  • How to Play
    • Indian Rummy is a popular 13 card game that is one of a larger number of Draw and Discard games. The basic objective of these games is to improve one's Hand, that is, whatever cards one has, by drawing and discarding cards and forming sets. Certain rules have to be followed while making these sets.

      In all Rummy games, each player is dealt a hand of cards. Additionally, there are 2 stacks from which each player can select cards, thereby drawing a card. Once a player draws a card, he has to get rid of one card (discarding). A player can draw from either the closed un-dealt cards or the open discarded pile.

      For a particular Hand, each player is provided with 13 cards. The objective is to arrange these cards into appropriate groups of cards. These groups can be either Life or Set. A minimum of 2 Lives are required to have a valid arrangement.
