I can assure all my readers that I have nothing to do with this site.Β  It is just a coincidence that a popular Indian game of cards is named Rummy.

    Funny. Rummy is also played here. Back in the 80s, we visited my in-laws often. Karen had 10 surviving siblings at the time, with most of them in Arkansas near their parents and over half of them married. I concocted a variation on Rummy that would let all of us, spouses, included, play at the same time — the number of decks of cards we used depended upon the number of people playing at that one long table.

    • There are many variations in India too with jokers, without jokers, three packs, four packs, and so on. Like your case, it is mostly a family game, but many social clubs have card rooms where high stake rummy games are played every evening.

    I think Rummy was one of the many card games we played when I was young. We played for buttons.

  4. Not actually an Indian game. It’s played here, and when I went looking, there is some dispute about where it originated. The US, but probably as an off-shoot of a Spanish/Mexican ga,e. WHich may have been an offshoot of Mah Jong.

    Rummy card game here as well…well, not probably now but I seem to recall my father and mother went to card game parties in at least the 50s – probably earlier…
