The Deal In Indian Rummy Games

Indian Rummy is a bit different that basic rummy. To start the game, the deck is shuffled and each player selects a random card from the deck. The players sit at the table based on their card value. The highest card draw gets to choose their seat, and the next highest card draw sits to the right and so on until the table is full to capacity with the players in the game. The lowest card draw becomes the default dealer. The player to the left of the dealer selects a card from the deck and places it face up on the table. This card becomes the ‘joker” and all cards of the same rank as well as the actual printed jokers become wild cards in Paplu Indian Rummy games.

Packing In Indian Rummy Games

Indian Rummy games are usually played for small stakes. However, a player who has a less than promising hand may choose to withdraw from a game. This is referred to as packing or dropping. The player can only pack or drop at the start of their turn. They would elect this option instead of picking up a card. Packing allows a player to withdraw gracefully from the table and limit the amount they will lose in the game. However, there are penalties for packing. Players who elect to drop from the game must pay points to other players.
