In deals rummy, you start with pre-allocated chips at the beginning of the deal, for a pre-decided number of deals. One winner wins all the chips at the end of each deal. At the end of a pre-decided number of deals, the player with the maximum number of chips is the winner for the rummy game. Simple, isn’t it? So, let’s move ahead with the formats of deals rummy. There are two –
Best of 2 Deals is played between 2 players with one or more decks of cards. A total of 160 chips are given out to each player at the start of the game and you join a table by paying a fixed entry fee. You win a game when you make at least 2 sequences, one of which has to be a pure sequence, and group your remaining cards into sets or sequences and declare before your opponent does. The amount of chips you win depends upon how many points your opponent has when you declare. The same rules apply to you when you lose.
