Rummy is a game of Mexican origin and still one of the best-known card games in the United States, though in many regions it has been replaced by Gin Rummy and Oklahoma Gin. Rummy works better than Gin Rummy when there are more than two players. A pleasing feature of the game is that it is so simple to play and has many variations.
How to Play:
Dealer gives one card at a time face down, beginning with the player on the left. When two people play, each person gets 10 cards. Beginning with the player to the left of the dealer, players either draw the top card of the stack or takes the top card of the throw- away pile and adds it to his hand. The player may also lay down on the table, face up, any meld (matched set). If the player does not wish to lay down a meld, he gets rid of one card, face up, onto the discard pile. If the player has drawn from the discard pile, he may not discard the same card on that turn. When a player gets rid of all the cards, that player wins the game.
