Gin Rummy is a member of the Rummy family of games. As with most games there are plenty of variations out there, so the game might not be exactly like you play it or have different points for some things.
Below I'll explain the rules we use on this site. I'll start by explaining a few basic concepts, and then go over the gameplay and scoring of the game.
The objective of Gin Rummy is to collect cards into melds and have as little deadwood as possible at the end of a game.
The game is scored based on how much deadwood you have at the end of each game. A game can span several rounds, it's over when one player reaches points.
At that point grand total for each player is calculated, with bonuses, and the player with the highest score wins the whole game. Each player gets 10 cards.
The remaining deck is put on the table between the players face down, and one card is put face up besides the deck to start the discard pile.
In each turn a player must start by drawing one card. He can either draw the top card from the deck or the top card from the discard pile.
Generally you only draw the top card from the discard pile if you know that the card will help you create a meld with some of the other cards in your hand.
After the player has drawn a card he must discard one card by putting it face up on top of the discard pile. If the player has drawn the top card from the discard pile at the start of the turn he may not discard that card until his next turn also, that wouldn't make any sense at all.
He may however discard a card he has just drawn from the deck, or any other card he has in his hand. The game continues like this, with players drawing and discard cards, while they try to build sets and runs in their hand.
The round ends when one player knocks , by discarding a card and putting it face down on the discard pile. The player that knocked the knocker then shows his melds and his deadwood by putting it face up on the table.
The opponent then shows his melds and deadwood. The opponent is allowed to lay off any of his deadwood cards onto the knocker's melds if he can.
For example if the knocker had a meld, H1 H2 H3 and the opponent has a H4 as part of his deadwood he can add it to the knocker's meld, and then it won't count as deadwood anymore.
The knocker cannot do the same, he can never lay off his deadwood. Additionally, if the knocker has Gin or Big Gin no deadwood then the opponent is not allowed to lay off any cards.
There are some rules for when you can knock. They vary between different versions, but this is how it's done on this site: You may only knock if you end up with 10 or fewer points of deadwood human cards count as 10, aces as 1 and other cards their numeric values.
The card you knock with put facedown on the discard pile is not included in that number. Knocking with no deadwood, i. Going Big Gin is when you have 11 cards in melds, in which case you can say you have Big Gin and the game ends without you discarding the final card facedown.
The game also ends if neither player has knocked and there are only two cards left in the deck. In that case the hand is a tie, and neither player gets any points.
Scoring is based on deadwood and bonuses, the actual melds don't actually count for anything, they're only good to minimize your deadwood.
I'm sure there are plenty of people who prefer other rules, but you can never please everyone and these are the rules I'm going with. This online version of Gin Rummy was made by me.
