Progressive Rummy Rules
Progressive Rummy is a variation of Contract Rummy. The principal differences between Progressive Rummy and Contract Rummy are:
- In Progressive Rummy, each player is dealt six cards in deal #1, seven cards in deal #2, and so on - one more card per hand in each successive deal.
- In Progressive Rummy, the contracts must be met exactly: 3 cards for a set, and 4 cards for a sequence. There are no extra cards.
To be perfectly clear, here are the number of cards dealt, and the contracts, for each of the seven deals in a game of Progressive Rummy:
|Deal Number||Cards Dealt||Contract|
|2||7||One Set and One Sequence|
|5||10||Two Sets and One Sequence|
|6||11||One Set and Two Sequences|
For the remainder of the rules, refer to the Rules for Contract Rummy.
