Gin Rummy is a super fun and easy card game for two people. There are several ways to play as you can see by visiting the link. The players decide if the game will end at 100 points or whenever. You go with your best shot at sets, based on the cards you hold at the start. The idea is to make complete sets within your 10 cards, before your opponent does, and have no cards outside a set. You can go for 3 or 4 of a kind, or runs in the same suit. Aces are low in gin. ♦️
I like playing straight gin because that’s how I played with my mom growing up. It’s simple and uncomplicated. You can have a conversation during the game without losing focus because after a few draws and tosses you’re usually only waiting for one or two specific cards to finish up. I have fond memories of playing gin rummy with Mom, along with Chinese Checkers, which we also played a lot ~ 3 triangles each, using up the whole pie. This makes a long game and is not for lightweights. I hardly ever play cards now because there are so many board games people prefer. ♟
Please tune in tomorrow when I will blog about Hangman.
