When discarding to the discard pile, the card creates a meld. Can someone call rummy and pick out the cards that make up the meld or do the players wait till their turn and have to pick up the entire discard pile up to the card that makes a meld? For example: discard pile has 2, 8, K, 6, Q, 4, 8, 7 and the discard played is another 8. Rummy is called by a player and is allowed to pick out each of the three 8s, leaving all other cards in between in the discard pile.
We always played it as follows, if a card in the discard pile could be rummied when first threw down then yes ,but if the card is down say 5 cards and it can now be played then you have to pick up all the cards on top of it as well.
The rules we played by were this. If you want all the 8's in the pile, then you have to pick up all the cards and not just the 8's.
For the first hand where 2 sets are required, can you lay down more sets to get rid of cards? Or can each player only lay down 2 sets and then play on others sets to get rid of their cards?
True Texas Rummy is an 11 round game and the first round you are only delt 4 cards. The sets you lay down need to be in 3. Each round you will receive one more card until the last round where you receive 13 cards. On each round of the table during the play you are allowed to draw one card and discard 1 card. The first round you will need a set of 3 cards in a row and one discard in order to win this round.
In Texas Rummy, can wild cards be a meld? Can a 2 be used in a run and not be used as a wild card?
