Gin Rummy is a popular card came in which the player's are dealt ten cards each.
Put simply the object of the game is to make sets of cards of the same rank or runs of cards in the same suit. Players alternately take a new card from either the deck or the discard pile into their hand. If it does not fit it is discarded, if it improves the hand it is retained and another card is discarded. The player who is able to dispose of all of their cards wins the hand and scores points, the first to score a predetermined number of points wins the game.
