Tips for improving your game! As in any skill game, in Rummy you can be a good player or an excellent player! Do you want to get better? Here are a few tips to help you in the process!
The deck of cards- Rummy games can be played with a single deck, or with two identical decks of cards. It is important that during the game you are alert and aware of the cards that have been drawn and discarded. You do not want to wait for a card that has already been discarded in previous turns!
Drawing a card
The card draw is the main strategy in Rummy games. A players’ decision to pick up a card from the stock pile or the discard pile can tell their opponent a lot about the players’ strategy and what type of hand they have. It is for this reason that it is recommended to pick up cards from the stock pile unless the card in the discard pile complete a set or run.
Drawing a card can be important for reason other than the one mentioned before. Some games require you to collect a certain number of points before you can start melding the cards in your hand. When you collect the higher ranking cards there is a better chance of being able to reach the minimum point requirement. However, picking up high ranking cards in the later stages of the game could be risky as you could be caught with many points if your opponent melds all of their cards first!
Just like picking up cards, discarding cards is part of the game strategy. Although you might feel you need to discard the cards in your hand that are not being used, be sure not to discard cards that could potentially help your opponent complete sets or runs. For example: If you discarded a 6 of spades in your previous turn and your opponent picks it up, it’s best not to discard another 6, or the 5 or 7 of spades as those cards could help them.
These tips are just the beginning to winning Rummy! Next time you play, remember all these tips that will help you on your way to winning!
