  • Each player is dealt 13 cards at a time in Indian Rummy.
  • A tie/draw is not possible in Indian Rummy.
  • There are three types of Rummy: 1. Deals Rummy; 2. Points Rummy; 3. Pool Rummy. The ‘Drop’ option is supported in Pool and Points Rummy.
  • In a single-deck, one printed joker card is in the game, and a joker does not need to be in a declaration. Any player cannot pick a joker card present at the table after an opponent has discarded it.
  • The word ‘baiting’ means to plan your moves in a way that the opponent can be trapped into discarding the cards you want. Usually, this is done by making them believe that you’re looking for a specific card, while in reality, you are looking for something entirely different.
  • The ‘show’ is to declare the game after one of the players has completed making valid sets/sequences.
  • ‘Rake’ is the amount of the service fee you pay to the host from your winning amount.
  • A person who has completed their discards and does not need to discard anymore is called a ‘floating’ player.
  • Observe your opponents. Understand what cards they are going after and don’t discard those cards if you get one of them.
  • A random wrong declaration will make you lose maximum up to 80 points. The sequence of high scoring cards will let you go home with all the money/points – higher the value of your cards in your sequence/set, higher the number of points you have. For the right declaration, one should have one pure sequence with atleast two sequences in total to show.
