How to Play Gin Rummy


Use a 52-card deck, and set any Jokers that came with your deck aside, and don't use them.

To find out who is the dealer, draw a card.

The top card of the deck should be dealt face-down to each participant.

Your card melds should be sorted.

Examine the 10 cards you now have. Sort the items into any "melds," which may be runs or sets.

Remove a card that you don't want.

An unhelpful card from your hand should be chosen and placed face-up in the discard pile.

If your whole hand forms a meld, knock.

When every card in your hand is a meld component, and none of them is mismatched, this is known as "gin."
