Gin Rummy, also know as Gin or Gin Rommé, was invented as an amusing variation of Rummy in the ‘Knickerbocker Whist Club’ in New York in the early 20th century. The name arose because at that time it was very common to play for alcoholic beverages. In the 1940s Gin Rummy enjoyed an ever greater popularity emanating from Hollywood.
Today Gin Rummy is one of the most popular forms of rummy, and as with all games in the Rummy family, you try to arrange your cards into sets and sequences and lay them down as quickly as possible. The aim of the game for two players is to get groups of the same values or sequences in the same suits, to be able to ‘knock’. You should pay attention to what cards you lay and which ones your opponent selects. The player with the lower value after laying wins the respective game. The winner of the whole game is the one who reaches the agreed number of points first.
Collect sequences and runs and get rid of your ‘Deadwood’ as soon as possible! Will you try to ‘Knock’ as early as possible or try to land a gin bonus?
