How to Play 10 Card Rummy?
10 Card points rummy is usually played between 2 to 6 players with one or two standard decks of 52 cards, including the Printed Jokers. The rules for 10 cards rummy are simple and are summarised below:
Each player has to bring a minimum amount to the table, which has a pre-decided rupee value. A random toss is made to decide the player who will make his/her first move. In a clockwise direction, 10 cards are dealt to each player and a wild joker is selected from the remaining cards randomly. The remaining cards are placed face down after the cards are distributed to every player, which form the closed deck. The first card of the closed deck is placed face up to form the open deck.
The objective of the game is to make one pure sequence and arrange the remaining cards into sequences or sets. You can complete the objective by picking a card from the open deck or the closed deck and arrange the cards into sets and sequences. Once the objective is complete, you need to discard one of the cards into the finish slot and declare. If all the cards are grouped into valid sequences and/or sets, you win the game with zero points.
