types of rummy

Every Indian and an avid card player know that each game of cards has several different variations with which the same game can be played. Some of the rules depend on the dealer (person who deals the cards in that turn/ game) or some have been passed on from generations and that is the way the family or tradition calls for the game to be played. For example – even poker or the famous Indian game teen patti can be played with different rules to make it more exciting and keep the fun going without seeming monotonous. 

Similarly, one of the most famous card games played across the globe is Indian Rummy. There are multiple versions of this game as well, but the attractiveness of this one cannot be paralleled by any other. 

What is Indian Rummy

The game is played between 2 and 6 players to make valid sequences out of the 13 cards that are dealt initially. The sequences can be as follows 

  • Pure sequence – 3 or 4 cards of the same suit
  • Impure sequences – a set of 3 or 4 cards but with a joker
  • Triplets – 3 cards with the same face value but of a dissimilar suit.  

A very popular version of Rummy is Points Rummy. This game is played with a pre-decided value for money. This version seems exciting as there are cash prizes at the end of the game for the player who has the best skills and makes the most valid sequences.

The game is also played with 2-6 players and required 2 decks of cards. The points will have a set rupee value and each player would have to contribute a minimum value to begin playing. The same rules in terms of sequences and sets are maintained in this version of the game as well. The most valid declarations or the least number of points would decide the winner in the game.
