How to Choose a Rummy Variant According to Your Nature

There is something fascinating about decisions. Do you know what it is? They are made by you. They won’t be the same as those of others. Why? It is because your personality plays a crucial role in the kind of decisions you make. There is a famous quote - “If you know your enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the results of a hundred battles.” How true do you think the quote is? To win any battle that comes your way, it is important to know yourself first and then your foe. Once you become well-versed in judging your personality, you are good to go. So, it becomes quite imperative to know who you are, so that the decisions you make are worthwhile.

The same notion goes for the game of Rummy. Since rummy has different variations such as Points Rummy, Pools Rummy, and Deals Rummy, evaluating which variant of the game will be perfect for you, can help you come out as an achiever. Without consuming much of your time, let’s help you know which rummy variant will do the trick for you. Here we go:

  1. Points Rummy: If you are a jack of all trades and a quick decision maker, then Points Rummy is the game for you. This format of rummy consists of a single deal and lasts for the shortest duration. So, you can quickly finish the game and move onto the next one. Also, if you are a workaholic and don’t like sitting idle, you can play this express version of the game. This way your time is well utilized, and you get the much-needed respite. Also, those who are impatient and would prefer a quick game should opt for Points Rummy.
    • Traits Required: Workaholic and Jack of all Trades
  2. Pool Rummy: Are you a forbearing person who loves non-stop playing? If this is your virtue, you are bound to have an abundance of fun with Pool Rummy. The game smoothly goes on for long, so before asking why it is longer than other variants of rummy, understand the technicality of the game. The game has two versions - 101 & 201 Pool Rummy. The numbers 101 & 201 indicate the expelling boundary, i.e., if a player reaches 101 or 201 points, reliant on the version of Pool Rummy, s/he will get eliminated from the game. It continues till the time only one player is left as a winner with 0 points. It is the best game for those who can’t handle too much pressure and want to play smoothly making careful moves.
    • Traits Required: Forbearing and Logical Person
  3. Deals Rummy: If quick games pump you up, prefer to play Deals Rummy. This rummy variant is just like Points Rummy, but a bit lengthier and consists of a fixed number of deals. Each deal that you play is crucial to winning. Overall, you can say that Deals Rummy is like a mouse and a cat game that can give you full-on entertainment and thrill. Although there is a risk factor in the game, it is enthusiasm that binds you to play this variant of the game.
    • Traits Required: Adventurous and Quick Decision Maker
