Play the classic card game of Gin Rummy free online at Games.com. In this modern update of 18th century Whiskey Poker, your goal is to score higher than your opponent to win. In your 10-card hand, form melds of three or more cards in either a run of the same suit (a sequence) or a group of the same value (number or face card). Try to keep your deadwood (un-melded cards) to a minimum, which will allow you to knock when those cards total less than 10 points. By knocking, the hand is over and you will be given points for any of your opponents’ deadwood, while forfeiting points for your own deadwood. If you can get all your cards melded, yell “Gin” and win the round without any deductions. CHEATS & TIPS: Let Opportunity Knock: When opportunity knocks, answer as often as possible. This is true in life and Gin Rummy, since holding out for “Gin” may cost you in the long run. Don’t let the temptation for extra points get the better of you by putting off a chance to knock. Remember, the more you knock, the more points you accumulate. Don’t Welcome Rejects: Another truism of both life and Gin Rummy. When selecting which pile to draw from, stock or discard, try not to select from the discard pile unless you know you’ll form a meld as a result. Be cognizant of which cards you’re willing to risk losing if you can’t meld them. Lower is always better. Stay on the Straight and Narrow: If you hope to form a run of consecutive cards, it is much better to tack on at the beginning or end than in the middle. For instance, if you have an 8 and a 9, it makes sense to hold out for a 7 or a 10 to complete the run. But if you have an 8 and a 10, you’re half as likely to pick up the 9 you’ll need. Also, build triangle groups whenever possible--7 of hearts, 7 of diamonds, 8 of diamonds--this will give you twice the chance of forming a meld (in this case a group of 7’s or a run of 6-7-8 or 7-8-9 of diamonds.)

Has anyone noticed, while playing against the computer, it cheats? Watch very closely, it will pick up the discard and then knocks but the actual card it picks up isn't  anywhere to be seen!!

I love to play Gin Rummy, and I don't mind losing, but  I am not happy that the computer is giving my points to my opponent!  It has happened many times.  This needs to be fixed!

Upon loading up the game and probably startling Google Chrome itself with the absurdness of what I was playing, the word disappointment temporarily fell out of my vocabulary because after even 30 seconds of playing my head was filled with rainbows, amazement, and awe at how simultaneously simple and entertaining the experience was. Aside from the frightening array of colours that would distress even the hardiest of retinas, everything about this game is unbelievably simple and easy to grasp. Taking the fact that you are a mechanical unicorn as given, you are thrown into a bubblegum world of fantasy and sparkle which, upon witnessing it with your own eyes, will make you understand what those Skittles talk about when they bang on about ”tasting the rainbow”. As a robot unicorn, your job is to simply run endlessly across terrain, jumping intermittently when the ground beneath you ends and landing on the next platform. The jumps become increasingly difficult as you progress, with terrain and giant star-shaped obstacles getting in your way.

I would like to say when I play Gin the computor always cheats.  It can't always get gin without even picking a card.  That really bothers me about this cite.  It also seems to happen mostly if I'm winning.

I hate it when your going really fast against the computer , then another opponent comes in the game really slow :(  Some people should pick up the tempo. I mean I could nap 5 min. before they lay down their card.

@SCSTORM I have noticed some monkey business, but not that one. I usually see the picked up card as part of the 'knock' cards.

@lillypill if you call gin (no points in hand) 25p plus points of opponent

otherwise when you go out with cards in hand then your points are deducted from opponents


hope i could help
