13-Card Rummy is a popular rummy card game in India. It is a type of draw & discard game which is played between 2 to 6 players with two decks of cards including a total of two jokers. It is a common rummy variant in India where to win the game, a player must make a valid declaration. One of the two decks is closed while the other deck is an open deck created with the discarded number cards by the players.
The rummy rules are quite simple & easy to master for everyone to enjoy the card game. Each player is assigned with 13 cards which they must form in valid sequences or sets to win the game. A player who makes the declaration first wins the game.
A sequence in a real cash rummy is a group of three or more consecutive cards of the same suit. It has two types:
A pure sequence can be created by grouping three or more consecutive cards of the same suit without using a joker card.
Note - A pure sequence can also be formed using a Joker card but it should be in its original suit & value ie. Wild Joker cards. For example: 4♥-5♥-6♥ (WJ). Here 6♥ is used as a Wild Joker to complete the joker.
An impure sequence is a group of three or more consecutive cards belonging to the same suit but has a joker card as a replacement.
A set is a group of three or more cards having the same value but from different suites.
