Rummy is a card matching game and the object of the game is to score the most points. The goal of each hand is to be the first player to play all of their cards. There are three methods to play cards including: to meld, to lay off, and to discard.
At the beginning of the game the dealer is randomly selected and during the game the deal goes around the table clockwise.
Rummy uses a standard 52-card deck for 4 players. Seven cards are dealt to each player. The remaining cards are placed face down on the table to form the draw from pile (DFP). The top card of the DFP is placed, face up, right next to the draw from pile to start the discard pile (DP).
The player to the immediate left of the designated dealer always plays first and the play proceeds clockwise around the table.
