Q. What is the object of 13 Card Indian Rummy?

Each player gets 13 cards. The object is form runs (sequences) and sets using all the 13 cards. Normally, the winner will have 4 combinations of runs and sets, out of which 3 will be 3-cards and one will be of 4-cards. However, it is possible to have 3 combinations of 5-, 4-, and 4- cards; 5-, 5-, and 3-cards; or 6-, 4- and 3-cards. It is also possible to have just two combinations.

Q. What is a wild card?

All the printed jokers are wild cards. Plus all cards of same rank as the face up card below the stock pile on the table are wild cards.

In a sequence or a set any wild card can be used as a substitute for the missing card. Only one wild card can be used in a sequence or a set. The sequence that uses a wild card (as a substitute for the missing card) is a non pure sequence.

Q. What are the requirements of a Valid Declare?

A valid declare must have minimum two runs and out of these runs one run must be pure (called First Life). The second run can be pure or non pure (called Second Life). Either First Life or Second Life must have 4 or more cards. On a valid declare the scores of the rest of the players are counted.

Q. Why a sequence with 2 wild cards is not a valid sequence?

Yes, in Indian Rummy by Octro, only one wild card can be used in a sequence or a set. In Octro’s Indian Rummy we follow the rules followed by the leading clubs in India. We have clearly stated and documented these rules.
