The first step to becoming a champion in any game, even before you start formulating complex strategies is to know the nuts and bolts of the game. In rummy games, it means being conversant with rummy card rules and knowing what constitutes a winning hand. Moreover now Rummy is played online making it easier to access.

Online rummy has something to offer for everyone and now players of the game are playing with players from across the country. On the one hand each player has exposure to nuances of how the game is played by expert players but on the other hand it also means that players have to be prepared to change their strategy according to the set of players they are playing with.

Keeping this in mind, here are a few basics of the game of the Rummy Online:

The game is played with Decks having 53 cards. There are four suits of cards - Hearts, Spades, Clubs and Diamonds. Each deck of cards have 13 cards of each suit and one printed joker card.

Usually another card is pulled from the pack at random to be used as a joker card. This card can be used to complete sequences and sets as required.

To start using the Joker card, you need to form at least one sequence that is natural. A natural sequence is one which does not need a Joker card to complete it.

You need a minimum of two sequences (one natural) before sets are counted as valid.

The aim of the game is to meld the cards in hand into meaningful sets and sequences as early as possible. Alternately when you are unable to do so you need to minimize the points of deadwood (unused or useless) cards.

The sequences you form can be of three, four or five cards, though sequences of 3 or 4 are considered more acceptable.

Sets have to be of 3 or 4 cards maximum.

The score for numbered cards is counted as the number printed on the card. Face cards like King, Queen, Jack along with Ace carry 10 points each

On losing, the points of your Joker cards are not counted as part of your score.

All cards apart from joker cards, your sets and sequences will be added to your score.

You will be considered out of the game when you reach maximum points according to the type of game you are playing - it can be 101 or 201 points.

These are the nuts and bolts of the Online Rummy game that enable you to start playing the game. Once you are thorough with the basics of Indian rummy games, you will be well on your way to formulating your own unique strategies to win the game.
