Rummy is a card game for two to four players and belongs to a card game family with Jolly, Canasta, Chinchón and Gin Rummy. It is played with two 52-card decks with six jokers. At the start of the game each player receives 13 cards. The remaining cards form the deck.
The aim of the game is to lay your cards quicker than your opponent(s). The values of the cards still held by your opponent(s) at the end of a round are converted into negative points. If a player exceeds the 50 or 100 point limit, he/she loses. If there are 3 or more players, this player is knocked out, and the game continues until one player remains.
To lay the cards the players must form combinations. The combinations can be either groups (three or four cards of the same value, but different suits) or sequences (at least three like-suit, consecutive cards).
