As a kid, my mom and I always played Rummy 500, its one of my favorite card games, mostly because I actually KNOW how to play it. Other games like Texas Hold Em absolutely confuse me and take way too much patience for my liking! The rummy 500 game can be played with either just cards or you can also add in chips as well, poker chips work fine. The poker chips are if you want to make bets or side bets. There are several different kinds of rummy games that can be played right in your very own home.
Each one is going to have varying rules and guidelines. For example, with Canasta, also a personal favorite, you can play with 2 or 4 people. If you play with 2 people there are 108 cards in the pile, jokers, no laying off, and the main target is 5000 points. Each player also gets 15 cards for two players. Whereas with something like Kalooki which is a European game (known as Rummikub in the US), you get two decks, can play with almost as many players as you want, as long as each one gets 13 cards, there are jokers, you can lay off, and it's very similar to rummy 500.
Other card games you can check out are Pagat, Gin Rummy, and of course Russian Rummy. Rummy isn't your game? That's okay, you can also find poker chips and casino poker tables at our website as well as other accessories for all your gambling needs. This includes poker, blackjack, bridge, mahjong and just about any other game that has cards and chips!
