And now, with internet connectivity available almost everywhere, online rummy keeps people entertained for hours at a stretch.
India’s fascination for card games is not just restricted to urban areas but in rural areas as well, you’ll find people gathering in the evening to play cards, chat and laugh till the wee hours of morning. A faint smell of their hookahs or endless cups of tea makes the game even more fun!
Card games are the easiest and simplest form of recreation and Indians love it for the very reason! With time, rummy has maintained its charm with Indians and in fact, we have our own version of rummy, called Indian rummy!
Rummy has transformed its ways of being played. From what was essentially a club-oriented indulgence and would peak among certain sections during Diwali, card games like rummy have now become a year-round indulgence for Indians.
