Similar to other rummy games players are required to discard all their cards by making melds which are sequences of 3 or more cards in same suit, or group of 3 or 4 cards of same rank.
PLAYER - At the begining each player is dealt nine cards. The players can see their own cards.
STOCK - After dealing cards to the players remaining cards are set aside forming a stock pile.
WASTE - An empty waste pile.
MELD AREA - Three emply piles for each player which can be used to create melds. Players must use their own designated meld areas for creating melds.
The game ends as soon as any player has used 10 cards in his/sher melds.
