    i did not see it myself but asking around the internet most people are saying no you can not but then you get some saying you can,i think the best thing to do is call it at the start of the game that you can or you can not do it just until you find out if you can or not...sorry if thats not much help to you..but if its not in the rules then its upto you how this part is played.

What are the rules to play rummy when is it proper to say rummy


Rummy is only supposed to be called when a card has been discarded which can be played with points which are already played on the table. It cannot be called for potential cards still in a player's hand. Runs of 3 or more are always playable and depending on the preference if those playing suits may or may not be broken in groups of 3 or 4. All players start with 7 cards.

How do you end the game of 500 rummy /? IS IT THE FIRST TO 5OO OR DO YOU SEE WHO HAS THE MOST POINTS


Here are the rules as per the Bicycle Paying Card Company:

The Pack The standard 52-card pack is used.
Object of the Game To lay matched number sets of 3 or 4 and/or sequences of 3 or more cards of the same suit to be the first player to obtain 500 total net points.
Rank of Cards
Ace (high or low), K, Q, J, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, A.
Card Values/Scoring Score points by laying down and laying off cards as in regular Rummy, in matched number sets of 3 or 4, and in sequences of 3 or more cards of the same suit. For example, three or four 7s can be laid or a sequence of 3, 4, 5 of diamonds can be laid.
When any player gets rid of all his cards, the play immediately ends. Each player's score is then figured as follows: The player is credited with the point value of all cards that the player has showing on the table. From this figure is subtracted the point value of all cards remaining in his hand. The difference is added or subtracted from the player's score.
For example: If the cards showing for a player total 87 points, and the cards left in the player's hand total 90 points, 3 points are subtracted from the player's previous net score.
The first player whose score reaches +500 wins the game and collects from each opponent the difference between their final scores. If two or more players reach 500 on the same hand, the one with the highest score is the winner.
The Deal Deal seven cards to each player (except in the two player game, in which each player receives 13 cards). Place undealt cards face down in the center of the table, forming the stock. The top card is turned face up and is placed beside the stock as the up card to start the discard pile. The discard pile should be slightly spread, so that players can readily see all the cards it contains.
The Play Each player, beginning with the player to the left of the dealer, may draw either the top card of the stock or any card from the discard pile.
There are two conditions when drawing a card from the discard pile: 1) the player must take all the cards above the selected card and 2) the drawn card must immediately be used, either by laying it down in a set or by laying it off on a set already on the table. The remaining cards taken with the discard may be melded in the same turn or simply added to the player's hand.
Each player in turn, after drawing but before discarding, may lay down any matched set or may lay off any card that matches a set already on the table.
Cards that are laid off are kept on the table in front of the player. Sequences may not "go round the corner"; thus, A, K, Q or A, 2, 3 may be melded, but not K, A, 2. - See more at: http://www.bicyclecards.com/how-to-play/500-rum/#sthash.1oRfJip8.dpuf

If I pick up a discarded card, do I have to play it or use to build my hand?


You can either put it in your hand, and discard some other card, or you can keep your current cards, and discard the card that you just picked up.

Cant find game rules. dont know how to play thank you


The rules to Cadaco Tripoley Dice Game include:

1) Either divide the chips up equally between all of the players, or if you are playing for money, each player buys chips. Each round starts with every player placing one chip on each section of the Tripoley board. The sections of the board are:
  • Pot
  • Kitty
  • 10
  • Jack
  • King Queen
  • Queen
  • King
  • Ace
  • 8-9-10 All One Suit
2) The dealer shuffles a regulation deck of playing cards, jokers removed making a 52 card deck, and deal each player, and one extra hand, cards one-by-one until all of the cards are distributed. Depending on the number of players, some players may have one more card than others. This does not matter as the deal rotates around the table each hand and the extra cards will even out. The extra hand is not used in the basic game. It can come into play in one of the most popular variations.

3) The players who have "money cards" now collect the chips in each section. In the basic game the money cards are all Hearts, with the exception of the 8-9-10. For example, the player with the Queen of Hearts collects the chips in that section. The only section that may be a tie is the 8-9-10 section. If this is the case, the players who tie split the chips.

4) Each player then chooses their best 5 card poker hand for the next round. The dealer opens the action by checking or betting. Play continues to the left with each player either folding, calling the bet or raising. Once the last player to act calls, the best poker hand wins the pot section and all of the bets. In the case of a tie, they are split.

5)
Players now place their poker hands back with the rest of their cards and the dealer places the lowest card in his or her hand face up on the table or board. Each player is required to play their cards starting with the next card of the same suit. For example, the dealer plays the Two of Clubs. The player with the Three of Clubs places it on the table, then the player with the Four of Clubs, etc. Play continues this way until one of the cards is missing, caused by the dead hand, or the Ace of the suit is played. The player who played the last card must then play the lowest card from any other suit in their hand. If they are unable to change suits the action passes to the player to the left, who must change suits. The first player to play every hand in his or her hand wins the chips in the Kitty section. Each other player pays the winner one chip for each card remaining in their hand. This concludes the round. The player to the dealers left becomes the new dealer and each player ante's a chip to each section of the board again.
The game ends when the players decide to stop either by prearrangement or agreement or when one player has all of the chips. To distribute any chips that remain on the board at the end, deal five cards to each player for a last round of poker. The best hand wins the remaining chips.

We lost the instructions for word rummy


Simple Word Rummy:
Deal 7 cards per player. In a turn, a player: draws 1 card from the draw or discard pile; plays one meld from the hand or adds to a meld on the table; and discards one.
Melds can be 3+ of the same letter; a straight of 3+ letters in a row; or a word of 2+ letters of the same color (unless there are 2+ of the same letter in the word). Adding to a meld can extend the set or straight, or change its type (straight ABC + S to word CABS), or even flip them to the other color and letters.
The round ends when a player empties his hand after discarding. He get the total of the numbers on all cards in hand of all opponents. Each player with a meld of 5+ cards gets 50 points bonus. Game is 500 points.
