Rummy is the worlds’ third most popular game, combining the element of skill with the luck of the draw.
Rummy was invented over 200 years ago and has since gone through many evolutions allowing for the wide variety of games of which each is a variation of the original game.
All Rummy games have similar formats, played by 2-4 players and consist of picking up cards from the stock pile or the discard pile to create sets or runs of 3 or more cards. The first player to meld all of their cards (except for the last discard card) in this format is the winner.

Rummy Games – Basic Rules
Rummy is a name that is given to a group of games of the same nature. There are many games that are based on a specific game play. The games are designed for 2-4 players and the main objective of the games is to dispose of all of the cards in your hand before your opponent. You rid your hand of cards by forming sets (3-4 cards of the same ranking) or runs (3 or more consecutive cards of the same suit). The game consists of two basic moves each turn; drawing a card from the stock or discard pile and discarding an un-needed card from your hand. When a player has formed sets and runs with all of the cards in their hands (except for one discard card) the game ends.

The History of Rummy
We all owe a great debt of gratitude to the 17th century Chinese people for coming up with the idea of Rummy. Over the past 200 years there have been numerous card games played though few have become as popular as Rummy!
Unfortunately, the details about the invention of Rummy are blurry and there is an ongoing debate as to whether or not the game of Mahjong was the proto-type for Rummy. The most popular theory is that a Gin enthusiast from New York thought up the game in the 19th century (Gin Rummy). No matter what theory you believe in, we are all lucky that this exciting and challenging game has become so popular throughout the world!
