Rummy is one of the world's best-known and most popular games, due in large part to its simplicity and elegance. There are numerous Rummy variations, and the rules, of course, vary from game to game, but share certain common features. The object is to get rid of all the cards in your hand by either creating your own sets - three or more of a kind, or three or more consecutive cards of the same suit - or by adding a single card to other existing sets (either your own or your opponents). The first player to rid themselves of all their cards wins the hand.
In addition to the Commercial Rummy Games listed below, there are also specialized Rummy Cards, and popular rummy-related games such as Phase 10, Michigan Rummy, Rummikub, Tile Rummy, and Tripoley. A related traditional card game is Canasta.
