## How is Deals Rummy played at Junglee Rummy?

The Game: Deals Rummy is a 2 to 6 player game which is played with 1 or more pack of 53 cards each, including the Printed Joker. Players play for a pre-decided number of deals and a fixed number of chips is allocated to every player at the beginning of each deal.

Gameplay: A toss is made to decide which player will make the first move along with selection of Wild Joker. Then, each player is dealt with a set of 13 cards randomly. After the cards are distributed, the first card from the pack is placed face-up to form the open deck and the remaining cards are placed face-down as the closed deck.

Players need to arrange all the cards in their hand into sequences and/or sets by picking a card from the closed or open deck and discarding one of the cards on the open deck. In order to win, players need to form at least two sequences, out of which one has to be a pure sequence. Once this objective is completed, a card has to be discarded on the finish slot to declare the sets and sequences.

Winning Chips: At the end of ever deal, the winner gets the chips from the losing players according to their scores. When all the deals are over, the players are assigned ranks depending on their chip count. The player with maximum number of chip count will be assigned with the highest rank. In cases of tie among players, the players with equal chip count will have to play tie breaker game to decide the winner.
