How Is Pool Rummy Played on RummyCircle?

Pool Rummy at RummyCircle.com is a 2 to 6 player game played typically with 2 or more packs of 53 cards each (including one printed joker per pack).

  • Each player joins a Pool Rummy table by paying a fixed entry fee which is used to create the Prize Pool.
  • A toss will decide which player makes the first move.
  • Each player is dealt a set of 13 cards randomly.
  • First card from the pack is placed in the open deck indicating that the game has started.
  • Remaining cards are placed face-down in the closed deck slot.
  • A joker card is randomly selected at the beginning of each game.
  • One or more jokers can be used to complete sets and/or sequences.
  • Objective : Arrange all 13 cards in-hand in sequences and/or sets.
  • Each player takes turns to pick/discard a card from closed/open deck to complete sets and/or sequences.
  • You can move a card to the finish slot to declare your sets and sequences.
  • To declare the player must show the cards in hand by grouping them in sets/sequences and clicking on 'Declare' button.
  • Compulsory : To finish the game, you must declare at least two sequences, one of which must be a pure sequence.
  • Caution : With two decks, you cannot use the same card twice in a set for instance 7 7 7 is not a validset.
