Rules of Kings and Jacks in Rummy

In the game of rummy, each card plays a different role. Both the king and jack cards are face cards and face cards usually carry a higher power, each face card carries 10 points and therefore, should be given priority as soon as the hand is dealt and you notice having either of these cards.

So if you get these cards, you should try to meld them away in a sequence immediately but if this is not possible, you should get rid of them as they carry higher value so keeping them without forming a sequence may cost you.

When you have a king or a jack card, you need to complete the sequence with a queen and ace card. By forming this sequence, you can improve your chances of winning. With a king card you can form only one sequence— “Jack-Queen-King-Ace”, but with Jack, you can also form “7-8-9-10-Jack”.

Do not keep the face cards with you till the end of the game, if they are not melded. This is because by the end you may not have many chances to discard them. So, it’s better to discard them as soon as you realize that they cannot be put into a sequence.

Double Rummy Rules

Double rummy is played with two decks of cards and is usually played between more than six players. Two decks of cards with 52 cards each are used in the game. The rules are also modified when a higher number of cards is used.

Double Rummy Card Rules
  • In a double rummy game, there is a high chance of stockpile depletion, so the stockpile is allowed to turn once without shuffling.
  • The game can be suspended and resumed from the same points if all players agree.
  • If a card is discarded without drawing, the card is placed face-up on the stockpile and other players can choose to pick it or some other card from the pile.

Run Rules in Rummy

Runs or sequences in rummy is a set of three or more cards in the same suit, with the sequence being 7-8-9-Jack-Queen-King-Ace or Ace-2-3-4-5 and so on. Note that the sequence can have an Ace either after the king, that is King Ace two a run in rummy, or before a 2 card, which is Ace-2. A sequence King-Ace-2 is considered to be invalid.

Sometimes a wild card can be used to substitute the desired card in order to form a run. A run in which no wild card is used is called a straight run. You need at least two runs in total out of which one run should be straight in order to call rummy.
