Rummy is one of many popular board games that are available and popular among many different age groups. The rules may differ from one game to the next, but the theme remains the same. Rummy has been known as the “world’s oldest word” and is the oldest sport known to man. It is a family of games including: royal rumble, Scrabble, dominoes and rumble sticks.
Rummy can be played with only three to four players in a game or can be played with a larger number of players. In a game with more than four players, each player would take turns starting with the player farthest to the left. Every other player would add his or her hand consisting of an Ace, Queen, King, Jack and a Deuce. The player that ends up with the last remaining hand would then pass his turn and the new player would take his or her turn. Once all players have ended their turns, another round of betting will begin.
There are two types of rummy games: the standard rummy and the multi-player rummy. In the standard game, there is an allotted amount of chips that are kept by the “royals” for use for buying cards for their hand. Players receive points every time they match cards that are in the deck by using the same suits with those in the deck. Players can accumulate more points by winning a match or adding cards to their hand, but they lose points if they are penalized for losing a card or if their card is discarded from the deck.
The multi-player version of rummy pits two players against each other in a bid to eliminate one other player before the game concludes. For instance, a player may be eliminated when another player reveals a hand containing eight cards and wishes to remove a card. Then the elimination occurs when all remaining cards have been revealed and there is only one left to play. In this instance, the loser is the person that had to reveal their card first. If there is still a game after ten cards have been dealt then the tenth card is turned over to the person that just came out with it.
In addition to standard sets, there are also “lier” versions of this card game. “Romeo and Juliet” have a very fast pace and involve a lot of maneuvering and making calls while you try to eliminate your opponents. This is an exciting card game played with a group of people. However, most people do not play this type of game because it is often played with sets comprised of only two players. “Romeo and Juliet” sets are designed to have a slower pace.
The way that “Rummy” sets are played differs from the way that most regular card games are played. In regular versions of “Rummy”, there is only one deck to deal with. In “Rummy” sets, you can deal with four players instead. The problem with four players is that more cards are usually dealt out to the players in this game. The number of cards dealt to the players in “Rummy” sets is usually larger than the number dealt in regular sets.
