A Game Of Rummy

Every Sunday, Boyet and I have lunch with my family and then go out on a date in the afternoon. Or if we are lazy, just stay in my house just like what we did yesterday.

There was no movie showing in the theaters that caught our fancy or was their anything in particular that we wanted to buy that would merit a trip to the mall.

We opted to bum around the house and watched “Transformers” on DVD. Yes, we only got to see it yesterday. Then we listened to the music on my MP3 while playing pick up sticks and snacked on hotdogs, chips and soft drinks.

D.A, my younger brother and his girlfriend Elen joined us in playing pick up sticks. We had fun playing this game while reminiscing about our childhood.

If I only discovered the card game called Rummy much earlier; we could have tried it yesterday and enjoy playing it. My other brother, Paul, could have joined us as well.

Rummy according to this very informative site I visit is the third largest card game played all over the world. I also learned in this site an interesting fact about this game is that it is also called “Gin Rummy” because the people who invented the game love to drink gin.

The site explained in full details how to play the game, how to score and to win the game. With the site’s detailed explanation the game seems to be a simple yet entertaining card game to play. Rummy just follows a simple match making rule.

About two to six players can play this game. The game starts with the agreement among players about the target score. The default score for each player is one hundred. The winner is the one who gets the target score.

Aside from featuring the history, how to play the game, you can also play an online game of rummy in this site.

Maybe next Sunday, I can try this game with the rest of the folks at home.
