The goal of the game is to arrange all 13 cards into sets and/ or sequences. A minimum of one pure sequence without the joker is required for valid declaration. A second sequence is required and can be with use of a Joker. The game begins with a toss to decide which one of the players will make the first move.
Every player is randomly dealt 13 cards. The first card of the pack is placed in the open deck to show that the game has started. Rest of the cards are placed face down in the closed deck spot on the table. At the beginning of the game a joker card is picked at random. If by chance the joker card selected happens to be the printed Joker of the card pack, then players are allowed to use the Ace card of any suit as a joker in the sets and or sequences they make.
Turn by turn each player picks a card from the closed deck and discards a card to the open deck. With this the player seeks to meld all cards into valid sets and or sequences. Players can use one or more than one joker card to complete their sets and or sequences. Once all your sets and or sequences are complete, you can declare by moving a card to the ‘finish’ spot on the game table.
When you declare, you must arrange your cards in sets and or sequences and do a ‘show’ of your arranged cards. Once you have done this, you will need to click on the 'Declare' button. The game will considered to be finished if you declare at least two sequences, of which one must be a pure sequence, i.e. a sequence made without the use of a Joker card. Please note that if two packs of cards are being used in the game, you cannot use the same card twice in a set. For example 9♠ 9♠ 9♥ is not considered a valid set and will not be considered a valid declaration.

Each card carries points. Players who lose get points based on their hand score. All the numbered cards i.e. 2-10 carry points based on their face value. So an 8 carries 8 points and a 2 carries 2 points. J, Q, K and A of any suit each carry 10 points. The Joker card carries no points. Points for all cards that are not arranged in sets and or sequences are added up for each losing player at the end of the game. In case a player is not able to form a pure sequence, points for all cards in the players hand will be counted. If the losing player has two sequences, only one of which is pure, then only the pure sequence cards are not counted. A losing player can get 80 points at the most. Even if his or her hand score adds up to more than 80 points, he or she will still gets maximum 80 points. In case the losing player has not had his or her first turn before another player makes a valid declare in the game, then the losing players only will get half the points of his or her hand score.
What is the Drop Option? There are three Types of Rummy Variations. In 2 Player deals rummy game, the players cannot ‘drop’ a deal. In more than 2 player games, a player can drop the game in their turn at any time during the game.
In all variants of rummy games, if a player misses three turns in a row or consecutively, they will get dropped from the game. Their points will be calculated based on their hands score, the maximum points being 80. To drop the game, the player should not have picked a card from the open or closed deck in that particular turn. If you drop the game in your very first turn, you get 20 points. If you drop the game in any subsequent turn, you get 40 points. If you miss 3 turns in a row (consecutively), you are dropped from the game automatically and you get 40 points.
In case you get disconnected, you can ask to be either dropped after three missed turns, or, you may ask to remain at the game table till you are connected again. What if You Miss Three Moves? In 2 player games, if a player misses 3 turns in a row, he/she will be automatically dropped from the game with a score which is equal to 80 points or the actual hand score, whichever is lower. In more than 2 player games, if a player misses 3 turns in a row, he/she is dropped automatically from the game with a middle drop score.
