Gin Rummy

This game is played by 2 players. At the start of a game each player is dealt 10 cards, 1 card is put face up as the first card in the discard pile, the rest of the cards are put face down as the stock pile. The first player starts the round by picking up a card in the discard pile or the stock pile, and then discarding a card from his hand to the discard pile, then the next player starts his round, and so on. The cards on hand form melds and deadwoods. Melds are 3 or 4 cards of the same rank; or 3 of more cards of the same suit in sequence. Melds cannot overlap so one card cannot belong to two melds. The rest of the cards are called deadwood cards, each deadwood card has points, A has 1 point, 2 has 2 points, etc, J, Q, K has 10 points. The object of this game is to reduce the deadwood points. After discarding a card, the player can knock if his deadwood points are less than or equal to 10. The other player can have a chance to lay off his deadwood cards if they can form melds with the knocking player's melds. After that, if the knocking player's deadwood points is less than the other player's, then he is awarded scores equal to the difference in deadwood points. But if the other player has less deadwood points, then the other player gets 25 plus the difference in deadwood points. If the knocking player has no deadwood then the other player is not allowed to lay off, and the knocking player is awarded an extra 25 points. And if all the 11 cards in a player's hand form valid melds, then he can knock before discarding a card and he is awarded an extra 6 points. If there are only 2 cards remaining in the stock pile, then the game ends in a draw. The match ends when a player has accumulated 100 points.

OK....I will break the scoring down it is very simple. As Eagle_Kiwi said if you lose your score is 0. So you must beat the computer to get a score. The scoring is this your total amount of points minus the computers points x's 200. Example if you beat the computer 150 - 0 your final submitted score will be this 150 x 200 = 30,000. I hope everyone understands.rogbow

If computer beats you, your score submits as zero.Eagle_Kiwi

I to got gin on my last hand and beat the computer 135-2 got 21,200. my best is 35,500 aarrrrggg! lol got 99 & then got gin, I can't recall the exact amount of points I got(???-0) it didn't even hit me until score had already been submitted that I got that close to the alltime score cause I was zone'n but that's my best score so far. (missed it by 501 points-a.t.s.=36,000, me=35,500 : ( lol) . (ARCADEBOSS RULES!!!) : )D!RTYD@N76

As a note... I beat the computer opponent 158 - 2 and that equaled 30800 points.Master Of Puppets

That makes sense -W-W-. I like your scoring idea. This scoring system seems to leave too much to luck/chance. Still a fun game to play. 3*s from me.Master Of Puppets

@ MOP, from what I have found, the higher difference between you and you opponents score the higher your submitted score is. For the best score, ideally you would get to 99 points, not let your opponent get any points, then get a Gin on your last hand, if you did that and they were hold very high deadwood, say 70, you would score 194 - 0, that would give a great score. I've done both, got to 98 - 0, and won a Gin with them having very high deadwood, but not in the same game. Fun game, but I'd like to see it first to 1,000 - then your final score is simply your difference, you win 1,000 to 200 you submit 800 points. 4*'s from me.-White-Wolf-

Fun game but I have no idea how the High Score is calculated. It's probably quite simple, but alas so am I. :-)Master Of Puppets
