If you have already mastered the basic fundamentals of rummy, then you should know that every round that is played, the player will be allotted a specific number of rummy points, which will determine the winner of the game. The players will be given a card with the numbers 1 to 9 printed on it. Lay these out on the table in front of you and start laying out your rummy stacks. When the time comes to choose a card to be laid out on the table, the players will have to first agree on which card they would like to have first, and then the cards are placed in a pile according to the order in which they were selected.
After each player has had their turn, the dealer will cut the deck of cards and deal them out to the players. The dealer may wish to shuffle the deck of cards and put a special card in front of each player. These cards will have an Ace, Queen, King and Jack on them and will depict a scene from the game called the ‘harem’, where there is only one participant. This is how the game of rummy was originated.
Once all the rounds of betting have been completed, the last person who has been called ‘the winner’ will hand over the rummy cards to the one remaining player who is called the loser. When a player wins the rummy game, he must take the joker from the player who has lost and fold it into the pot. This joker contains a special code word which will enable the winning player to reveal the contents of his pack. If the player is not able to do this, then the losing player will win the prize. The joker can sometimes change in appearance can change in its value depending on the bidding.
