Gin Rummy is a hugely popular card game, where the aim is to form sets and runs of cards before your opponent. It's simple and quick to play, and if you are new to the game then Gin Rummy provides everything you need to learn it!
A member of the Rummy family, Gin Rummy is an immensely popular card game owing to the high skill component of the game when compared to other casino card games.
It is a two-player card game. Gin Rummy is played with a standard 52-card pack of cards. The ranking from high to low is King, Queen, Jack, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, Ace (kings over aces).
The objective in gin rummy is to score points and reach an agreed number of points or more, usually 100, before the opponent does.
The basic game strategy is to improve one's hand by forming melds and eliminating deadwood. Gin has two types of meld: Sets of 3 or 4 cards sharing the same rank, e.g. 8â¥ 8â¦ 8â ; and runs of 3 or more cards in sequence, of the same suit. e.g. 3â¥ 4â¥ 5â¥ or more. Deadwood cards are those not in any meld. Aces are considered lowâthey can form a set with other aces but only the low end of runs (Aâ 2â 3â is a legal run but Qâ Kâ Aâ is not).
A player can form any combination of melds within their hand, whether it contains all sets, all runs, or a mix of both. A hand can contain three or fewer melds to knock or form legal gin.
The deadwood count is the sum of the point values of the deadwood cardsâaces are scored at 1 point, face cards at 10, and others according to their numerical values.
Intersecting melds are not allowed; if a player has a 3-card set and a 3-card run sharing a common card, only one of the melds counts, and the other two cards count as deadwood.
Call Gin if you have no deadwood other than your discard, or knock if your deadwood is 10 points or less. At the end of a hand, the winner scores their opponent's deadwood points and a bonus for Gin!
After discarding a card, you can end the round by knocking if your deadwood point is less than or equal to 10. Then your opponent will have a chance to lay off his deadwood cards if those cards can form melds with those of yours. After that, if your deadwood point is less than your opponent's, you will be awarded a score equal to the difference in the deadwood points. But if your opponent has a smaller deadwood point, this is called an "undercut" and he will receive 25 points plus the difference in the deadwood points.
If you have no deadwood then your opponent will not be allowed to lay off, and an extra 25 points will be added to your score. The game ends when the score of a player reaches 300.
A player wins the hand by being the first to play all the cards in their hand by either melding, laying off or discarding. Once a player has gone out, the hand is ended. No other players may meld, lay off or discard their cards even if they have valid combinations already in their hand.
New and experienced players can all enjoy this game by utilizing the three different game type - Straight Gin, Oklahoma Gin, Hollywood Gin.

This game is not offering me the ability to knock. Or I don't know what knocking is. There were lots of times when my deadwood was 10 or less and it wouldn't let me knock. Plus it doesn't let you do your own melds. Full Review

Can't control it You can't organize the hand the way you want and the way the game does it makes no sense. If you have a straight it will break up the three of a kind... example. .. you have 9,9,9 and 5,6,7,8 ..that would use seven cards toward Gin..nope. it will take a 9 and put it with the straight 5,6,7,8,9...only using five cards towards Gin. Uninstalling. Full Review

I agree with everyone else, can't control the melding and the auto make doesn't always go with the best scoring method. Had 3 jacks, 3 tens and 2 queens. One of the Q, J and 10 were the same suit, and that's what melded leaving me with 50 unused points as opposed to 20. The game ended on the next draw giving me a lot more in deadwood that shouldn't have been there. Also, I thought if you call gone, the other opponent can't layoff on you. But here you can. Hmm, still have some glitches to work out. Full Review

Game play is pretty good, but as others have noted, the automatic algorithm for melding is not very good and misses pretty obvious combinations. e.g. with 2S,2H,2D,3S,3C,3D,4S,4H it makes 2S,3S,4S with 12 points un-melded instead of 2S, 2H, 2D 3S, 3C, 3D with 8 points un-melded Since that's fundamental to playing Gin Rummy, it has to get a low score for that.

Can't rearrange cards the way you want. I had ace 2 and 3 of spades. Ace 2 and 3 of diamonds. Ace and 3 of clubs and the 2 of hearts. It arranged them in 2 runs of spades and diamonds. It would not let me arrange them as 3 aces, 3 twos and 3 threes. This meant my Deadwood was 19 instead of 13 before the discard. I could not knock. Full Review

Typical bs freebie. AI rigged to win. Waste of time. No tutorial value. The only upside is when you uninstall this (cr)app you won't have to endure the interruptions of multiple loud, obnoxious commercials. Full Review

Jeff Happ Published date: June 13, 2016
Automatic melds are no good. Twice, I could have knocked if the game would have let ME make the melds. The game makes whatever melds it wants and won't let me change it to other perfectly valid melds. Full Review
April Lund Published date: March 23, 2016
Auto-sort It cannot recognize options. Had 6,7,8,9 run, 3 of a kind, 2 other 6's and an ace. Should have been gin but it couldn't see the 6's as 3 of a kind. No way to manually override. Has happened a few times. Full Review

Bad Freezes up on a regular basis. Go out, come back in and you're in the middle of a completely different game. Doesn't score hands correctly and only computer gets good hands. Uninstalling! Full Review
Dale Rusk Published date: January 21, 2016
Definitely cheats...... Or does it! Keeps giving suit cards when you need low cards. Also automatically sorts cards and not always to the best hand. I had a hand with 11 deadwood but i coyld sort it to make it 1 and it wouldnt let me drop a card in a meld. Full Review

More options? I'm about done with this app. I liked it better than most versions to start with but at least a dozen times the auto sort has ruined games for me and several times now it's refused to give me gin or big gin when I have it. Emailed them with pics proving it and got no response. If it's not fixed soon I'll be uninstalling Full Review

Bad algorithms It chooses my sets and won't allow me to modify what I want to keep. In certain cases, I would have knocked, but it chose a set that left too much. Then they Ginned. Uninstall! Full Review
