remember

Rummy Table

Each rummy table can host between 2-6 players at a time.

Joker & Wild Card

A wild card is selected randomly from the deck of cards whereas a joker is printed. Both of them are meant for creating impure sequences.

Drop

Drop is a stage when someone decides to leave the game in the middle. Points are deducted according to the withdrawal timing of a person. It goes in this way:

  • First drop = 20 points;
  • Middle drop = 40 points;
  • Last drop = 80 points (Max);

Card Sorting

It is the process of arranging cards in a random manner by shuffling in the beginning before distribution.

Cash Tournament

Invalid Declarations

a) Invalid sets wrong declaration
b) Invalid sequences wrong declaration
