How to play Rumminy

Rumminy is an online game for two players, based on the famous Rummy or Ginrummy card game. The game consists of 74 pieces: two sets of pieces, each having numbers 1 to 9 in four different colours and a joker.

Objective

At the beginning of a game each player receives 8 random pieces. The objective for each of the players is to get rid of these pieces in turns, by making combinations of pieces on the playfield. The player who succeeds first is the winner of the game.

Turns

Each turn a player can add one or more of the pieces from his hand to the combinations on the playfield, or create new combinations. During his turn, a player can rearrange existing combinations, as long as each combination meets the requirements when he ends his turn by committing his changes.

If a player cannot add any of his pieces to the playfield, he must pass his turn and will receive an extra piece from stock. If one number is missing to create a valid combination, a joker can be used instead.

Set requirements

Combinations must consist of tiles of three or more successive numbers in the same colour, or sets of three or four pieces with the same number but having different colours.

Examples of good sets:

Three 8's in different colors
Three tiles of the same number in different colors.

Tiles 2, 3 and 4 in green
Three successive numbers in the same color.

End of the game

If a player finishes the turn with no tiles left, he or she is the winner. When you win, you gain points. The better the other player is the more points you get. The ranking of these points can be viewed at the leaderboards.

Games can be played against any of the other registered players. There are no limitations to the number of games being played at the same time.
