12 Step Rummy Card Game
There are a few different variations of continental rummy Rules for the card game 5000 Rummy, with its many names and variants, in which each player is dealt a number of cards determined by the first card they receive.
Some versions have additional wild cards I have collected over 2 The variants affect every part of the game: the number of cards used, the deal, the card values, the wild cards, the melds that are allowed, the rules of play and the scoring.
For purposes of scoring, the cards remaining in the players hand have the following values: Card Point Value 2 2 3 3 4 4 5 5 6 6 7 7 8 8 9 9 10 10 J 10 Q 10 K 10 A 15 Joker 25 The player with the fewest points at the end of the seven deals wins the game.
The wild card remains in place Calling "rummy"Any card can be discarded However, if a card is discarded which can be used to extend a set or run on the table, any player who has already melded can call "rummy", take the discard and meld it, announcing the set or run it is added to, and discard a card (if possible).
For a game with 2 to 5 players use 2 standard decks plus jokers (108 cardstotal). Add another deck and its jokers for each 2 additional players. Deal 13cards to each player, starting at the dealer's left.
When a player goes out, by disposing of all their cards, the other players score penaltypoints for all the cards remaining in their hands. The object of the game is to be the player with the lowest score at the end of the series of seven rounds.
There are several versions of Shanghai Rummy. There is also a rummy game known to some people as Shanghai, which is not a contract game, but a type of Carousel or Manipulation rummy - this will be found on the Carousel page.
Rummy is a classic cardgame where the objective is to be the first to get rid of all your cards, by creating melds, which can either be sets, three or four cards of the same rank, e.g. H8 S8 D8, or runs, which are three or more cards of the same suit in a sequence, e.g. H1 H2 H3. Aces are low, and sequences can not wrap around. There are many, many variations of Rummy that exist, this particular implementation is Basic Rummy, or Traditional Rummy.
The game can have 2,3 or 4 players. If there are only two players they each get 10 cards, if there are three or four player then each player gets 7 cards. After the cards are dealt the deck is put facedown on the table, and one card face up next to it, to start the discard pile. The player to the left of the dealer starts the hand, and gameplay goes as follows:
The game continues like this until one player has finished all the cards from their hand. A player is not required to end the game by discarding a card onto the discard pile, if he can lay down all his cards in melds, or lay them off on existing melds the may do so, and will win the game.
The scoring in Rummy is winner-takes-all. When a player has won a round, the cards his opponents still have in their hands are counted and the winner gets points based on them. Face cards are worth 10 points each, aces are 1 point, and other cards are worth their rank, e.g. an 8 is worth 8 points. The points for all the losers are added together and given to the winner. (In some variations each player gets his points as penalty points, but not in this version). The score needed to win the entire game varies based on how many players there are. For 2 players the score is 100 points, for 3 players it's 150 points and for four players the score is 200. When a player reaches the target score he has won the entire game. Since scoring is based on cards left in hand it makes sense to try to meld and lay off as early as possible.
If a player has not melded or laid off any cards during the game, but can get rid of all his cards in one turn earns a bonus, his points are doubled! This is called Going Rummy, and is a risky move, since you have a lot of cards for a long time, but can really pay off if you manage to do it successfully!
There are two cases where the game can end in a stalemate. One, as mentioned above, is when the stock has been depleted twice. The other is when the game detects that none of the players will be able to finish their hands. This can for example happen when all players have only one card left, and there are no possible lay offs on the melds on the table. When there's a stalemate all players get 0 points, and the game is considered a loss for all of them in the statistics. The way people handle this in real life varies greatly, but I've chosen this simple method here to avoid complications around two or more players having the same number of points etc.
This online version of the classic card game Rummy was made by me. My name is Einar Egilsson and over there on the left is my current Facebook profile picture. A few months ago I made Gin Rummy. After that the most requested game has been standard Rummy, so now I've made that! Enjoy :)
Contract rummy is a Rummy card game, based on gin rummy played by 3 to 8 players. It appeared in the United States during the Second World War. The game is also known as Combination rummy, Deuces Wild Rummy and Joker rummy, and a proprietary version of the game called Phase 10 was published in 1982.
Contract rummy is played with multiple decks of 54 standard playing cards, including the Jokers. Aces are high and low (above a King), and Jokers are wild cards. The number of decks varies from 2 to 4 and is based on the number of players (see chart). Each game is based on 7 rounds of hands, and the rules for each hand are unique. One player begins as dealer for the first hand, and then the player to the dealer's left becomes dealer for the next hand, and so on. Each player is dealt ten cards for the first four rounds and then 12 for the last three. The rest of the deck is then placed face down in the middle of the players; this is referred to as the stock. One card is taken from the top of the stock and placed face up next to it. This card is called the upcard and becomes the beginning of the discard pile, else known as "dead", or no longer in the game.
Chinchón is a matching card game played in Spain, Uruguay, Argentina, Cape Verde and other places. It is a close variant of gin rummy, with which it shares the same objective: making sets, groups or runs, of matching cards.
The game of Chinchón is played with a Spanish 40 or 48-card pack. The rules of the game are very similar to those of Gin Rummy, almost identical to Rumino. Seven cards are dealt to each player, and the remaining cards of the pack are laid on the table face down to form the stock. The top card of this pile is then turned face up and laid beside the stock to start the discard pile. The players look at and sort their cards, and then play by turns. Each turn consists of a draw and a discard:
A player who has enough combinations may decide to meld hand cards, laying them off onto the table, whereupon the round ends. That can be done when the player thinks that the value of their unmatched cards, called "deadwood" in Rummy, is less than that of the other players. Each of the players scores penalty points equivalent to the sum of the face value of the unmatched cards left in the hand. If a player has no unmatched cards, that is 'Gin', they earn a bonus of -10 points. A player automatically wins the game if they manage to make a run of 7 cards, called chinchón. If the game includes Jokers as wild cards, a run with a Joker doesn't count as a true chinchón and doesn't win the game, but still allows the -10 points bonus.
In Uruguay, Conga ends when only one player remaining has less than 100 points, as all other players with more than 100 can "reenganche" with the player that has the highest score under 100. Also, players can only meld their cards if they have 5 or less points in their hand, unless their score is 96 or more, as melding requires staying in the game at 100 or less. Also, when the game starts, all but the one to the right of the dealer receive 7 cards, the one to the right is the "Mano" (The hand) and that player receives an eighth card, to which they place the least convenient card in their hand, next to the face-down deck, thus starting the game with a single card already for selection, which is commonly a 12.
Old Maid is a simple, fun card game that's great for beginners. Players try to avoid being stuck with the Old Maid, or the unpaired card in the deck. To play, gather at least one friend, prepare your deck, and learn the rules. Once you've gotten the basics down, you can tweak the rules to keep things exciting!
Krazy Bee Rummy is a multi-player card game that is a version of the card game Rummy. The game includes cards numbered 1-13 and "Wild Bee" cards. One player deals 12 cards to each player and players take turns playing Rummy. Each round has a required "step" that the individual needs to complete for that round (ex. Run of 7 or 2 Books of 3). Players cannot advance to the next "step" until they have successfully completed the previous "step." In Krazy Bee Rummy, the "Wild Bee" cards act as "wild" or "free" cards, which players can use as part of their hand or to play on other players' hands. The "Wild Bee" card can be any numbered card the player wants. As in Rummy, the objective is to have the least number of points in your hand at the end of each round. The cards numbered 1-9 are worth 5 points each. cards numbered 10-13 are worth 10 points each, and "Wild Bee" cards are worth 15 points each. In Krazy Bee Rummy, the player to complete all steps with the lowest score wins.
Card tricks and games have been a passionate pastime for hundreds of years. Whether spending time with friends and family in your living room or at a poker table in Las Vegas, having a few card tricks up your sleeve is always good for impressive entertainment during a game of cards. If you are interested in picking up some magic and card tricks, knowing how to fan your cards is essential to pulling off your trick in style. Fanning cards is the art of holding all the cards out fan-style in one hand so all cards can be seen at once. This is typically done so another participant may select one or more of the cards for a trick or game. 350c69d7ab
