How is the Scoring Done in Deals Rummy?

Deciding the winner : The first player to finish after meeting the game objective wins. The winner gets sum of chips from all losing players depending on their score.

Points calculation for the player who loses:

Each card carries a certain number of points. The losing player gets points equal to his/her hand score which is computed as follows :

  • J, Q, K, A of any suit carry 10 points each.
  • All other numbered cards carry the same points as their face value e.g. 7 carries 7 points and 3 carries 3 points.
  • Joker cards carry zero points.
  • At the end of the game, a losing player's hand score is computed by adding points for cards that are not grouped as sets/sequences with the following exceptions.
    • If the losing player has no pure sequence, all cards are counted.
    • If the losing player does not have two sequences, but has a pure sequence, only the pure sequence is not counted.
  • A player can get a maximum of 80 points. For instance, if a player's hand score is 85 he/she will still get only 80 points. But if a player's hand score is 75, he/she will get 75 points.
  • Deal Show: If the losing player has not had his first turn before the opponent has made a valid declaration, then :
    • The losing player gets points equal to half of his/her hand score. For example, if the hand score for a losing player is 30 points, then the player gets 15 points as his score.
    • The minimum points a losing player can get in this case is 2 (for scores 2, 3, 4, & 5).
    • The maximum points for a losing player in this case is 40 (for scores 80 or more).

What are the Maximum Points a Player Can Get?
