Want to give Points Rummy a try? Here's what you need to know.

Understanding Points Rummy

Points Rummy is played with decks of 52 cards. Each card has a value assigned to it in points. This is called the rank of the card. In Points Rummy, the cards are ranked thus - 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10. Then, there are the Ace, Jack, Queen, and King; each is allotted 10 points. The point will have a pre-determined monetary value.

The cards need to be arranged into valid sets and sequences. The person who makes a valid declaration in Points Rummy the fastest is the winner. The winner receives cash equal to the sum of the points of the unmatched cards of losing players multiplied by the point value.

Significance of Jokers

In Points Rummy, before the game starts, a value is assigned to the point. Suppose it is INR4. If you are able to group all of your cards into valid sets and sequences before anyone else does, then you win and your points tally becomes zero. Now, the value of the unmatched cards (cards that are not yet arranged into sets or sequences) of each of the other players will be added up. For example, the value of the 5 players‘ unmatched cards is 10, 20, 30, 40, and 50. Then, the amount you will win in this game of Points Rummy= 4 x (10+20+30+40+50). So, you will win INR 600.

Basic Rules of Points Rummy

There will be a minimum of 2 to a maximum of 6 players at the multiplayer rummy table. 13 cards rummy and hence Points Rummy is played with 2 decks. Once all the players are given their cards, the rest will be set facing down. This forms the closed deck. The upper-most card is lifted and set down facing up and forming the open stack or discard pile of Points Rummy. The face-up card is designated to be the cut joker, and if you have a similarly ranked card of any suit in your hand, that too will be a cut joker.

You can use either the printed jokers (carrying the image of the joker) or the cut jokers to take the place of any missing card while forming sets and sequences in Points Rummy.

All the cards have a rank as we explained earlier. The joker has zero points.

Turns will go around the table. You will have to draw a card and discard one. Once someone has made a valid declaration, the Points Rummy game will end.

Calculating points in Points Rummy

The person with the valid declaration in a game of Points Rummy wins and has zero points. The points of the unmatched cards of the losing players will be added up. 2 things to remember in this context -
  • If the losing player doesn't have even 1 pure sequence, all his/her cards‘ value will be added.
  • If the losing player has a pure sequence but hasn’t completed 2 sequences, then the value of all the cards except the ones forming the pure sequence will be added up.

Dropping from a game of Points Rummy

Players are allowed to drop from Points Rummy. At the early stages, a drop will add 20 points to your tally. A middle drop is worth 40 points. You can re-enter the game but your penalty points will be added to the score you had when you left the game.
