I don't know how to play rummy. How can I learn to play rummy?
Indian Rummy is very simple to learn and play. It is played by 2 to 6 players at a time using one or two standard card decks. Each player is dealt 13 cards in hand and the remaining ones are used to form closed and open piles that are kept at the center of the table. When the game begins, each player picks a card from the closed deck or open deck and discards an unwanted card from their hand into the open deck to create different combinations of sequences or sequences and sets. The game continues until a player declares their cards, which prompts other players to declare theirs too. If the declaration made by the first player is valid, they win the game and get zero points. The remaining players gain a penalty on the basis of ungrouped cards in their hand.

What is the joker and what are wild cards/wild jokers?
Joker is the quintessential card in an Indian rummy game. It is used to replace a missing card in a sequence or a set. There are two types of jokers used in rummy: printed and wild cards. Printed jokers are readily available in a standard deck. Whereas a wild card is selected randomly at the beginning of the game. For example, if 5♠ is picked, then all 5s from other suits become wild jokers of that game.
What is draw and discard in rummy?
