Adding to the fun element, here are 3 interesting fun card games to play with friends during monsoon.
#1: Crazy Eights Game
Also known as Eights and Spanish rummy, it is remotely drawn from rummy rules. Played with 2 to 7 players and 52 cards where the players are less than five. If they are more than five, then 2 decks of 52 cards are shuffled together for the game and all the 104 cards are used.
It is a shedding-type card game where the objective is to get rid of all your cards to the discard pile. Eight cards are dealt to each player while the remaining is placed as a pile on the table with the top card face up at the start of the game. You need to discard your cards either matching rank or suit of the face-up card.
#2: Ship sails
The objective of the game is to have 7 cards of the same suit. Each player is dealt 7 cards by the dealer facing down. The remaining cards are kept outside the table.
You have to decide which suit of cards you would want to collect and start the game by giving a card to the player on your left and receiving a card from a player to your right. During the course of the game, you may change your decision about which suit to make. The player who makes 7 cards all from the same suit is the winner.
#3: Indian rummy
Considered to be a cross between Gin rummy and Rummy 500, Indian rummy has etched a prominent place in the minds and hearts of the people.
Regarding how to play a rummy card game, it is played with 2 to 6 players, 2 decks of standard 52 cards are used for the game. It is a game of drawing and discarding of cards.
