In the 1940s, Hollywood discovered the game Gin Rummy and it quickly found widespread use. On the one hand, the name Rummy derived from rum, because they often gamble for rum, on the other hand rummy means strange.
At the start of the game each player receives 13 cards. The remaining cards form the deck. The aim of the game is to lay your cards quicker than your opponent(s). The values of the cards still held by your opponent(s) at the end of a round are converted into negative points. If a player exceeds the 50 or 100 point limit, he/she loses. If there are 3 or more players, this player is knocked out, and the game continues until just one player remains.
