5 Best Movies About Card Games

Movies just like card games have always captured our imagination and hearts. We belong to a nation that lives and breathes movies, idolizes their stars and elevates them to demigod status. Similar to movies, sports also remains a great fascination for Indians. We have seen sports icons revered like gods in ou country. The hero-worshipping cult phenomena originated in India. So, movies with sports as the main plot should always be a sure winner, right? Unfortunately, for a nation that is fascinated with sports and movies, we haven’t seen much of sports dramas. Barring a few phenomenal films like Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar, Iqbal, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, and Chak De, we don’t have any other notable mentions. Isn’t it baffling that in a country that is obsessed with sports and films, we haven’t seen the two clubbed together?

Indians love for card games needs no introduction. Movies made with card games as a theme can be as gripping as the game. It is bemusing to note that not a single Indian movie has been made about it, so far. Bollywood is losing big time by not tapping our card game love. Hollywood has cashed on this phenomenon big time; they have made some exceptional movies with card games as the central plot. Those movies were highly successful because of their entertaining screenplay and a gripping narrative. Let us delve into some of these movies in detail:

Rounders:

Card Games

This is undeniably the greatest movie made on card games in cinema history. Rounders is what you call a quintessential card game movie. Matt Damon plays a guy named Mike, a law student, and a former poker player shoulders the responsibility to raise funds to help a friend struggling to pay off his bad debts. He now has to play at an underground poker circuit that he vowed never to return after losing his life savings. Rounders tapped the underground poker culture prevailing at that time very well and beautifully transformed it into the screen. The poker scenes in the film were truly the best of its kind. The settings, milieu associated with poker were portrayed so realistically. The film touched various issues like the mindset of players, psychological nuances involved in the game and most importantly the lingo normally used by professional players. Though it was not successful at the time of its release, it is now considered a cult classic movie in the poker circles. The film was largely instrumental in propelling poker to the mainstream popularity that it enjoys today.

21:

Card Games

The film is based on the best-selling book by Ben Mezrich – Bringing Down the House. This fantastic movie showcases a group of MIT students who “count cards” to win millions at casinos around Las Vegas. However, things go awry once the casinos realize they are being scammed. This movie was inspired by the true story of the MIT Blackjack Team. Blackjack is undoubtedly one of the most popular games played in the casinos worldwide and the movie. Panned by the critics at the time of its release, it has now become a cult-classic.

Maverick

Card Games

This movie featuring Mel Gibson and Jodie Foster is a gripping movie based on Poker filled with ample doses of witty humor. Mel Gibson plays a gambler who wants to participate in the Wild West’s biggest poker game but falls short of $3000 to the required buy-in. The film is all about Gibson’s effort to raise the funds and troubles he encounters in his efforts. Though not as great as Rounders in its depiction of poker, it is still recommended for beginners.

The Cincinnati Kid

Card Games

This is one of the best poker movie ever made. The film tells the story of a cocky, brash gambler played with élan by Steve McQueen out to topple the poker veteran Edward G Robinson, referred as “the man” in the poker world. Set in New Orleans in the 1930s in the wake of Great depression, the film captures the intricacies of the game very well and is known for its accurate portrayal of the high-stakes gambling culture.

The Sting

thesting

This film was a critical and commercial success and was awarded 7 Oscars. A con artist teams with up his old friend and seeks revenge on a mobster who was responsible for the death of his accomplice. The film is remembered for some accurate depictions of swindling, gambling and scheming techniques widely prevalent at that time. Poker played a key part in the plot. The one poker scene in this film looked far more realistic that those of any of the films mentioned thus far.

Other honourable mentions in this list are Casino Royale, The Cooler, California Split, The Gambler etc. Feeling excited after reading this article? Want to play a game?

Types of Online Rummy Players

Online rummy has been a blessing in disguise for many of us. It has come as a breath of fresh air for those of us who were struggling to cope up with playing high-intensity action games or mind-bending strategy games. The beauty of online rummy lies in the fact that it strikes a balance between the above-mentioned games and comes across as a down-to-earth game. It carries moderate doses of action and strategy but can still be high octane thriller when played between talented players. There are virtually no barriers to play card games like online rummy.

We have often instructed our players to observe their opponents’ moves every game and make their moves accordingly. Have you ever thought why we accentuate this point every time in our blog posts? It is important for online rummy players to classify their opponents based on their strengths. If you know the mindset of your opponents, then it will be easier to deal with them.

The following is a broad classification of online rummy players in general which we made after years of observing and reading their game play.

  1. Aggressive – These are players who love to attack or enjoy being in a confrontation. They ruthlessly prey on the gullible players. They display their aggression openly by spamming the chat messages with frivolous, non-sequitur messages – other times they spam the chat with angry messages. We would advise our players to ignore such messages and stick with their original plan and strategies.
  2. Manipulative – These are some of the smartest folks out there. Card games are always a tricky business and they are masters in it. They are good in deceiving their opponents either by intentionally dropping the cards you want or trying to win over you with seemingly friendly messages in the interactive chat feature. Do not fall for their trap – Do not fall for their trap – they would have dropped the card as bait, their friendly messages might be an effort to obtain vital information.
  3. Assiduous Players – Watch out for these Archie Bunker types. Be extremely wary of them, they hate losing – should they lose the game they don’t take it lightly. They are very conservative by heart and it will reflect on their game play. They take very long time to make their move that their opponents get literally tired of them and fold their cards. They do win a lot of times more than the expectations.
  4. Light-hearted – They are your average Joe. They are mostly fun-loving, easy-going, care-free average blokes. Most of such guys play the game mainly for entertainment and losses won’t affect them easily. What we love about them is their resilience and an easy going mentality. If you see a player celebrating jubilantly by posting a spree of messages after a victory, chances are pretty high that he belongs to this category. They also don’t whine much about the losses the way other category players do. Although they are here just for fun, they do win lots of rummy games & tournaments more often than not. We consider ourselves fortunate to house a barrage of these fun-loving folks whom we consider as our pillars of strength.

Maybe you need to find under which category you fall in? As mentioned earlier, it’s always better to know what you are up against and be prepared. We hope that the article served its purpose in explaining about the different characteristics of online rummy players.

Idioms that have their origins from Card games

Card games

Have you ever thought about the relationship between certain common idioms and phrases that we use in real life and card games? Some words which we use inadvertently in our daily lives have larger significance in the world of online rummy and other card games. On closer examination, it will be revealed that these phrases indeed have their origin from the card games. Let us briefly analyse some of these phrases:

  1. Cards are stacked against – This phrase is often used in situations where luck and fortune elude us leaving us with little chances for a victory or to put it simply a very disadvantageous situation. This term has its origins in gambling, where to stack the cards means to arrange cards in secret in one’s own favour or against one’s opponent. Isn’t that a recurring situation while playing rummy online or any other card games? How many times have we seen players land in such a situation where cards are stacked against them leaving them with very little chances of victory?
  2. Play your cards right – It is used to emphasize the need to work or negotiate correctly and skilfully. This is very much applicable to rummy where it is very important to play our hand cards correctly. An error in judgment or a lapse in concentration will cost us dearly. Online Rummy is not a game that can be played by being laid back and placid – you would require 100 % concentration, focus, and energy.
  3. When the chips are down – We use this when things really get really difficult for us. This phrase has its origins from the poker game: when all the bets have been made and all the cards dealt the finality of throwing your chips in a poker game.
  4. The joker in the pack – A fortune or a lucky charm that could change a situation in a way that you do not expect. Jokers play a very important role in a rummy game. In fact, they are often referred as trump cards that could change the course of the game. The game often swings in favour of the person holding multiple jokers. We can often see anxious players in tables waiting for the joker cards with a bated breath.
  5. A few cards short of a deck – It can be thought of as a polite way of referring someone with a less intellectual capacity. It is actually an insult concealed with humour. Don’t we hear people who lost the game lamenting about how they were “A few cards short of a deck” very often?
  6. Have an ace up your sleeve – If you have an ace up your sleeve, you are in secret possession of something which would come to your advantage. This phrase has its origins in the 18th century where while playing card games players would secretly hide aces in their sleeves and pulled them out when nobody was looking.

I’m sure most of us wouldn’t have recognized these many similarities between online rummy and real life. This shows that the relationship between card games and players goes well beyond their screen time. Players can refer rummy rules and how to play rummy tutorial in our site for a better understanding about the game.

Make Money online by playing online games

Haven’t we seen people whining about their mundane, prosaic existence doing a job they shouldn’t have accepted in the first place? If not, can someone explain why do people these days have multiple job switches, career changes and finally end up with mid-life career crisis?

Don’t we all long for the day where we can make money in the comfort of sitting at home? Most of us would answer this question with a resounding “Yes”. Thanks to the booming economy and meteoric increase in the number of start-ups that require freelance workers, people are now able to make some extra bucks at the location they prefer. Most of us would want to ditch the whole 9 to 5 stereotypical work timings and choose to work at our comfortable timings in our comfortable location.

On the surface making money online might appear as an enticing prospect but we must be wary of the ways we choose to make money online. There are many fraudulent organizations promising to pay unbelievable amounts of money for ridiculous and menial jobs (Random Ad-posting and Online surveys come over to my mind – a countless number of individuals have been scammed by this). On a closer look and thorough examination, it will be revealed sooner than later that they were out to scam you. Also, remember any website that asks you for deposit initially before you can make money online is most likely a fraud; proceed with caution else you might be double crossed.

The first step to avoid the ignominy of being scammed in an online job is to identify your niche. Quoting great philosopher Confucius, “Do what you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life” – How true is it? Pursuing the thing you love most should be the most important thing in your life. If you have a proclivity for writing, that’s a starting point.  What type of articles you are good at writing? Do you believe your writing can stand out from the sea of writers out in the market? Ask these questions to yourself. The prerogative is in your hands altogether. The more you introspect, the more answers you would get.

There are many ways to earn online (affiliate marketing, blogging, freelance writing, Google AdSense etc.). It might be too long to discuss here and it might not also be everyone’s cup of tea.

Most of us would be aware of the online gaming industry and the buzz it has been generating in our country. Online gaming Industry has been a booming industry in Emerging Markets like India. A massive percentage of young population, willing investors in the gaming industry and a proliferation of game developers are some of the reasons that act as a driving force in propelling this gaming industry fast to its pinnacle. We are sure that you be curious to know about the online games that allow you to build your fortune quickly without investing any money? Let us discuss in detail about the two games which are making massive inroads into the Indian market and are fast becoming the online gaming industry’s paradigm of being the ideal games to earn big money.

Playing Indian Rummy Online – There are lots of misconceptions about playing rummy online for money in India. Online Rummy is a perfect skill based game which was declared legal by the Supreme Court of India. There are stringent laws and guidelines for games that include betting and gambling but online rummy remains outside the purview of gambling in India. Rummy is a card game often played with two or more decks, in which the players try to form sets and sequences of cards. Indian Rummy is a card game played in India with little variation from original rummy. It is considered a cross between Rummy 500 and Gin rummy.

Ever since the card games became digitized, we have many rummy game lovers literally hooked in front of their PCs and laptops. The sheer thrill and amusement of online rummy has been irreplaceable.  Many rummy sites have sprung up and have been successfully dishing out different variants of games much to the delight of the users. The immense popularity of rummy sites like DeccanRummy, Junglee Rummy explains this phenomenon. A site like DeccanRummy hosts multiple free roll tournaments in their website and it is not surprising to see players rushing in huge numbers to participate.

The advantage of playing rummy online is the extraordinary opportunity to win easy cash. Most rummy sites roll out stunning promotions periodically so that its players get immensely benefitted out of it. Be it a festival or any other special occasion, Rummy sites never miss an opportunity to roll out special tournaments with humungous cash prizes.

Most online rummy sites are browser based that saves you from the trouble of downloading software and installing it. Mobile users have the option to play the game from their app anywhere on the go.

Playing Poker Online – Online poker in India is gaining momentum albeit slowly and steadily. Reports reveal that online poker start-ups’ is worth at an estimated $110 to $120 million. It is an ample evidence to assume that online poker business is getting big. Poker is a game where the player bets that the value of his hand is greater than the hands held by others, subsequent players must either equal or raise the bet or drop out, the player holding the highest hand at the end of the betting wins the pot. Though luck plays a vital role in the way hole cards are dealt you cannot deny the element of skill/talent that is required to win the game. Since the laws in India do not permit to set up casinos to play the game, many poker lovers are swarming online poker sites in huge numbers – this explains the soaring popularity of online poker sites like Khelo365, PokerBaazi in India. These sites conform to legality and provide a safe environment to play. Sites like Khelo365 offer plenty of free tournaments for their users allowing them to play the game without spending a dime.

As a thumb rule, online card game lovers must make it a point to play as many free games as possible when they register with any of these websites and start earning first with it and then they can proceed to cash games.

There you go! With such interesting games to make money online listed above, we can see a huge smile planted on your faces.

Playing card games, a sin?

It’s amusing how people have been falling for this trap for years. Aren’t there some elders in our families who antagonise card games? Don’t they scream with aghast when they see us playing any card games? Have you ever wondered why they have this visceral antipathy towards card games?

In case wondering what might be the reason behind associating card games with stigma, it is because the people critical of card games consider them as a vice, an embodiment of evil, name it as gambling.  Many people remain blinded by this belief that playing the card game is unethical and deem them as a gateway of bad omens. Unfortunately, this dim opinion about card games has been passed on for generations without having the slightest knowledge about the game.

To support their claim, they will cite some historical references like Mahabharata epic where gambling in a dice game resulted in a war that brought a catastrophe. While this might be true to some extent as far as gambling goes, does it sound sensible to equate all card games with gambling? And are dice games and card games one and the same?

There are quite a few card games like poker where gambling, betting takes the centre stage. But those are games where chance plays a bigger role superseding the skills. It can be postulated that games like Poker, Teenpatti are also skill based but practically you cannot undermine the role chance plays in such games.

Card games like Rummy are purely skill based. As we have mentioned many times, chance has nothing to do with rummy games. It is the strategies and tricks that you deploy during the course of the game, that determine your winning chances. You can even refer the popular tips collected from all rummy players in this blog. Unlike poker, where the rules are complex and tedious, rummy is fairly a simple game with straightforward rules. This is one of the main reasons why many players all over India choose online Rummy ahead of other card games.

We have also mentioned about the legality of playing online rummy games. If the game is illegal, we wouldn’t see players swarming many rummy sites in huge numbers to play. Rummy is similar to games like Chess, Puzzles, and Sudoku which helps to groom the intellect in us. The game finds its application in the learning arithmetic as well. A lot of factors like simple maths, probability, permutation, and combination come into play unknowingly. Just like other games where we see gripping contents, rummy can be as gripping and spellbinding when played between talented players.

Rummy games are extremely rewarding when compared to other games considering the limited effort you are required to put in.

11 Tips collected from Rummy winners

Dear, Rummy lovers! we’d like to share some of the common strategies followed by our rummy winners. We spoke to them regarding this and these are some of their thoughts which they have gathered after playing the game over an extensive period of time. It could be pretty useful to our newbies.

  • Set your priorities right. First, understand making a pure sequence is a top priority.
  • Patience – Patience is the key to success. Do not rush through the game. Though it is important to play aggressively, it is also important to exercise restraint and play the waiting game. Rummy is all about staying calm and focused
  • Concentration – This is the key to success. A slight distraction could play spoilsport and pull you down. Curb your time on additional features like chat and concentrate on the game. Avoid outside distractions like music, television while playing rummy.
  • Always keep a watch on the other player’s card. Keep track of cards they pick and discard so that you will get a good idea of the sets/sequences they are trying to meld. Also, this way allows you to take a decision to retain or discard a particular card.
  • Try to get rid of cards with higher points. This is to ensure you lose with minimal points should the opponents declare before you.
  • Remember to play smartly. Do not get fixated on making a particular suit. For eg, 5 of any suit can be put together with 3 & 4 of the same suit and can also be melded with of the same suit. Do not ignore any of those till you make a perfect run.
  • Jokers are trump cards while playing rummy. Joker is an easy way to meld your cards into sets and sequences. It is considered as a jackpot in the game of Rummy. If you have a pure sequence and a joker too, you should try to use that joker to make the second sequence by using that Joker as the idea is to meld all the hand cards into sets/sequence quickly
  • Do not keep waiting for one card endlessly. Re-evaluate your strategies.
  • Do not retain cards for too long. Discard the cards when you find them of no use.
  • Arrange the cards in alternate colors as it will avoid confusion while discarding the cards.
  • Most importantly, do not lose heart. You may lose a few games in the beginning. It’s in your hands to make sure those losses aren’t curtailing you in any way or any form. Play the game cleanly and follow these strategies. Your glorious days are not too far ahead.

How to cope up with losses in a rummy game?

rummy

Isn’t it an obvious fact that every sport has a winner and a loser? As expected, the winner goes through various emotions from ecstasy to tears of joy. Similarly, the losers experience varying emotions ranging from being distraught, angry to a deep sense of disappointment which disenfranchises them from playing the sport again. Pragmatically speaking, we must strike a balance to control our emotions. We must be cautious not to over-celebrate when we win – At the same time we must not drown in a pool of misery for our loss. Winning and losing is a part of any sport. Rummy is no exception to it. It is important to treat game as a game

We have seen some players frustrated and leave the game altogether after a few losses. This is the primary reason we keep emphasizing our new registrants to spend enough time at the practice tables before heading to cash games.

Failures are the stepping stones of success. You shouldn’t allow a loss to deter your quest in achieving your dreams.

Practice games

True to the saying practice makes a man perfect. We suggest all our players play the practice rummy games in our lobby as soon as they register.

Some of these general instructions might be helpful so that the losses you could incur don’t cause much damage. Of course, we are not going to ask to put an ostensible cheerfulness concealing your sadness. We know how painful it is lose a game. Following the below tips might help you recover sooner than later from a loss.

  • Treat game as game. Do not develop an addiction or obsession over it.
  • Strike a balance in your personal life so that you do not spend too much time here.
  • Schedule your activities properly and allot time to play rummy only during spare time
  • Remember rummy is a form of entertainment similar to your hobby. Do not think of it as a main source of income
  • Do not continue playing if you are on a losing free on a particular day. Take a break and come back fresh.
  • Fix a limit for a loss. Do not keep playing blindly exceeding the set limit. Rummy stalwarts who have mastered the game take a call at the right time on when to stop.

While we understand the pain of loss, players can draw solace from some of the benefits that they derive intrinsically by playing rummy.

Concentration

Your ability to remain focussed on the game will determine your chances of winning/losing. You will be surprised to note that your concentration level have increased drastically.

Decision-making skills

Rummy is a game where decision making plays a vital role. The decision to drop a card can eventually turn a course of the game. With sufficient practice, you would master the technique behind what cards to hold or what to discard.

On your toes

The game of Rummy involves lots of critical analysis and drawing patterns. You must be on your toes at every moment in the game. Lethargic attitude or any complacency would instantly cost you the game. You must carefully follow your opponent’s moves at every instance and think twice before discarding/picking up a card

Diligence

Rummy will teach you how to be diligent all the time. Ask any prolific rummy player their secret of success, the instant answer would be about how diligent they were.

Rummy is a fairly simple game but that doesn’t discount the fact it could make a dent in your pocket if played wildly. Like we mentioned, it is all in the player’s hands to play responsibly.

6 common mistakes made by Rummy Players

It is human nature to be prone to mistakes. Rummy is no exception to this. A few mistakes and strategy loopholes in the game will bring your party crashing down. We have observed a set of common mistakes rummy players make that we have listed here for your reference.

Negligence of Discard Pile

This is the biggest mistake players keep making continuously, that causes them to lose. Before they start building castles in the air about victory, players must keep a watch on the discard pile. If your opponent is picking up cards you discard, then you must be double cautious not to drop any further cards which he might pick up. For this, you must be insightful about the cards your opponents are holding.

Overplaying the game

We see some of the players hopelessly slogging it out after being dealt an undesirable combination of cards. Rather than dropping the game early, we see those players persisting and waiting for the opponents to drop their dream card. While we appreciate players’ endurance and patience, players must understand that their probability of winning the game is very less if their opponents are successfully picking cards from the open deck. They must act proactively in such scenarios.

Failure to drop out

If your hand cards are hopelessly undesirable, then there is no point in persisting with the game. Dropping out of the game at the beginning would save you points. If you get hand cards with no possibilities of a set/sequence, no jokers or any connected cards then consider dropping out of the game early to avoid the embarrassment of losing with high points.

Heading to High stakes tables with minimal exposure

We have always been suggesting our players  play practice tables first and get properly acclimatized with the game play. The more you practice, the more chance you have to win games. Unfortunately, some players without sufficient practice under their belt head over to the high stakes games and lose miserably. As we have mentioned many times, we play host to a bastion of players with exceptional skills across the country. To compete with them, one must equip them self with sufficient skills to even stand a chance. Having said this, those who had followed our five effective Rummy Strategies have found themselves in a comfortable position.

Flimflam in Chat feature

We have always encouraged players to have normal chat regarding game play/strategies using our Interactive chat feature as Rummy has always been an interactive game. However, we see some players are carried away too much by this feature and are engaging in flimflam and personal flaming in the chat feature. Because of this even committed players get distracted and lose the game. We request the players to exercise restraint while using chat feature and avoid such meaningless banters.

Lack of Patience

Patience is a virtue. In fact, it is the mother of all virtues. You do not become a billionaire the very day you start a business. Rummy follows a similar pattern. It takes time to understand the game, absorb the intricate features, sufficient practice and a solid dedication to gain artistry in Rummy. Players who follow this hierarchy are immensely successful. Others get carried away by their emotions due to lack of patience and make mistakes which otherwise could have been avoided. Ask any Rummy stalwart, they will explain how their patience helped in conjunction with their efforts.
