Indian Rummy is a traditional fun game of cards played all over the world. This 13 card variation of Rummy is the most popular among the Indian card game players. Enjoy!

Indian Rummy, a variation of Rummy, pronounced as /rəmē/, is played between 2 to 5 players with 13 cards in India. The aim is to form groups of sequences and trials/sets to meet the game requirements. There are several variations of the Rummy game, among which the 13 card variation is the most popular among Indian people, hence the name Indian Rummy.

How to play:

In the beginning, 13 cards are distributed to two or more players. The main objective of the game is to create a pure sequence of cards (example: JQK) of the same suit or set (example: AAA) of cards having equal value. Players take turns to take cards from the faced down deck or the opponents' thrown card. In Indian Rummy, a player must have a pure sequence (First Life), pure or impure Sequence (Second Life), and a set of four cards to show or declare a game. There are Joker cards in the game that can be used to form an impure sequence. After a player declares the game, the sum of the card numbers is counted. If a player is unable to make pure Sequence (First Life), then all of his cards will be counted. If a player can make pure Sequence (First Life), then the rest of the invalid sets of cards will be counted, including the Joker cards. Players are ranked according to the total sum of the card numbers.

-Place the cards together that are likely to form a Pure Sequence. E.g., if you have 6, 8, 9 of the same suit, place them together so that when you get a 7, or a 10 of the same suit, you can form a Pure Sequence.
-If you already have a Pure Sequence, then try to keep the cards that are likely to create a Set.
-Place the Joker card with the high-value cards when someone else declares the game so that your points will be less. But this only works when you have a Pure Sequence.

Rules to play Indian Rummy:
-A player must have two Sequence; one Pure Sequence, and one Pure or Impure Sequence.
-A set must have three or four same value cards of different suits.
-A player can use Joker cards only if they have a pure sequence.

Doesn’t Support Rotation

Why there is no 3 pack option?!

For me it would be perfect if it supports screen rotation in both directions.
