A 13-Card rummy, also known as Traditional or Indian rummy is one of the most popular card games in India people of every age love to play. Rummy in real money is simply a draw & discard game that is played between 2 to 6 players using one or two standard decks of cards plus jokers.
One deck is closed ie. The players aren’t allowed to see the cards while another deck is open, created with the discarded cards by co-players, also known as the discarded pile deck. Each player is assigned 13 cards which they are required to form in valid sets or sequences to win the game.
A sequence in a real money rummy game is a group of three or more consecutive cards belonging to the same suit. There are two types of sequences:
A pure sequence is formed by grouping three or more consecutive cards belonging to the same suit but without using a Joker card.
Note – A pure sequence can also contain a Joker card but only in its original suit & value ie. Wild Joker Cards. For example 2♥-3♥-4♥ (WJ). Here, 4♥ is used as a Wild Joker card to complete the sequence.
An impure sequence is formed by grouping three or more consecutive cards belonging to the same suit but using one or more joker cards as a replacement.
A set is a group of three or more cards of the same value but from different suits.
Set without Joker Card
2♥️ 2♠️ 2♣️ 2♦️ – A pure set by forming 2s of the different suit
7♥7♣7♦ – All three 7s are from different suits
Set With Joker Cards
4♦️ 4♣️ 4♠️ PJ – A pure set, using 4s of different suits using a Printed Joker to replace 4♥️.
6♠-6♣-K♥ (WJ) – A pure set, using K♥ as a Wild Joker Card as a replacement for 6 of any other suit ie. Diamond.
Joker cards have a vital role in winning a card game. Wise use of jokers can help you declare the game before your opponent does. It has two types:
