Rummy is a group of matching card games notable for similar gameplay based on the matching cards of the same rank or sequence and same suit. The basic goal in any form of rummy is to build melds which consists of sets, three or four of a kind of the same rank, or runs, three or more cards in sequence, of the same suit. The original form of rummy is called Sai rummy or Basic rummy. The Mexican game of Conquian is considered by David Parlett to be ancestral to all rummy games, which itself is derived from a Chinese game called Khanhoo and, going even further back, Mahjong.
Rummy is one of the most popular forms of rummy. Rummy is generally played by two players each receiving ten cards. Rummy, which evolved from 18th-century Whiskey Poker , was created with the intention of being faster than standard rummy. The objective in Gin Rummy is to score more points than your opponent. The basic Gin Rummy strategy is to improve one's hand by forming melds and eliminating deadwood. In standard Gin Rummy, a player may not knock unless he has 10 or fewer points of deadwood. He must knock, a Gin Rummy term, if he has 0 points of deadwood. Knocking with 0 points of deadwood is known as going Gin or having a Gin, while knocking with deadwood points is known as going down in Gin Rummy. free gin rummy..
