# Closed Rummy Rules

This rummy game contains 106 tiles: 104 number tiles and two Joly tiles. The number tiles are divided into four colors: red, yellow, blue and black. Each color contains the numbers 1 to 13 in duplicate.

The rummy game also contains four boards which hold tiles during the game so that each player can only see his tiles.

## Players and starting the game

The game can be played by 2, 3 or 4 players. At first you have 45 seconds to declare doubles and to place your tiles on the board.

Each round of the game you have to draw a tile and discard one.

## Tiles and distributing them

**Grouping and arranging the tiles**

After being shuffled, the tiles are grouped into piles of 7 and placed on the table. A single tile will remain ungrouped – it will be turned and will become the ace in the game.

**Distributing the tiles**

The tiles are distributed automatically for each player. The group with one more tile goes to the first player and the division continues until each player has two piles.

Each player arranges the tiles on the board - each has 14 tiles except the first which has 15. From the left piles, tiles will be drawn during the game.

Doubles

Before starting the game, if a player has a pair of identical tiles (same number and same color), he may declare doubles with a double click on each desired tile.

Any other player who has a double can exchange with the other. You can only change the double of the same value ("high double" to “high double" and " low double" to "low double"). Tiles from 2 to 9 are low and from 10 to 13 they are high. Tile number 1 is considered a high double.

Doubles are distributed and changed automatically after declaring them and if there is double availability from other players.

## Closed rummy objective

The objective is to close on the board, basically to group 14 pieces on the board correctly (simple board game, Mosaic, Bicolor, Monocolor, etc.) and to end with the 15th remaining ungrouped piece by pressing Close.

If a player has entered the game room when the game has started he can wait until the end and automatically enter the next game.

## Closed rummy has multiple types:

## 1. Simple game

The player chooses to make suites and formations on the board. The game ends when, after discarding a tile, the player only has suites and formations on the board.

It is mandatory to find at least one suite on the board. It is not mandatory to have a formation on board, you can just close with suites.

**Simple closing on the board – Suites and formations**

**Simple closing on the board – Suites**

**Note**

When all the formations are complete on the board (14 tiles + 1 separate closing tile) the "Close" button occurs. If the player does not want to close at the moment (and wants to close with Joly), he can still play.

This is incomplete and the Close button does not appear because there are 13 tiles + 1 tile. You must close with the 15th tile only when the close button appears.
