How to Play Points Rummy Card Game

What is ‘Points Rummy’?

If speed thrills you, then you’ll love playing Points Rummy! It’s a variant of cash rummy where 2 to 6 online players battle for points, with a pre-decided Rupee value for each point (0.1, 0.2, 0.5 etc). The player who makes the first valid declaration wins the game with 0 points and wins all the cash based on the opponents’ total points. Each game only runs for 1 deal, making it the fastest way to play more games within a short span of time.

Here’s how points rummy is played:

  • Each player is dealt a set of 13 cards at random and the first card from the pack is placed at the open deck, indicating the start of the game.
  • The remaining cards are placed face down in the closed deck slot.
  • Then, a joker card is randomly selected and a system generated toss decides which player makes the first move. In the instance that a printer joker is picked, players can opt to use Ace cards of any suit as a joker in their sets/sequences.
  • Now, each player must aim at arranging all 13 cards in their hand in a sequence or in sets. To do this, they each take turns to pick or discard cards from the closed or open deck. Learn how to form sequence and sets.
  • Finally, players can move a card to the finish slot to declare their sets and sequences. They must show the cards in hand and group them in their sets/sequences for it to be declared a win. The game ends when the finishing player hits on the ‘Declare’ button.
  • Remember, there must be at least two sequences, including a compulsory pure sequence.

How are points calculated?

  • Everytime you drop a game, you earn penalty points. If you drop at the beginning of the game, also known as a “First Drop”, you get 20 points.
  •  Similarly, if you leave midway in the game, before someone makes a Show, then it’s known as a “Middle Drop”, getting you 40 points.
  • And if you haven’t melded your cards by the time someone has made a ‘Show’, you end up with 80 points, also known as a “Full Count”.
  • If you leave during a game, Penalty = Full Count X Entry Fee will be deducted.

How to win?

  • To make a winning ‘Declare’, you need:
  • One Pure Life ( sequence without any Joker) – Compulsory, or else you get full count. One more Life with/without Joker – Compulsory
