Rummy Card games

Rummy is a very popular game all over the world. Most card lovers like to play rummy card games. Rummy is a challenging game and can be played by anyone.

1)500 rum: 500 rum can be best played with a group of two to four people. The object of the game is to get rid of all the cards in your hand.

How to play:
The dealer distributes the cards to the other players starting from the left opponent. Ten cards are distributed if there are two players. Likewise seven cards are distributed if there are four players. After the cards are distributed to the players, the remainder of the card pack is placed face down as a stock.

The player who starts the game must begin by taking one card from the stock of the remaining card pack. If the player has a valid sequence (cards of consecutive order) of the drawn card in his hand you can meld it with the other cards. However, melding is optional. There are no rules as such to meld, just because you can. If you pick up a card from the stock, you have to discard some other card in your hand in exchange. The play continues as long as there are no cards left in the hands of a player. The player who melds all his cards and discard his last card wins the game.

2) Concentration Card Game: Concentration is a type of card game of the rummy family. Concentration is specially designed to reinforce the concept of contractions. The object of concentration is to turn over a pair of matching cards and discard them from play. Concentration is a single player or a two-player game.

3) Canasta Card Game: Canasta is a very challenging game and is popular all over the world. If you like Solitaire and hearts you will like canasta too. Canasta is a single player game and can also be played with a friend over the Internet. The object of the game is to score points by melding as many cards as you can.

How to play: The dealer distributes 11 cards to each player. The remaining cards are placed in the center, with a top card visible to the players. The players need to meld three or four cards of the same kind. A player cannot have more than one meld of the same card.

Examples: Three tens would form a perfect example of a meld, while three jokers will not. You can meld two sevens and one joker, and not one six and two wild cards.

The player starts the proceeding either by drawing a card or by picking the entire pack of cards. The player continues to meld their card as long as they want. They must end their turn by discarding single card face up. Three is a special bonus card. Any person who receives a three must immediately play it for his team and must draw a new card in exchange. If the first card is a three the entire discards pile gets frozen.
