While Blindfold Rummy was released over a year ago, it is one of the more popular Blindfold card games.
Rummy can refer to several types of games, all of them notable for similar game-play based on matching cards of the same rank – such as all nines – or sequence and same suit – such as 2 of hearts, 3 of hearts, 4 of hearts and 5 of hearts. These matching cards or sequences are called a group.
The simplest form of Rummy is Gin Rummy where your hand has several groups, and has very few unmatched cards. When the game ends, the player with fewer unmatched cards wins. You can end the game by “knocking”, and you should only knock when you think your hand is far better than your opponent’s hand.
According to Wikipedia, Gin Rummy evolved from 19th-century Whiskey Poker and was created with the intention of being faster than standard rummy but less spontaneous than knock rummy.
The mathematics of Gin Rummy shows that there are over 15 billion possible combination of hands that can be formed from the ten cards in a single hand. Once the draw and discard starts, this number can rise into the trillions! To win at Gin Rummy, you need to good strategy: You can incorporate statistics, percentage play, discarding, forcing a draw, baiting, taking cards on spec and other smart ways to out manoeuvre your opponent.
